Mourinho deal agreed?

Jose Mourinho will fly to London on June 2nd to sign a four year contract at Chelsea, according to the Daily Star.

Real Madrid confirmed that the 50 year old, who is the hot favourite to replace interim Blues manager Rafael Benitez, will leave the Bernabeu once the Spanish season is over.

Mourinho’s first spell at Stamford Bridge ran from 2004 to 2007, when he won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and two league cups.

The self-proclaimed Special One is set to sign a deal worth £250,000 per week, and is expected to be accompanied by fitness coach Rui Faria and goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro.

Meanwhile, Napoli are reportedly planning a double swoop for Rafael Benitez and Fernando Torres.

The Mirror claim that representatives of the Serie A club held successful talks with Benitez before he flew to America for the two post season friendlies against Manchester City, who incidentally are favourites to sign striker Edinson Cavani.

City’s Edin Dzeko is expected to go in the other direction, though it is thought that Napoli believe Benitez could persuade Torres to join him should he make the move.

Despite having a slow season domestically, Torres finished the campaign with 23 goals in all competitions.
