Reports: Mourinho, Ancelotti to Move Once La Liga Ends
Daily Star, May 23rd, 2013 1:26PM

TAGS:  england, real madrid, spain


According to reports in Spain and England, Real Madrid will unveil Carlo Ancelotti either on the last day of the La Liga season on June 2 or the day after, while Jose Mourinho will fly to London immediately after Real’s final home game against Osasuna on the 2nd to sign a four-year deal at Chelsea worth close to $380,000 per week, which is three times what he was paid when he first joined the club in 2004.

Real President Florentino Perez’s intention is to present Ancelotti as Real’s new coach alongside Zinedine Zidane, who will become part of the Italian’s backroom staff, Marca says. However, whereas Mourinho has been allowed to leave Madrid for free, it is still unclear whether Real will have to pay Paris Saint-Germain, Ancelotti’s current club, to release him from his current contract, which still has one year left.

In any event, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is prepared to commit close to $75 million for the second coming of "The Special One" at Stamford Bridge, the Daily Star reports. Accompanying Mourinho will be fitness coach Rui Faria and goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro. Contrary to other reports, the Star says there is no prospect of Cristiano Ronaldo joining Mourinho at Chelsea as the two have fallen out.
