Perez claimed to have revealed Mourinho’s next club.
Real Madrid president is claimed to have told Sky Sports News that manager Jose Mourinho has agreed a deal to take charge at Chelsea next season.
It was announced last month that the 50-year-old would be leaving Real Madrid at the end of this season after three years in charge at the Bernabeu, and Chelsea has been widely tipped for some time now to be his next destination.
The Portuguese tactician previously managed the Blues from 2004 to 2007, and enjoyed great success in his first spell at Stamford Bridge before leaving due to a falling out with owner Roman Abramovich.
However, the pair now seem set to work together again as the Russian owner seeks a replacement for interim manager Rafael Benitez, who was put in charge temporarily for the second half of the season. The Spaniard has now left to take over at Italian side Napoli.
Mourinho did not enjoy the best times of his career in Spain, but Ricardo Carvalho, who played under him at both Chelsea and Madrid, backed him to be a success in the Premier League once again.
“They are doing well but it is important to improve,” the defender said. “They won the UEFA Cup (this season) but the Premier League is important.
“In two or three years I’m sure, but also in his first year he can win again. In 2004 when we went there, he won in his first year and he can do the same.”
