Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho could make a sensational return to Chelsea before the end of the month if his team fails to get past Manchester United in the Champions League.
The La Liga Champions are effectively out of the Spanish title race this season as they trail Barcelona by 13 points. Mourinho has also been subject to speculation that he has fallen out with several senior players in his squad.
Madrid are in the Copa del Rey final but if they were to be eliminated from the Champions League that may not be enough to save the Special One’s job.
He has made no secret of his desire to return to English football one day. The Daily Star reports that he has buried the hatchet with Roman Abramovic and the pair are in regular contact.
It would be a hugely popular appointment amongst Chelsea supporters who are desperate to see the back of Rafael Benitez.
