Stamford Bridge owner looking to get the job done.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has sent his personal assistant Marina Granovskaia to Madrid to complete a deal to bring Jose Mourinho back to Stamford Bridge to replace Rafa Benitez as the Blues new permanent manager according to Spanish source El Confidencial.
Granovskaia is apparently Abramovich’s ‘most trusted lieutenant‘ and is being sent to meet Mourinho in person to formally offer the Portuguese boss the Chelsea manager’s job.
Mourinho has already sent his representatives to West London to listen to the offer on the table from Abramovich and is apparently ready to leave the Bernabeu this summer but the Chelsea supremo is seemingly concerned that another potential suitor could pip him to the post, hence sending in his ‘right-hand woman’ to get the job done.
PSG are reportedly one such side, with the Parc des Princes side said to be interested in appointing Mourinho as their new boss, this despite the fact that Carlo Ancelotti is set to secure the Ligue 1 side their first domestic title in nearly 20 years as well as a run to the Champions League quarter-finals.
Mourinho has recently spoke of the possibility that his next job could be with one of his former clubs and the 50 year old remains the overwhelming favourite to fill the soon to be vacant managerial post at the club and clearly moves to get such a deal complete is of great importance to Abramovich.
Jose Mourinho enjoyed a successful three and a bit year spell at Chelsea, winning two Premier League titles and a host of other successes prior to leaving the club in September 2007.
