Real Madrid winger Leon: Mourinho blocked me joining Chelsea

Real Madrid winger Pedro Leon is angry he was blocked from moving to Chelsea by coach Jose Mourinho.

Former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti wanted to sign the midfielder but the Special One refused to let Leon go — even though he was out of favour at the Bernabeu.

Leon, now on loan at Getafe, said: "The club communicated Chelsea's interest to me.

"Chelsea is one of the great teams in Europe and of course it makes you feel great. But the manager told me he was not letting me go.

"He said I was going to play very little at Chelsea. I replied that the manager of Chelsea was Ancelotti and not himself."
