Europa League champions and Champions League winners of 2011-2012 season Chelsea will go into this summer transfer window with a budget of $100 Millions if the rumours are to be beleived, One this is almost certain that they are bringing in Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge and with that we will have transfer marry go round at Chelsea this season but who are the most likeliest signings Jose Mourinho will make in already a very competitive squad.

Chelsea finised 3rd in the league behind two Manchester Clubs and they will have to turn up the heat at the start of the season if they want to be in the race for the League title next season with Manchester City getting bigger and better and of course Manchester United who are always there and there about. Here are a few players which Mourinho would like to get at Stamford Bridge.

Signings Completed: André Schürrle
Players Released: Yossi Benayoun, Paulo Ferreira, Florent Malouda, Ross Turnbull.
Needed: CB / striker

Transfer Targets:

  • Eliaquim Mangala (Porto)
  • Edinson Cavani (Napoli)
  • Luka Modric (Real Madrid)
  • Wayne Rooney (Man Utd)
  • Stevan Jovetic (Fiorentina)


Wayne Rooney transfer target1. Wayne Rooney | Man Utd
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has again requested for a transfer and with Robin Van Persie fully set at Old Trafford United might let him go this season and one of the clubs who are interested in Rooney is Chelsea, and Jose Mourinho is a big fan of him and if he is available they will snap him in a flash after all he is the best English player of his generation.

Ronaldo transfer target2. Cristiano Ronaldo | Real Madrid
Well thats a long shot but with Mourinho you never know what he has up his sleeves and for Ronaldo any club who can afford him paying around 100M is not a bad deal he is a global star and his signing can bring more money that you will spend on buying him. If he is available for sale Chelsea is one of the 3 clubs who can buy him others are Manchester City, Man Utd and PSG.

zlatan ibrahimovic transfer target4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic | PSG
Everybody knows that Zlatan have alot of praise for Mourinho, and he is kind of player who can flourish under the special one, and he is perfect player Chelsea need right now. If they can bring in Zlatan and with the kind of midfield they have they can easily challenge for the Champions League anad Premier League next season. although bringing Ibrahimovic to England is not an easy task.

4. Sami Khedira | Real Madrid
Since Jose is moving to bridge, he will try to bring in couple of players who played under him at Real madrid and one of the players who was by far the most consistant is German internation Sami Khedira and he is more realistic target than Ronaldo. Lampard is in the twilight of his career and Jon Obi Mikel can only pass side ways or backwards so they need one holding midfielder who can play some football as well and Sami fits the bill perfectly.

5. Mario Gomez | Bayern Munich
Chelsea lack a world class striker, yeah i know but Torres used to be a World Class striker and Chelsea can not risk going into the new season without a top marksman, Torres can play the Plan B role in forward line. One player who comes to mind is German International a proven goal scorer and since Bayern are getting Lewandowski Mourinho might have a go for Mari Gomez
