To be fair to them, many Arsenal fans would have liked Arsene Wenger to do exactly the same thing to our Premier League rivals that Jose Mourinho has been doing to the Gunners since he came skulking back to Chelsea from La Liga where he failed in his objective of stopping the dominance of Barcelona or winning Real Madrid a 10th European cup.
As reported by Goal.com, the Chelsea boss has stepped in once again, just as he did with our loan deal for Demba Ba, to put a stop to any chance of his second choice keeper Petr Cech coming to play for the Gunners.
It had previously been reported that Chelsea would reward the Czech Republic international’s years of service by allowing him a say in where he would go next. And maybe they have, as long as he does not choose Arsenal. The report claims that an Arsenal source has explained that Chelsea have told us not to waste our time this summer, which I suppose is better than leaving it to the last minute.
Mourinho has allowed Juan Mata to go to Man United when they were no threat and I assume he felt the same about Lukaku to Everton and loaning Victor Moses to Liverpool, so is this further proof that he sees Arsenal as serious challengers to his club? Or is it simply that he does not like Arsene Wenger?
