According to the Daily Express here, Jose Mourinho has recently been in contact with Roman Abramovich and some of the senior Chelsea players from his time at the club and has been "dropping hints" that he is ready to return to Stamford Bridge in the Summer.
The report states as follows:
JOSE MOURINHO has sent text messages to Roman Abramovich to pave the way for a return to Chelsea.
Mourinho, set to leave Real Madrid after huge fall-outs with the club hierarchy and key players, is favourite to return as manager in the summer after Pep Guardiola joined Bayern Munich.
And Daily Express can reveal Mourinho has been in contact with owner Abramovich, senior Chelsea players and staff. A source close to Abramovich said: “Jose has been sending messages to people at the club. Not just to Roman, to everybody, dropping hints.”I would take Jose Mourinho back in a heartbeat and the fact that he is the bookies favourite to come back is heartening to say the least!.
What do you think about a possible return? Do you think he would come and would his appointment appease the fans castigated in certain quarters for their continued treatment of Rafa Benitez?
I believe that there IS substance in the story and I would love it if he came back. You would imagine he would have even more control at the club than he ever did before and would be quick to point out what has happened with the first team managerial position (which Martin is about to post on) since his departure.
I really hope he does come back!
