ITK – Mourinho Interest In Chelsea Star Could Peak In January
By Harry Hotspur -

Mourinho’s strategy at Tottenham has been painfully straightforward; to identify the positional shortcomings in the squad, as well as address the issue of a mentality that had crept into Tottenham – that it was okay to lose. There are many great scenes in the US Office, but a pertinent one here is where Michael stands up in front of his staff and shouts, ‘I declare bankruptcy!’ Shortly afterwards, Oscar takes him to one side and confides to him that that isn’t quite how the process works.

At Spurs, talking about philosophies and committing to pushing onwards amounts to nothing. actions speak louder than words. Beating Manchester United and Manchester City in the same season with a goal difference of 9 is proof of a committent to change.

A source close to the club believes that José Mourinho has significant interest in Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud. Whilst Carlos Vinicius is still acclimatising to life in North London, there are doubts about the Benfica boy’s long term future at Spurs – who is currently with us on a season long loan.

Giroud would be a no-nonsense appointment who would suit the new and improved Tottenham, plus the Frenchman is bound to be concerned about playing time in the build up to the Euros.

I take a view that this would be another great signing, despite all the baggage.

Giroud?!! Eh? What? An average has been? And Vin’s only been here 5 minutes, and he’s got one hell of a set of forwards to nudge aside. No wonder he’s hardly played.

Even if this is true, it looks silly.

I am not doubting you H but are they really wondering about the future of Vinicius? I hope not.

Just can’t see Chelsea doing business with us, end of. Though Giroud would certainly be a useful back up option considering his PL pedigree.

Not happening, especially with a certain Russian in charge of one club.

I think he would play less for Tottenham than Chelsea. Chelsea don’t have a ‘genuine’ centre forward – a real number 9 – so he will be crucial to them. What’s more I really can’t see Chelsea selling to a direct rival

Giroud 13 goals in 62 PL games for Chelsea and now 34 years old, Fulham,West Ham,C Palace would be more suited,or maybe Beckham’s soccer team in America. I think in the summer someone suggested we should also sign an ageing Willian.

Giroud’s concern is his playing time with the Euros coming up next summer.Why do you think he would get more switching to us?Not that Chelsea would let him come to us,but the move doesn’t change his situation.
He would be better going to a club that finds goals hard to come by.Fulham,Newcatle,Sheffield Utd.,West Brom and Arsenal spring to mind.

I don’t think Chelsea would help strengthen our title challenge under any circumstances, even including Giroud. Besides which, if there is any money to be invested in the team in January, CB is likely to be a far more pressing position of need.

Yep, I opened this article assuming it was to be about Rudiger
