The Mirror have reported that Chelsea have reached an ‘agreement’ former manager Jose Mourinho to return to the club for next season.
The 50 year olds previous spell at Stamford Bridge allegedly ended my mutual consent six years ago with the self-proclaimed Special One having clinched six trophies in just three seasons.
Speculation linking the Portuguese boss’s return to Stamford Bridge has been rife even before Interim Manager Rafael Benitiez took the reins earlier in the season, and it seems that both parties have agreed on a provisional three year contract, which reportedly hangs on whether or not the Blues clinch Champions League football for next season.
However, reports in France claim that a similar deal has been struck with French Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain, who are currently led by fellow former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti.
The report names Guus Hiddink as a potential fall back should the Mourinho deal not materialise.
Elsewhere, club captain John Terry has been linked with a shock move to Turkish side Fenerbache.
The Istanbul side are keen to rival Galatasaray, who earlier this year signed former Blues legend Didier Drogba, with big name signings and are reportedly keen on Terry, who has a year to run on his current contract.
