Shaktar Donetsk midfielder Alex Texeira revealed to Brazilian media Lance! that his dream is to play in Chelsea under José Mourinho:
“What I saw and what my manager said was that Chelsea, Juventus and PSG made proposals.
“I’m glad to have received the proposal of Chelsea as they are a big club in Europe, but my manager will sort that.
“It’s my dream, I have spoken to many people who have the desire to play in the Premier League, because I think it’s the best World Championship, most competitive.
“For January, I believe it is very difficult because it is in the middle of the championship. Shakhtar has said they will not release me in January, only at the end of the season. But I’m with a clear head.
He concluded on Mourinho:
“I hope he does not leave Chelsea now. I want to work with him and have great success at his side.”
