The Football Family has been reliably informed this afternoon that Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho will be flying into London on Sunday to finalise his move back to Chelsea.
The ‘Special One’ will be departing Spain after this Saturday’s final home game vs Osasuna, with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez announcing he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.
Mourinho was highly regarded in his time at Stamford Bridge, where he spent four years with the club leading them to numerous Premier League titles and domestic cups to the adoring Blues fanbase.
At 50, the Portuguese manager has won an amazing amount of silverware across many of the Europe’s top leagues, although his relationship with England, and the media, has always been something Mourinho has touched upon in interviews, and stated his aspiration was to move back to the Premier League in the near future.
He has kept his house in London since his departure in 2007, and informed current tenants in March, that he would be returing to England.
Various media outlets have confirmed he will pen a four year contract, worth £10 million a year, although i haven’t had confirmation he has officially signed, with this taking place early next week, once he touches down in London on Sunday.
