Chelsea have agreed a deal to re-appoint Jose Mourinho as manager of the Stamford Bridge club.

The Sunday Times claims that the 50 year old Portuguese manager will earn £8.5m a year after tax to become the highest paid manager in Premier League history.

Mourinho will pen a four year deal as soon as his tenure at Real Madrid comes to an end, which will see the ‘Special One’ officially leave on June 1st after the club’s final fixture of the season at home to Osasuna.

Mourinho will replace Rafa Benitez who is set to join Napoli following the completion of his interim spell in charge of Chelsea and will look to replicate the success garnered during his previous spell in charge of the Blues which saw the club win two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups between 2004 and 2007.

Jose Mourinho’s time in charge of Real Madrid has been rather less successful and this season saw the Spanish giants lose their La Liga title to Barcelona as well as a Copa Del Rey final to city rivals Atletico.
