Chelsea defender shuts the door on a possible reunion with Jose Mourinho


Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma says a reunion with new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is unlikely.

The strong defender has been linked with a move to Old Trafford but he says his former boss is yet to make contact ahead of the summer transfer window.

"I do not think he will call me," he told MYTF1.

"I think there are other problems to solve but I'm fine at Chelsea."

Mourinho was full of praise for the 21-year-old when at Chelsea, saying that he could become the future captain of the club.

"[Kurt] Zouma is now 20 years old and one day he will be 23, 24 and a player with great maturity, probably even with leadership to replace John [Terry]," Mourinho told the club's official website in March.

"This season he is playing more than I expected, more than he expected and more than everyone expected so he is getting experience levels which are very important.

"I am not the French national coach and I respect Didier Deschamps totally, but I would not be surprised if Zouma gets his first cap, and then when he gets caps with France when he is playing with Chelsea at this level, his development will have an acceleration and in two or three years' time, even being very young, he will be a stable player."
