Midfielder set for Chelsea return: Jose Mourinho is crazy about him


On-loan Chelsea midfielder Bertrand Traore could be part of Jose Mourinho's squad next season, Vitesse coach Peter Bosz said.

The youngster joined Vitesse during the 2014 January transfer window, extending his loan spell for one full season last summer.

But Bosz believes he will return to Stamford Bridge this summer.

"Mourinho is crazy about him," Bosz told De Telegraaf.

"If the opportunity is there, they will prefer to take him back."

The 19-year-old says he is "not afraid" to fight for a regular place a Chelsea.

“Chelsea are very happy with my development. But I will only hear what is next in the summer,” he said.

“I’m ready when the opportunity comes and I'm not afraid to show my ability at Chelsea.

“This has been the first time I have played a full season in professional football. I've taken a huge step forward physically."
