Chelsea star Willian is Michael Jackson’s fan

Chelsea midfielder Willian says he is a big fan of  Michael Jackson and love theatre very much. He takes his culture to his new home city.

Indeed, the Brazilian has admitted he’s become slightly obsessed with the West End over the past few months, having paid to see the Michael Jackson “Thriller” musical production more times than is probably necessary since he arrived in London in 2013.

“The first time I went to a musical in London I loved it, Now whenever I have free time I go. I’ve seen ‘Thriller Live’ more than 10 times. I like dancing a lot, and I’ve never seen anyone as good as Michael Jackson.” Willian told The Sun.1

Someone should really put Willian in touch with Sergio Ramos, a man who has a silhouette of Smooth Criminal-era Jacko indelibly tattooed about his person.

Better/worse yet, former Fulham chairman Mohamed Al Fayed was so enamoured with the King of Pop that he had a huge statue of the man plonked right outside Craven Cottage after Jackson forged an eternal bond with the club by visiting their ground once in 1999.

They could all get together and start a little fan club; dressing up, working out dance routines and the like.

Wouldn’t that be nice?

Chelsea chasing former United starlet Pogba

Paul-Pogba

Chelsea and Manchester United are being tipped to battle it out for the capture of Paul Pogba, but PSG and Real Madrid are also monitoring the situation should Juventus opt to cash in during this or the summer transfer window.

According to the Daily Express, Chelsea have beaten Manchester United to many players over recent years: Arjen Robben, Damien Duff, Michael Essien, John Obi Mikel to name a few — and they look set to rub more salt into the wound by launching a 40-million-pound bid for former Old Trafford prodigy Paul Pogba.

The paper reports that Jose Mourinho’s side are after the Juventus midfielder, and are willing to offer a cash-plus-player(s) deal, with the likes of Andre Schurrle, Ramires and Mikel in the firing line.

Any enquiry for Pogba would likely lead to a bidding war across the continent, though Chelsea have shown in recent months that they are adept at landing their targets early and with a minimum of fuss. Europe, you have been warned.
