Forget Pogba: Chelsea To Battle Barcelona For Atletico Madrid Midfielder In January

With pressure mounting on Jose Mourinho to deliver and reenergize his team so as to close the gap with the teams at the top half of the table, the “Happy one” would definitely put all resources as his disposal together to achieve this feat.

The boss who identified Athletico Madrid battling Midfielder Koke as an ideal midfield reinforcement could launch another bid after a failed bid during last summer transfer market.

The tough tackling midfielder who creates attack with his delightful passing is subject to a transfer to reigning English Champions. Koke has helped the Madrid team to win the La Liga, Copa Dey Rel as well as the Europa Cup.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, the Blues would offer well over his buy-out clause in order to test his resolve to leave the club. Chelsea desperatly needs quality in the team and Koke would bring his experience and quality to the Blues.

The 23-year old midfielder is also on the radar of Barcelona who wants a player to replace club legend Xavi Hernandez who joined Qatari side after last season.

Jose who has won trophies with all the teams he had managed is currently experiencing a new dimension in his career.

The coach was quoted when he said “this is the worst period of my career”. Chelsea would need all 3 points against struggling Aston Villa if they are to get their season going.
