Whoever has started this game let me tell you it’s funny. In the Spanish daily Sport on Tuesday, it was published that Jose Mourinho has enquired about Barcelona goal keeper Victor Valdes.
For no reason why, it has been mentioned in the article that Petr Cesch’s future is unclear at Stamford Bridge and that’s why the Portuguese is looking for his replacement.
Valdes, who is almost-certain-unofficially to leave the club after his contract expires in the summer, is reportedly the number one target of the Chelsea manager, as per the report.
Now, here comes the response from the Spanish press. El Mundo Deportivo has featured Petr Cech on their front cover, linking him with La Liga champions Barcelona. It says Cech is Barcelona’s first choice candidate for the post, should Valdes leave the club next summer.
Their argument is, youngster Thibaut Courtois will be more than ready to take the place of Cech for the London giants, which will put him on the market after 2013-14.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter has admitted that awarding the 2022 World Cup to Qatar may well be a mistake made by them and the tournament could be switched to winter to avoid the searing summer heat.
