Interesting! I think he may sign with another club in January, PSG or Madrid as you mention. He'll then probably leave next summer. Bertrand is more than ready to step up.
I've not been too keen on the players mentioned as backup, Lulic and Assou-Ekotto are the two i've heard most about. I wonder if Coentrao could be an option, he seems to get played all over the pitch by Mourinho, i've seen him as a winger, left back, right back, defensive midfielder etc.. His already sparse playing time would be cut further if he was challenging against Cole AND Marcelo.
