Jose tipped to return
Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho would snub all offers to make a sensational return to Chelsea in the summer, reports have claimed.
The former Blues boss looks certain to leave the Bernabeu at the end of the season and he will not be short of offers as he looks for a fresh challenge, with a return to the Premier League known to be high on his wanted list.
Manchester City will be in the hunt should they part company with Roberto Mancini, but Mourinho has set his heart on a return to Stamford Bridge if Roman Abramovich makes an approach.
Rafa Benitez is in charge until the end of the season but his deal will not be extended as Chelsea's season went from bad to worse with another defeat at struggling Newcastle on Saturday.
Now that Pep Guardiola has opted for Bayern Munich, Abramovich is running out of options and a move for Mourinho would also go down well with the fans who are still fuming following the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo and the appointment of Benitez.
