Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole has agreed a one-year extension to his current contract, keeping him with the West-London club until at the summer of 2014, and I personally believe it is because ‘The Special One’ is returning home.
Cole had been expected to leave the Blues at the end of the season for free, with Chelsea previously said to be unwilling to offer the 32 year-old a new deal.
The England left-back’s agent was in Madrid earlier this month to hold talks over a possible move to Real, but with Jose Mourinho leaving Spain this summer he decided to look elsewhere.
‘The Special One’ is said to have been in contact with senior Chelsea stars Ashley Cole, John Terry and Frank Lampard since his time at Stamford Bridge, and I believe he is the reason Roman Abramovich and the Ex-Arsenal defender have been able to agree terms.
Jose is widely expected to return to Stamford Bridge for next season, having been in constant contact with Roman this season. He is said to be consulted on football matters on regular occasions having reconciled their relationship in the past year.
Mourinho is and always be a favourite at Stamford Bridge, having brought instant Premier League success with back-to-back PL titles in his first two seasons. He has always spoken highly of Chelsea and the Premier League and is as short as 5-4 favourite with one bookmaker to become the Blues boss this summer.
Chelsea fans have wanted Jose to return since the day he left, and we finally look to be getting our wish. The Portugese manager has proved his tactical abilities in Spain and Italy, and has declared himself that he wishes to return to England soon. Is Jose really coming home to Chelsea? I believe so…
