Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who’s currently the manager of Manchester United, was linked with Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic and Willian in the summer, but the manager has recently given hint that he can’t sign players from Chelsea.
While taking a dig at Bayern Munich for buying players from Borussia Dortmund, and weakening them in the process, he also revealed that he can’t do so in the Premier League.
“I cannot go to Chelsea and bring two of the players that I love very, very much. That time is over,” he said.
“That time is over so the situation of starting being champion by attacking your direct opponents in this country is over. It is over and if you get a player from these clubs, you get a player that club does not want to keep.
“You cannot hurt any more your direct opponents.”
