The report is according to Spanish newspaper Sport which claims the billionaire owner Roman Abrahamovic has given the deal makers of the his club the go-ahead to make the bid for the player following their disastrous start to this campaign.
For over 20 years, this is Chelsea’s worst start – they have suffered three defeats in five matches, conceding 11 goals, and currently lye 11 points adrift League leaders Manchester city. The possibility of Chelsea retaining the title has been ruled out by pundits and fans.
Having being the club with the most conceded goals in the Premier League thus far, Mourinho has obviously made the strengthening of his defense line his major priority upon the open of the January transfer window.
