Christian Benteke, the 22-year-old Congo international, has recently submitted a transfer request at Villa Park.
Currently, he is being chased by the Blues and Tottenham, but it seems Benteke does not consider that his future lies at Stamford Bridge.
The striker’s agent, Eris Kismet, went as far as claiming that the probability of his client signing for Chelsea is as good as signing for ‘Turkse Rangers’, an amateur seventh division Belgian team.
Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he is happy with the business done so far this season as he went on to remind everyone about the new signings- Andre Schurrle, Marco van Ginkel and Mark Schwarzer.
“Andre Schurrle is still so young but he already has great history because he plays in his national team. He has played Champions League and he played three complete seasons for Leverkusen,” Mourinho said.
“So he is a player who is absolutely ready and he gives us more than one position in attack and adds quality. He will be important for us.
“Marco van Ginkel is one of the best prospects. He is not yet like Schurrle – close to being a finished product – but he is a player with great potential.
“Mark Schwarzer is what we need. I never say this one is the first choice and this one is the second and this one is the third, but of course as a starting point Petr Cech is Petr Cech – he is the best in the world with deference to all the others and Mark knows that he comes to be an important member of the squad,” Mourinho signed off.
