Jose Mourinho Confident Of Chelsea Return And Plans Signing Of Borussia Dortmund Star

Jose Mourinho would make Robert Lewandowski a prime target if he rejoins Chelsea this summer.

The Daily Express claim that Jose Mourinho is already planning his transfer targets if he returns to Chelsea next season.

The Real Madrid manager is likely to leave his post at the Bernabeu at the end of the season, and is said to be open to a return to Stamford Bridge, where he enjoyed great success between 2004 and 2007.

Roman Abramovich has a number of candidates in mind to replace interim manager Rafael Benitez next year, and despite falling out with him in his first spell at the club, Mourinho is up there with Malaga’s Manuel Pellegrini and Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp on his list.

Mourinho is already preparing for next season, and wants to make Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski his main target. The Polish striker is sought after by a number of top clubs around Europe, and would be available for around £24million.

Manchester United have been linked with Lewandowski as well, but reports emerged yesterday that Bayern Munich were currently the favourites to sign him from Dortmund in the summer.

Chelsea, however, are arguably in need of strikers more than either of those teams, due to the continued poor form of £50million flop Fernando Torres and with Demba Ba the only other option upfront. Romelu Lukaku is on loan at West Brom, but his future probably lies away from the Blues as he has been linked with a move to Swansea City.
