According to SunSport, Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is set for a third return to Chelsea.
The Portuguese has also been linked with a move to Newcastle.
The 56-year-old won three English Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup during two spells at the West London club.
Chelsea is in the market for Maurizio Sarri’s successor at Stamford Bridge. The Blues have agreed to release Sarri so that he can take the Juventus managerial duty.
Mourinho while speaking with BeIN SPORTS in March said, “What I have in mind is that I would like to be back in the summer, in June, for a new club, for a new pre-season.”
“I know exactly what I don’t want.”
“That’s the reason why I had to say already to three or four different offers. I had to say no.”
“And I know what I want, in terms of not a specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job, I know what I want.”
