Portuguese will oversee his final match in charge of Madrid on 1 June.
Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho has finally agreed to return to Premier League giants Chelsea for a second spell of the west Londoners, six years after he first left Stamford Bridge, according to reports in the Sunday Times.
The Spanish giants announced that they would be parting company with the self-styled ‘Special One’ on mutual terms earlier this week after the Portuguese had been at the Santiago Bernabeu for the past three years.
However, despite having a contract in the Spanish capital that ran until the end of June 2016, Madrid and the 50-year-old both agreed that this summer was the right time to end their relationship early.
And that is because Mourinho had just endured the first trophy-less season of his 11-year top-level coaching career, with arch-rivals FC Barcelona regaining La Liga, while the club also lost the Copa del Rey final to city-rivals Atletico de Madrid, as well as losing in the semi-finals of the Uefa Champions League for the third year in a row.
But nonetheless, Mou has still reportedly been offered the most lucrative managerial contract in the history of the Premier League, with Blues owner Roman Abramovich set to pay him £8.5 million per season after tax.
