Bernabeu boss hopes to reunite with Stamford Bridge warhorse.
Jose Mourinho wants to be reunited with his former Chelsea captain John Terry, according to reports in Italy.
The Portuguese boss and England defender enjoyed a close relationship at Stamford Bridge and won a host of trophies during their time together, including two Premier League titles.
And now La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Mourinho wants to bring the Blues skipper to Real Madrid to help continue his revival of the Spanish giants.
Although Real have a number of centre-halves on their books, Mourinho is said to value the leadership qualities of Terry highly.

It’s hard to imagine Blues skipper John Terry playing for anyone else or indeed to see the 30 year old leaving Stamford Bridge at all but if the experienced centre back was to be tempted then one would imagine a move to Real Madrid to play under his former boss Jose Mourinho would be a potentially tempting proposition.
Chelsea would of course fight off advances for their long term servant but if the defender pushed for an exit it seems unlikely that Roman Abramovich would stand in his way, not after 13 years of sterling service. Indeed the Blues are looking to plan for the future and David Luiz may be considered as the long term successor to the England skipper and if the right offer cam in for Terry, maybe it would be considered.
A number of Chelsea’s older guard have been linked with moves away from West London, chiefly among them Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka and the Premier League side are looking to reinvest this summer in new youthful talent so perhaps the idea of John Terry moving to the Spanish giants is not as far-fetched as it as first seems?
