Much talked about striker admits ‘he’s chatted’ to Chelsea boss

Derby County striker Patrick Bamford hopes for a future with parent club Chelsea, according to the Guardian.

The much talked about striker has proven that he is able to play at a very level, after an impressive season at Derby.

And although there has been some big names linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer, Bamford admits he’s chatted with Blues boss Jose Mourinho about his future at the club.

He was quoted as saying: “The first thing he said to me was: ‘What do you want to do next season?’

“As quick as I could I said: ‘Play for Chelsea.’

“He said: ‘That’s good, at least you know what you want. We’ll see.’

“From what they’ve said, ideally I’ll be third striker, but you never know really in football.

“Hopefully I get a good pre-season, especially with the World Cup, because a lot of the big players are going to be away, so it’s going to give some of us youngsters the chance to get some game time to try and show him what we can do.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
