Mourinho, currently in charge of Italian club Roma, is one of the most successful managers in world football.
He has won top-flight titles in England, Spain, Italy and Portugal and has already had two spells as Chelsea boss from 2004 to 2007 and from 2013 to 2015.
During his first stint at Chelsea, Mourinho dubbed himself ‘The Special One’ and won back-to-back Premier League titles as well as the FA Cup and two League Cups.
In his second spell at Stamford Bridge, the Portuguese manager lifted another Premier League title as well as a third League Cup.
Mourinho was sacked by the Blues after a poor start to the 2015-16 campaign and then had stints at both Manchester United and Tottenham before heading to Roma in 2021.
According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho is now eyeing a return to the Premier League because he feels Roma are not financially backing him after he led them to glory in the Europa Conference League last term.
Mourinho’s representatives have already let it be known that the 60-year-old would be interested in a return to Chelsea – and his personal life is still largely based in London – where his wife and children live.
Both of Mourinho’s spells at Chelsea came when Roman Abramovich was still in charge and it remains to be seen how new owner Todd Boehly would feel about the legendary manager returning.
It has been thought that Boehly is keen to stick with current head coach Graham Potter, who replaced Thomas Tuchel in September, despite Chelsea’s struggles this season, with the club currently 10th in the Premier League and 10 points off the top four.
Mourinho has also managed Inter Milan – where he famously won a treble – as well as Porto, where he made a name for himself after sensationally guiding them to Champions League glory. He had a three-year spell at Real Madrid too.
