Chelsea transfer news: Mourinho to try bid for €61.3m Man Utd target in January

Chelsea transfer news – Mourinho to wait til January.

Any fans hoping for some Chelsea transfer news on deadline day may be disappointed as it looks like Jose Mourinho is waiting until January to try again for John Stones.

The Everton defender was linked with a £45m move to Stamford Bridge this summer, but a deal looks increasingly unlikely as the Toffees have rejected four approaches for the player.

Also linked with Manchester United, Stones is thought to be keen on moving to Chelsea, meaning a January deal remains a possibility for Mourinho, according to the London Evening Standard.

For now, Chelsea have signed Nantes defender Papy Djilobodji as a cheap alternative to provide some cover for their current defensive players.
