Jose Mourinho is edging closer to a return as Chelsea manager, as Real Madrid expect to announce his departure in the next few days, according to the Daily Mail.

The Portuguese coach spent four successful years at Stamford Bridge earlier in his career, and would be a popular choice as a replacement for current interim boss Rafael Benitez.

However, Real are glad to be getting rid of him, as the 50-year-old has fallen out with the owners, fans and some players this season after a difficult year in which the club has been unable to claim any silverware.

Mourinho said it was the worst season of his career after his team’s surprise defeat to rivals Atletico Madrid in the Copa Del Rey final, and will surely be let go by the Spanish giants later this week.

He will then hope to get his career back on track at the club where he established himself as one of the world’s best managers, carrying on his fine work at Chelsea.

He is rumoured to be being given a massive £100million by Blues owner Roman Abramovich to spend on players this summer, to make the team into genuine title challengers again.
