Will Mourinho Bring Over A Couple Of Allies From Madrid?
With Jose Mourinho taking over the reigns at Stamford Bridge, William Hill are looking forward to seeing who the Special One ships in and ships out at Chelsea this summer.
Chelsea and Mourinho have both long admired Hulk and with rumours that the Brazilian is unsettled in Russia, he is 5/1 to join the second Special One Revolution this summer.
Mourinho finally managed to get his man for Madrid last summer when he signed Luka Modric and the Croatian is 9/2 to follow his former manager back to London while Cristiano Ronaldo is 4/1 to join Chelsea this summer.
"Mourinho definitely has his favourites and he will likely bring over a couple of allies to Chelsea," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "Could Ronaldo and Modric be those allies? One thing is certain however, Casillas will not be."
There are a number of players that could make way for Mourinho's chosen players and Dacid Luiz is 8/11 to move during the transfer window, Demba Ba is 7/4 and Fernando Torres 13/8.
There are still four survivors at Chelsea from Jose Mourinho's first ever starting XI. Of the four, Petr Cech is 1/20 to start Chelsea's first Premier League game of next season with Frank Lampard 4/6, John Terry 8/13 and Michael Essien 7/4.
