Moussa Sissoko seems to be at it again, and trying to drum up some interest in him from some big clubs, presumably so they will come in and sign him from Newcastle United.
In the past he’s said he just couldn’t resist the chance to go to PSG – his home town club – if that opportunity ever came along – and now he says he couldn’t resist the chance to play for Jose Mourinho at Chelsea – if that chance ever came about.

Newcastle will not want to part with one of our best players this summer, but that hasn’t stopped the French International from mentioning he thinks Chelsea are watching his progress on Tyneside.
He’s been talking to French outlet RMC – again:
“Is he (Jose Mourinho) following my progress? According to what I am hearing, yes,” . “He is one of the best managers in the world. He has won so many titles… Any player would love to be coached by this man. “
“For the moment, I am coached by other people (John Carver). If one day I have the chance to work under his guidance, I would be very happy. For the moment, I am still at Newcastle and I feel good over there. “
“After that, you can never be sure about what is going to happen. If I am to move, the French national team will be part of my thinking.”
“I will make the right choice. “Champions League football? All players dream of playing in this competition.”
“I hope to participate in it one day. I am patient. I am waiting for my time.” “I am enjoying myself in the English league.”
“I spent some very nice years at Toulouse. When I arrived in England, I started to live something different.”
“It is a league that suits me very well. I love everything over there. I can see myself finishing my career in England because it suits my style of play.”
With former Newcastle striker Loic Remy now at Chelsea, we wonder if the information he’s getting is coming from the French International striker at Stamford Bridge?
Or maybe Moussa’s just making it up – or has even been dreaming about this stuff?
We’d be very surprised if a club will come in and offer Mike Ashley what he wants this summer for Sissoko, because the 25 year-old didn’t play very well in the second half of the season, after Alan Pardew left the club.
We expect Moussa to be at Newcastle come September – even if he is still dreaming of bigger clubs to join.
