The return of 'The Special One' nears! Chelsea open proceedings with Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich has given the green light to open talks with Jose Mourinho’s representatives over a summer return to Stamford Bridge.

As reported in El Confidential, Roman Abramovich’s PA Marina Granovskaia met with Jorge Mende, Jose’s agent, to hold preliminary talks over the Portuguese managers long awaited return.

Chelsea currently have Rafael Benitez as interim boss until the end of the season, and his permanent replacement has been speculated in the press since the day of his arrival.

Pepe Guardiola was widely assumed to have been the main reasoning behind Rafa’s appointment on a temporary basis until the summer, with the manager currently seeing out a 12-month sabbatical away from football. He has since signed on to become Bayern Munich’s new manager from this summer, forcing Chelsea to look elsewhere for their next permanent boss.

Jose has since fallen out of favour with the Real faithful, with his side trailing La Liga leaders Barcelona by a huge 13 points, with 8 games remaining. He has also put himself in the spotlight because of his feuds with key players, including club captain Iker Casillas who has spent the majority of this season out of the Madrid first XI.

Mourinho is also on the radar’s of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City but is said to be keen to return to the club he loves – Chelsea.

We have wanted to see his return since the day he left, and having Rafael Benitez in charge is just enticing us to clock-watch until The Special One finally returns. Another season without Jose and we might actually fall out of the top 4! I believe Roman will do all he can to bring back Mou, even if it means taking a slightly less hands-on approach. I think the Russian wants to bring in a long-term manager to preserve the stature of the club. Jose is not just The Special One, but the only one.
