In the news today:
Chelsea’s new £26m capture, Juan Mata, has been speaking to ESPN about the reasons why he was so keen to join the blues, in favour of a move to Tottenham or Arsenal.
He said: “I want to come to England to win trophies – and that’s why I accepted Chelsea’s offer. It was also a question of sporting achievement, not money.
“Arsenal and Tottenham were both interested in me but they did not compare with the Blues. I want the Premier League title and this is possible at Chelsea.”
He went on to discuss his good friend, Fernando Torres and the influence that the Spaniard had on his decision. He said: “Fernando Torres helped influence my decision but speaking directly with Villas-Boas was the decisive factor. He explained how his style will be based on 4-3-3 and how important I will be to his plans.
“Frank Lampard is a monster of a footballer to play alongside and the prospect of that is incredible.”
Is this yet another sign that Arsenal are no longer in the same calibre as Chelsea?
