Jose Mourinho has stated in an interview that he may not see out his current Real Madrid deal and followed up that statement with another fairly leading comment detailing his love for Chelsea Football club. In an interview with Sky Sports the Bernabeu boss stated.

“I do not know [if I will see out my contract at Real Madrid] but I will only stay if everything goes in the right direction” and of his feelings towards the Stamford Bridge outfit he lead to two Premier League titles he said.

“I love Chelsea, and when I was in London I was the happiest man. I thought I would be there all my life, and a few months later I was out. So you never know.”

Sometimes there is mindless speculation but these quotes do make it perfectly clear that Jose Mourinho would consider a return to a Chelsea side who are in the middle of a fairly poor season where seemingly the only real chances of silverware lie in their Champions League run, where they will take a two goal lead into the home leg of their last 16 match against FC Copenhagen.

Carlo Ancelotti has been under a great deal of pressure after an excellent start to the season was brought to an abrupt end with a series of below par performances that have seen the West London side fall twelve points behind Premier League leaders Man United and knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton. There has been some speculation that the Italian may head off to Roma to replace Claudio Ranieri at the club where the former AC Milan boss was a successful player.

Jose Mourinho has seen his Real Madrid side thwarted in their attempts to overhaul Barcelona in the La Liga chase but are still within range of Pep Guardiola’s men but if the Portuguese boss fails to land any major silverware this season then the pressure may be him to stand down and the romantic notion of a return to to SW6.
