thumbnail Hello,

The Tottenham manager is in favour of ‘The Special One’ coming back to Stamford Bridge as the Real Madrid boss expected to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted a potential return of Jose Mourinho to Chelsea and the Premier League would be "spectacular".

The former Blues boss is expected to end his time in Spain with Real Madrid this summer and said following the club's Champions League exit that he might not return next season, stating that he wants to go where he "feels loved".

On Wednesday Goal.com exclusively revealed deals have been agreed to take Atletico Madrid striker Falcao and Mourinho to Stamford Bridge, and Villas-Boas is expecting his old boss to return.

Villas-Boas told reporters: "He obviously wants to come back to England, whether he has a club aligned or not, we never know.

"It's extremely unlikely when someone makes it that public that something is not set out already but he is a great addition to the Premier League. He has a wonderful history in this league and I think it will be spectacular to have him back."

The current Spurs boss worked under Mourinho during the 50-year-old’s time at Porto, Chelsea and Inter, and believes his former boss' failure to win the Champions League in Madrid will be seen as an underachievement.

"When he left [England] he wasn't that well loved by a few of you guys [the media] and that was something we talked about.

"He was loved in all the clubs where he has won titles, in Real Madrid the same.

"There is maximum respect for what he has achieved, but for it to be at the level of Real Madrid's expectancy, we will never know. Probably not, but he certainly has won a league against a dream Barcelona team, which is a great achievement."
