Breaking News: Jose Mourinho departs Stamford Bridge for the second time

Roman Abramovich has confirmed that for a second time he has parted company with Mourinho after they did not have the same view on the upcoming transfer window as Abramovich has only made a limited amount of money available to the defending champions. Mourinho felt that with limited money he would be unable to retain the title and has therefore decided to leave by mutual consent.

Jose Mourinho proved to be the best manager to handle Chelsea as he managed to take The blues to another Premier League title. This comes as a shock as nobody ever expected him to leave for the second time in a row from a club he worships. Many fans and pundits are claiming that it is a Mourinho curse. Most of the times, Jose Mourinho has not stayed in many clubs for too long and when he has, he has not been sucessful. The image below is a record of Mourinhos' in various clubs. It hard to believe but the facts are suggesting its a THIRD SEASON CURSE.

Mourinho himself was unavailable for any comments on this and is no where to be seen but Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich held a sudden press conference and confirmed the news. He also confirmed that the new manager will be a familiar face at Stamford Bridge. He will be confirming the manager soon at a club press conference and is expecting the fans to have a good reactions.

Falcao in Chelsea Talks

Not long since the departure of Mourinho, Chelsea has been looking for a new permanent manager with Steve Holland covering for temporary basis.

Pep Guardiola might be the favorite to join Chelsea but it is Steve Holland who wants the first deal to be made in the transfer window in the terms of Rademel Falcao.

It is said that Falcao has agreed upon the personal terms and the one-year loan deal can be completed within few days.

Colombian striker joins Blues from Monaco on season-long loan

Chelsea have tied up the signature of Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan deal from Monaco.

The Colombia international has been heavily linked with a switch to the Blues in recent weeks after Manchester United opted against making his stay at Old Trafford a permanent one following his 2014/15 campaign at Old Trafford.

And now with his international commitments finished – he has been at the Copa America for the past few weeks – the 29-year-old has officially put pen to paper with the reigning Premier League champions.
Falcao said: “I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe.”

Falcao endured a nightmare campaign with United last term, notching only four goals in all competitions.
A serious knee injury suffered in his brief spell in the Monaco first-team stunted his pre-season preparations and was a major talking point through the early months of the campaign.

A back-up role at Stamford Bridge is likely to await Falcao, who appears to be a replacement for released veteran Didier Drogba – Diego Costa and Loic Remy are already in West London.

Arsenal confirm signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Petr Cech from Chelsea for around £10m.

The 33-year-old, who has signed what Arsenal describe as a "long-term contract", made more than 400 appearances in 11 years for the Blues. He decided to leave Stamford Bridge after losing his first-team spot to Thibaut Courtois.

He won four Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League, four FA Cups and three League Cup trophies with Chelsea.


Asmir Begovic: Chelsea sign goalkeeper from Stoke City

Chelsea have signed goalkeeper Asmir Begovic from Premier League rivals Stoke City for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £8m.The Bosnia-Hercegovina international joins Chelsea on a four-year deal.
Begovic, who will challenge Thibaut Courtois for the main goalkeeper role, will take the number one shirt left vacant following the sale of Petr Cech to Arsenal.


Reports are coming in that Carlo Ancelotti, Simone and Pep Guardiola have been shortlisted to be the new face as the Head Coach for the Blues.

Roman Abramovich, the Chelsea owner, is very much encouraged to try for a second time to convince Diego Simone to accept the job as manager at Stamford Bridge. Pep Guardiola is already rumored to the favorite to succeed Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti, the former Chelsea boss, is already in the good books of Chelsea fans and might be on board for his second innings at the bridge.

The question on every fans' lips is who is it going to be the new face to succeed Jose Mourinho? Can he sustain the pressure or perish under it?

Holland recently signed three new players, Radamel Falcao and Asamir Begovic and Rahman Baba and is looking for the fourth target English Centre Back John Stones from Everton. Mourinho had been scouting this players since last year and Holland might bring this scouted player in to join his England team-mate Gary Cahill.
