The Sunday Times’ Jonathan Northcroft thinks Jose Mourinho wanted Paul Pogba to join Chelsea this summer…

He told Sunday Supplement: “Yes, he hasn’t got what he wanted. I think he wanted Pogba at the start of the summer, that was one he pushed for. And obviously he wanted Stones.

“The decline of certain players has probably shocked him. People like Fabregas, Matic, Ivanovic in particular, and then somebody like John Terry going over that hill defenders go over. I think he’s been spooked by that.

“It’s typical Mourinho behaviour to show signs of rebellion when things aren’t going his way.”
