Chelsea morning news: Blues favourites to land teenage Portugal starlet?

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea are one of several Premier League sides thought to be interested in Portugal star Carlos Mane.

Chelsea are thought to be tracking the Sporting Lisbon player along with both Manchester clubs and Liverpool from England.

The under-19 winger could spark a bidding war over his transfer this summer.

Jose Mourinho has suggested it could take Mohamed Salah six months to have an impact in the Chelsea first team.

The Egyptian made just his second appearance in the FA Cup defeat at Manchester City last weekend, producing an underwhelming performance.

“So I think Mohamed needs six months to adapt to our game and the demands of the Premier League,” Mourinho told the Daily Star.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed he’s happy playing under manager Jose Mourinho.

The Brazilian centre back has been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge regularly, with the perception that his playing style doesn’t fit Mourinho’s ethos for the team.

“I'm a guy with an open heart. I want to learn every day. I'm happy with this, I'm happy when I can play for a big club and have an opportunity to work with a good coach,” he told the press.
