Chelsea boss Mourinho considering a move to sign Ghana midfielder Muntari as Lampard replacement

Published on: 29 May 2014
Chelsea targeting Muntari

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has been linked with a surprise return to England to giants Chelsea, according to rumours in the Italian press. 

Chelsea are set to part ways with legend Frank Lampard as the English star is set to join newly-promoted QPR and Mourinho sees Muntari as the best replacement for Lampard.

Muntari worked under Mourinho during his spell at Inter Milan and won the Uefa Champions League with him.

While the Ghana star is not enjoying regular action at AC Milan, Mourinho feels the 29-year-old is being under-used at the San Siro and would bring him in to the Stamford Bridge after the 2014 World Cup.

    Muntari would fit Chelsea because his style of play is very similar to lampards. Both of their passing and dead ball abilities are good. Their aggression in tackles are also similar. But like what ppl have said already, he will not be used. It will be a bad move for sulley even if the unlikely did happen and an offer was made

    I believe this to be a lie. Even when Maurinho was coaching Inter Milan and Muntari was much younger, faster and energetic, he was often on the bench. He would rather use Thiago. Now Muntari is old and slow and I know Maurinho doesn't need him. Same way he doesn't need the bison (Essien) anymore.

    This can't be true. When muntari even played for mourinho in inter, he was always on the bench. He only came on in the injury time in the champions league final.those where his youthful days. So if he couldn't pls mourinho in those days how much more could he pls him in his old age. And at the time Chelsea has so many talented youthful players. I don't believe this.

    Some people are born to get as many opportunies as there could be. I just hope this is true . This will be good for Muntari with Ghana benefiting the more. Go for it my brother!
