As it seems now, Chelsea are bound to lose one of their primary targets for this transfer season to Monaco. It is being reported that Falcao has already made agreements with the big spending Ligue 1 side, highlighting the need for Mourinho to have a Plan B ready.
And as it looks Mourinho does have the Plan B at his disposal. He is now being tipped to sign Mario Gomez from Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich, who are all set to play the UEFA Champions League final tonight again league rivals Borussia Dortmund.Gomez to Chelsea?
Gomez, who joined Bayern from Stuttgart in 2009, has earned the respect of all the fans of Bundesliga with his showings on the field. He has been a prolific striker for his club and the ideal target man. He has a great physical presence on the field, which seems to be one of the determining factors for Mourinho to considering him for Chelsea, whose charge he is expected to take from the next season.
Gomez fears that if Bayern successfully convince Borussia to sell Robert Lewandowski, then he will slip to far down the pecking order and thus wants a fresh lease of life at Stamford Bridge. Ideally Bayern should quote a figure between £25-30m for him which Mourinho expects his boss Roman Abramovich to go ahead.
Gomez’s agent has also indicated that the current scenario of the club has made the star unhappy and he would consider moving out, provided a respectable offer comes at his direction.
If Gomez does move to Chelsea, it can be a defining moment for the club which lacked a powerful striker the most in this season. With their midfield as talented as it is, Chelsea will be a force to reckon with in the Premier League.
All our eyes will be glued to the news of Gomez’s next move once the transfer season starts.
