Chelsea Transfer round-up : Mourinho to bring back ‘unsettled’ Modric to Stamford Bridge

Asif Khan / 19 January 2015

Several reports in Spain suggests that Chelsea can bring back former Spurs player Modric back to the Premier League, since Luka’s wife – Vanja is unable to settle in Madrid .

“Modric is the engine of Real Madrid, but the problem it is his wife who did not fit into Madrid in Spain.” said FIFA agent Francois Gallardo according to The Express.

Chelsea’s boss Jose Mourinho is already an admirer of the Croatian who he managed during his time at Real Madrid.

Another report by the Express suggests that the Blues are ahead of Liverpool and Arsenal to sign Real Madrid Alvaro Arbeloa.

The report says that the Real Madrid star is looking for a new challenge and will have to choose between these 3 Premier League giants.Blue’s Manager Mourinho has a good relationship with the 32 year old player but where he will fit in Chelsea’s line-up is hard to understand.

The Express also reported that Chelsea is going to make a quick £30m bid for Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi. The 21 year old is reported to leave San Siro by summer as the Milan is struggling to keep their key player due to UEFA’s FFP rules.

The Italian giants are unlikely to qualify for the next season Champions League and Inter will therefore sell some of their star player to raise the required funds. “Without the Champions League, some sales may be inevitable.” as Marco Fassone sporting director of Inter Milan told the press.

Chelsea is ready to pay £35million for a double deal to sign Real Madrid’s Jese Rodriguez and Raphael Varane.

Former Real Madrid’s manager Moruniho is planning a move to sign the pair and bring them to Stamford Bridge who has played under the Portuguese during his time at Madrid.

The Daily Express reported, Moruinho is set to offer £15million for Rodriguez and £20million for Varane. Both the players are not a regular in the first team of Real Madrid but will be playing as key players for the Blues squad in the upcoming closing stages of the Premier League season.
