Chelsea manager Jose on deal of £35m worth of business with Eto'o and Atsu joining Willian at Chelsea

Chelsea finished the £32m deal signing of Willian last night after the Brazilian’s work permit was finally granted.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hopes to compensate for missing out on Wayne Rooney by signing Anzhi Makhachkala's Samuel Eto'o, 32, and FC Porto's Christian Atsu, 21.

Samuel-Eto-o-looks-set-to-complete-his-deal-to-Chelsea-and-reunite-with-manager-Jose-MourinhoA £10m one-year deal to bring striker Samuel Eto’o to Stamford Bridge is due to be finalised today, and Mourinho is also hoping to complete the £3.5m capture of Porto winger Christian Atsu.

It is a late burst of transfer spending that will take Chelsea’s tally of summer signings to six, at a cost of £64m.

With Rooney’s decision to stay at Manchester United confirmed yesterday, Chelsea accepted defeat in their summer-long pursuit of the England striker.
Eto’o’s agents were in London last night putting the finishing touches to a deal that will cost Chelsea about £4m, with the Cameroon striker earning about £6m. He is due to have a medical today, but will also need a work permit.

Eto’o, who will turn his back on an offer from his old club Inter Milan to team up with Mourinho once more at Chelsea, will also get bonuses for goals scored, appearances, and Champions League progress.

Willian, stolen from under Tottenham’s noses last Thursday in the transfer window’s most dramatic capture yet, completed his move last night and said: “It has been my dream to come here.
“When the offer came I never gave a thought to anybody else, I said I would run here. Chelsea was always my first choice.”

Those words will only further infuriate Spurs, who had carried out a medical on the 25-year old before the call came in last week from Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Willian, who scored twice against Chelsea last season in the Champions League, added: “It’s going to be a pleasure to work with Jose Mourinho and learn from him. He’s one of the best coaches in the world.

“He told me to work hard. He said we have a very strong team but when you work hard there are rewards.“My aim is to help Chelsea keep this winning mentality and to win as many trophies as we can.”
Chelsea, poised, Christian Atsu Chelsea deny the arrivals of Willian and Atsu mean Juan Mata will be on his way out, even though Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has publicly expressed his interest in the Spanish midfielder.

Mata is in the squad which will fly out to Prague today to prepare for tomorrow night’s UEFA Super Cup final against Bayern Munich.

Mourinho maintains Chelsea’s player of the year for the past two seasons has had so little time on the pitch simply because he is not fully fit, and David Luiz is also doubtful for tomorrow’s match.

Chelsea have agreed a £3.5m fee for Atsu, who flew into London last night to discuss terms. The 21-year-old is set to be loaned straight back to the Portuguese club for the season.
