Real manager Mourinho in contact with Abramovich over Chelsea return
Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly been in regular contact with his former employer Roman Abramovich. It is believed the Russian billionaire owner of Chelsea secretly desires Jose Mourinho’s return at Stamford Bridge.
Roman Abramovich won’t have to fight or rain money on Jose Mourinho to convince him to return to Chelsea. The Portuguese is tired of his life at Real Madrid and is expected to leave the La Liga champions this summer.
According to media reports, Jose Mourinho has been sending text messages to Roman Abramovich on a regular basis. Some suggest Jose Mourinho is fishing for the Chelsea job, but the fact of the matter is that it’s Roman Abramovich who is desperate to bring in the world class manager.
The Daily Star has revealed that Roman Abramovich has been using Jose Mourinho as an unofficial football consultant for years now. Therefore, Jose Mourinho has probably had a hand behind the decisions at the club after his Chelsea exit.
The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is hopeful of returning to the English Premier League. The only possible position for Jose Mourinho in the Premier League will be at Chelsea, who will lose interim manager Rafael Benitez during the summer transfer window.
Last season, Jose Mourinho hinted that the 2012-13 season might be his last with Real Madrid. The former Inter Milan manager is apparently tired of the conflicts with the administration and the disagreements between members of his first-team.
Jose Mourinho has been “dropping hints” about a return to Chelsea since last year. However, Roman Abramovich might have to wait a bit for the return of the prodigal son as Jose Mourinho has a binding contract with Real Madrid.
Presently, the former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is reigning over Chelsea, but he will be asked to step down in July. Jose Mourinho has apparently restored his relationship with Roman Abramovich to full health after falling out of favor in 2007. Back then Jose Mourinho left Chelsea with mutual understanding between him and the club.
Jose Mourinho is undoubtedly Chelsea’s most successful and popular manager in history. The Portuguese enjoyed a massive support at the London club and is still considered to be a hero inside Chelsea circles.
