Stamford Bridge owner hopes to lure the ‘Special One’ back to West London.
EXCLUSIVE: Come back Jose… Roman wants Special One to rebuild Chelsea
Roman Abramovich is refusing to give up on his dream of taking Jose Mourinho back as Chelsea manager.
Although Mourinho insists he will remain with La Liga champions Real Madrid for at least another season, the Chelsea owner is undeterred.
He wants an experienced manager to overhaul the squad and hopes Mourinho will change his mind.
The Portuguese coach, who joined his players on an open-top bus parade on Thursday to celebrate Real’s title win, is the most successful manager in Chelsea history.
He was fired after a 1-1 draw against Rosenborg in the Champions League in 2007 and the £18million compensation Abramovich paid Mourinho and his staff was thought to be a major stumbling block to his potential return.

Roman Abramovich will have his work cut out trying to lure back Jose Mourinho, not least because he has wrestled La Liga supremacy from Barcelona and seen the Nou Camp side lose their talismanic boss Pep Guardiola, but that may not stop the Chelsea owner from making an offer the Portuguese boss may be interested to hear.
It is clear that the ‘Special One’ is still very attached to his former club but the chances of the 49 year old leaving Spain now would surely be slim to none at this moment in time. Though Mourinho was subject to a great deal of abuse from some elements within the Bernabeu as well as in the Spanish press the fact that he has clinched the La Liga crown should make his tenure at Real Madrid all the more secure.
Mourinho enjoyed three successful seasons at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League twice in the process, before he left in September 2007 after falling out with Abramovich following a lean run of form.
