Demba Ba: Chelsea striker would be happy to play under Jose Mourinho

Ba was speaking after Chelsea's post-season friendly defeat to Manchester City in St Louis, in which Chelsea squandered a three-goal lead to lose 4-3.

The striker admitted that the fact that Mourinho had already spent time at the club could well give Chelsea an advantage next season.

"You see what he has won, what he has brought to his teams and to his players individually, and of course he is one of the best," Ba told Sky Sports News.

"He knows everything about Chelsea having already managed the team for three or four years. He knows everybody here and he knows the club.

"Everybody is thinking about it and everybody is happy. They know that he is a person that wants to win."

Mourinho, whose departure from Real Madrid was confirmed earlier this week, has been widely tipped to succeed interim manager Rafa Benitez at Stamford Bridge.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
