Mourinho enjoyed a hugely successful spell in charge of Chelsea, winning six trophies in three years – including two Premier League titles - but was sacked after a fall-out with club owner Roman Abramovich.
‘The Special One’ has never hidden his desire to one day return to England after falling in love with the Premier League whilst in charge at Stamford Bridge, and it is now believed that he plans to return this summer after three years away with Inter and Real Madrid.
There would be no shortage of suitors for Mourinho, who is regarded as one of the world’s finest coaches, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City all likely to be interested in the charismatic manager.
Chelsea’s £50 million striker, Fernando Torres, claims he, along with his team-mates, would welcome the opportunity to work with Mourinho, and is quoted by The Sun as saying:
“Mourinho is a big coach and is very much wanted at Chelsea.
"I'll work with him anytime but I know it's difficult."
Mourinho is currently in his first year of a four-year contract at Real Madrid though there are tensions behind the scenes after the club were reportedly unwilling to finance any move for a new striker in the January transfer window, and currently trail arch-rivals Barcelona in Spain's Primera Division.
