Remy: Mourinho Made Me Reject Arsenal

Loic Remy has revealed that a conversation with Jose Mourinho convinced him to join Chelsea over Arsenal.

The French striker came close to sealing a move to Liverpool before they dramatically pulled out of the deal after his medical.

And with time running out before the transfer window shut Chelsea made their move and agreed to pay QPR’s £8m release fee – prompting the Gunners to make a late attempt to hijack the transfer.

“I spoke with him (Mourinho),” Remy told the Express.
