These days it seems to be a rare thing to see a Chelsea story abroad which isn’t related to where manager Jose Mourinho will go next, or when he might be sacked by the Blues. However, with these claims all over the news and after the 3-1 loss to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, things can not get any worse for the Portuguese manager.
Despite all these rumours flying around, Europe’s top scorer has now been linked with a move to the west London club. No, the speculations are not about Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich, who has 13 goals in 10 league games so far this term, with the best goal to game ratio at the moment.
The holder of this title at the moment is Shakhtar’s Brazilian attacking midfielder Alex Teixeira, who has netted 16 times in 11 games in the Ukrainian Premier League this term. The ex Vasco de Gama attacker is being linked with the Blues by various media outlets across the continent and spoke to GloboEsporte in Brazil recently about the interest by the Premier League champions.
He showed his intent of playing in England, which would be a boost for Chelsea, as he stated, “These are just speculations. I am very happy to know that a club like Chelsea are interested in me. It’s important to compete in a league like the Premier League. If it were for January, it would be excellent. It would be great to face a new challenge.”
