Reports Claim Mourinho-Chelsea Reunion Imminent

MOST COMMENTED

Jose Mourinho wants to return to Chelsea, Chelsea wants the "Special One" back at Stamford Bridge, and the reunion could be sooner than anyone expected. That’s what England’s back pages reported on Monday after both Chelsea and Real Madrid slumped to defeats over the weekend in the Premier League and La Liga, respectively. Chelsea lost to a Moussa Sissoko-inspired Newcastle, 3-2, while Real looked poor in its 1-0 defeat away to Granada, which came courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo own goal.

The results left both clubs possibly wanting a coaching change sooner rather than later, according to reports. “All the Special One is waiting for is the call from Blues’ billionaire owner Roman Abramovich, who is desperately seeking a new manager,” says The Sun. Other reports claim that Abramovich will fire interim coach Rafael Benitez if the Blues do not beat Wigan at home this weekend.

The irony, Eurosport points out, is that with just one win in its last six games in all competitions, Chelsea might welcome one of Abramovich’s quickfire coaching changes right now, especially when you consider the large number of Blues fans that never accepted Benitez as the club’s manager in the first place.

However, The Daily Mail says negotiations with Mourinho are preliminary and Chelsea would only sign him at the end of the season: “Chelsea have started the process of negotiation with Jose Mourinho about his potential availability in the summer and his desire to return to Stamford Bridge.”
