Jose Mourinho’s long awaited return to Chelsea has arrived, after the former Blues man signed a four-year contract agreement worth £40m, reports The
It had been reported on a regular basis towards the end of the season that Mourinho would come back to Stamford Bridge as manager, following a disappointing last season with Real Madrid.
But this weekend the Portuguese was in London agreeing the lucrative deal that sees him reunited with Blues owner Roman Abramovich.
A senior Chelsea source told The Sun: “It’s official – Jose is a Chelsea man again! Everyone is delighted he’s coming back – the club, the players and the fans. We are already looking forward to next season – we are sure it’s going to be very exciting.”
Mourinho’s first spell at Chelsea was between 2004-2008, a period which saw him win the Premier League twice, the League Cup twice, the FA Cup, and the European Super Cup. His failure to bring Champions League success, despite two semi-final appearances, led to his dismissal.
