ROMAN ABRAMOVICH has told Jose Mourinho he will NOT pay the £17million get-out clause in his Real Madrid contract.
Well if he wants him he needs to pay, there's a reason Madrid made it so high.
Abramovich won't. Mourinho wants out and Madrid want rid. They will come to a settlement after a small amount of dancing around the issue I am sure.
So I guess it's Mancini to Chelsea, then? j/k Seriously, Chelsea need a long-term manager, not a mercenary. Mourinho is probably the best short-term manager, but he'll most likely jump ship again after 3-4 years. Then, Chelsea would be forced to rebuild again. More than anything, Abramovic needs patience.
Mourinho is leaving where? Is the question.
I don't know why, but I feel like it's different this time. I actually think Mourinho would settle.
Too much money to settle.
Overpayed, overhyped. Put a numpty in charge with a good amount to spend on players and most could do well. Plenty of decent managers around for a lot less and with a good budget for a team could win big.
Im sure City owner Al Nahyan is readying his wallet right about now after hearing this news.
