Ramires: Called by Jose Mourinho

The Brazilian international was one of those who some thought may be moved on by Mourinho, but that Portuguese seems a confirmed fan - having tried to sign him at Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

"I am eager to start working with Mourinho, my phone rang recently and it was Mourinho," he told Globo Esporte.

"It surprised me. We talked a lot and he said nice things.

"He said that he requested Inter Milan and Real Madrid sign me when he was coaching those teams, he said that he is happy that I am in Chelsea's squad.

"I was already eager to work with him and I am now even more motivated after finding out that he wants to work with me. I am feeling we will have a great season."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
