Report: Mourinho to Return to Stamford Bridge...with Ronaldo

MOST COMMENTED

According to UK paper The Express, Chelsea interim coach Rafael Benitez has been telling his friends that even if the Blues win the FA Cup and Europa League, he has no future at the club because Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is in advanced talks to return to Stamford Bridge. The report claims further that Mourinho wants to bring Real forward Cristiano Ronaldo for around $91 million. 

Apparently, relations between owner Roman Abramovich and Mourinho have healed to the point where the Russian oligarch is prepared to welcome the Portuguese back “with the cheque book open,” the Express says, adding that had Real lost its round-of-16 series with Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League, then Mourinho would have left sooner, but with Los Blancos in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and the semifinal of the Copa del Rey, he will remain at the Bernabeu until the end of the season. 

The Mourinho-and-Ronaldo-to-Chelsea report follows another story from The Express claiming that the “Special One” is lining up Chelsea legend Frank Lampard for a coaching role on his return to London.
