Mourinho tells £120M star how he can secure dream move to Chelsea
Jose Mourinho has told Chelsea target Victor Osimhen what he must start doing in order to secure a dream move to the Premier League.
It is no secret that the club are still in need of adding another striker to the attack – and were heavily linked with a move for Osimhen in the summer – but failed to make a move as they did not want to pay his massive £120 million asking price
However – there is no doubt that Graham Potter still wants to add to his attack at the end of the season and many media outlets believe that they could reignite their interest in Osimhen.
Now – amid all the speculation – former boss Jose Mourinho has told the Napoli star what he needs to do to get that dream move to the Premier League – As quoted by Goal, the former Blues boss said: “He is of the same level as Drogba, but Didier didn’t dive. If Victor changes, then OK.
“I’d buy him if I was at a club with a lot of money. However, if he does go to England one day, he needs to change, because in Italy they put up with this sort of behaviour, whereas in the Premier League, they’d come down hard on him.”
Mourinho continued by revealing what he said to Osimhen when they crossed paths in Naples. He said: “I told him that he scored a wonderful goal and needs to stop diving so much. His goal was fantastic, he did the same thing when we met earlier this season, so he’s a fantastic player. But he mustn’t dive.”
But we are not so sure that the Premier League is the place for him to be right now as he does not have the proven goal-scoring ability to compete against the best defenders.
And the money that is being talked about is crazy – far too much for even a super-rich club like Chelsea to splash – they would be crazy guys
