Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has refused to rule out a sensational return to Chelsea.
The 48-year-old was ruthlessly sacked by Blues’ owner Roman Abramovich in September 2007, following a poor start to the season.
With pressure mounting on current boss Carlo Ancelotti, there has been a growing clamour from fans to see Mourinho return.
Chelsea’s season under Ancelotti has deteriorated, with the Champions League being the only realistic silverware left on offer – a trophy Chelsea has never won.
Mourinho has won it twice and the European Cup is still the competition Abramovich wants above all the others.
Under the Portuguese’s guidance, Chelsea won back-to-back league titles, two league cups and an FA Cup in the three years at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho still has three years left on his Real Madrid contract but admits you can not rule anything out in football.
Asked if he would see out his contract at the Bernabeu, he told Sky Sportshe said: “I don’t know. I love Chelsea.
“I was the happiest man [when there]. I was thinking to be there all my life and a few months later, I was out. So you never know.
“In Inter Milan I found an incredible family. Then after two years I felt it was over.
“When I sign a contract, I sign with the intention to respect the contract and be happy.”
