Are Chelsea Courting Kurt?
With Nemanja Matic having been signed, I suspect that our January transfer window signings may well be complete.
I may be wrong though, it has been known to be the case (many times) I might add.
If I have assessed the situation wrongly, perhaps one of the possible incomings could be the Saint Etienne centre back Kurt Zouma.
It would appear, if the press are correct, Mourinho has made personal contact with the 19 year old with the player remarking to the media,
"I thought it was a wind-up at first but I soon took it seriously."
"It`s a real pleasure that a great man like Jose Mourinho chooses to phone a young player like Kurt Zouma."
"Something like that doesn`t happen every day."
I`d imagine the youngster was taken aback.
It`s intimated that Zouma will be leaving Saint Etienne in the summer with the player adding,
"I have a deal with Saint Etienne that lets me leave in June."
"But if they tell me to go to Chelsea I will go straight away - particularly now the manager has called me. Besides, blue is my favourite colour,"
Interestingly, Zouma is currently suspended with the six feet three inches tall defender serving a 10 game ban for a tackle that broke an opponent`s leg.
The lad seems quite a character!
