Chelsea and José Mourinho Have Yet to Strike an Agreement Over Return: The Daily EPL

jose mourinho Chelsea and José Mourinho Have Yet to Strike an Agreement Over Return: The Daily EPL

Chelsea and Jose Mourinho have yet to strike an agreement that would see the return of The Special One to Stamford Bridge. Even though major hints were dropped last night that Mourinho wants to return to the Premier League, stating that “I want to be where I love to be, where people love me to be,” no deal is yet in place, which opens the door for clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City to try to entice Mourinho to join their club instead.

The manipulative Mourinho is starting a behind-the-scenes bidding war for his managerial talents.

Chelsea are not expected to make a formal announcement on who’ll replace interim-manager Rafael Benitez until June, after Chelsea plays two friendlies in the United States in late May.

What do you think? Can you see Mourinho returning to Chelsea, and would he do as well with that club as he did during his previous reign? Or can you see Mourinho using Chelsea to get other clubs into a bidding war, and helping raise his salary to exorbitant numbers from a club other than the Blues? Post your opinions in the comments section below.

Here are today’s Premier League news headlines:
