Chelsea boss Mourinho planning £20M bid for Everton dynamo Barkley

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is planning a January move for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

The People says Mourinho wants Chelsea to make a £20million January bid for Barkley – but has been told he must sell first if he wants to land a major mid-season purchase.

A move to Chelsea would put Barkley on a collision course with England boss Roy Hodgson, who sees him as a potential World Cup starter.

Hodgson is keen for the teenager to remain at the Toffees, where he is guaranteed first-team football.

David Moyes had been linked with a move to take Barkley to Manchester United, but it is understood that he has reservations about the player he used to manage at Everton.
