Spanish magazine Marca think Glen Johnson will be a top summer target for Mourinho.
Although Jose Mourinho has repeatedly refused to publicly confirm its continuity at Real Madrid next year - "I have two years left on his contract and I have nothing to answer questions that make no sense," he said last Friday, The club plans to target the next season under the designs of the Portuguese, in addition to first team coach, is also general manager of the club.
As development marks before last Christmas, the priority is to strengthen Mourinho the right side. When the Portuguese arrived at Real Madrid wanted to sign a '2 'although Sergio Ramos then seemed indisputable in that position. The Brazilian Maicon, with which he was champion of Europe with Inter, was chosen. Mourinho Florentino pressed to make an extra effort by the defense of New Hamburg, but found that when the white president seemed willing to take the final step, Maicon up their requests.
Therefore, and because their performance is down, when not long ago the name has come back Maicon on market movements, Mourinho did not want to know anything about it.
When put on the table options to the right side there is a name that follows Mourinho: English Glen Johnson. Little remains of the defense that did not quite convince Mou in London.
Johnson, who turns 28 in August, agreed with Mourinho at Chelsea. He had enough presence in the 2004-05 season (28 games, six of them in the Champions League), but then lost weight Mourinho plans while Paulo Ferreira became the owner the right side.
Chelsea went to Portsmouth, where he played 99 games and showed the level that had led him to Stamford Bridge from West Ham United. On June 22, 2009, at the request of Rafa Benitez, the Liverpool disbursed 18 million pounds to become Anfield team player.
Johnson is in love with Spain and more than once expressed his desire to someday play in our league. Has long had a house in Andalusia and defended quite well when he has to dip into the Castilian, something you do often with Pepe Reina.
Another advantage is its character. The Liverpool side has nothing to do with the classic image of English football, so tight that suffers a lot when you leave your country, that few succeed away from the islands. Within the Liverpool dressing room, is the Latin of the English players. Today, Johnson's defense is much left out of Mourinho's Chelsea in the summer of 2006.
Johnson is not the only option on the technical working of the white team to strengthen the right side. Within the Premier's another '2 'which follows, ND Walker, Tottenham defender dexter, which debuted for his country against Spain on 12 November.
Moreover, in the White House is paying special attention to young talents are sprouting in the German teams.
Who is Madrids right back anyway?
