Chelsea have been chasing Kalidou Koulibaly for the most part of the transfer window and still have not reached anywhere with it. With the chances of signing the Napoli defender diminished, the Blues have now shifted their focus towards another Italian League defender Nikola Maksimovic from Torino.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Serbian is a handful. The report from Italian media states that the player has gone missing from training sessions without any notice. Obviously, the Torino manager Sinisa Mihajlovic is furious and has hit out on the player about his behavior.
Speaking to the media Mihajlovic has issued warning to the player and has spoken about the uncertainty that surrounds the player’s future. It is natural that a manager will lose his cool if a player does not turn up for his training session. Surprising thing is that Chelsea seems to be tracking the player. Is that a good idea? Well judge it for yourself but here is what the Torino manager had to say,
“I don’t know whether Maksimovic is making a mistake of his accord or whether he’s being ill-advised, and frankly, I don’t give a damn. He’ll pay the consequences of this behaviour. We suffered damages that will be evaluated by the club.
“Now it’s the club’s move because Maksimovic has a contract and he can’t decide his destiny all by himself. If he chooses to stay, then he’ll have to regain my faith twice: as a man, and then as a footballer.”
