Jose Mourinho has named his price to return to the Premier League – a £20million-a-year salary and a transfer budget of £150m.
Only City and Chelsea are stupid enough to invest that kind of money on a yearly basis. If Maureen wants a real challenge, he should try to win titles without spending obscene amounts of money.
I was thinking the same thing. I can't see any other teams offering that kind of salary and transfer budget. I hope Chelsea isn't one of those teams though. As much as I like Mourinho, I think Ancelotti can be just as good. Providing the club can stop hindering him by doing stupid stuff like removing the assistant manager partway through the season.
Ancelotti is a great manager. Abramovich needs to stop interfering so much with his managers' work. I have a nagging feeling that buying Torres for £50m wasn't part of Ancelotti's plans. He seems more like a clever manager who prefers to buy young players like David Luiz, rather than gambling a huge load of money on big-names.
