Portuguese all set to come back to west London after a six-year absence.

Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho will be officially unveiled as the new manager of Chelsea on 1 July, according to a sensational front-page world exclusive by the Sun.

Speculation has been mounting of late in both Spain and England that the self-styled ‘Special One’ will be departing his role early at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the Portuguese contracted to Madrid until the summer of 2016.

However, with the Liga champions having all but lost their Spanish crown to arch-rivals FC Barcelona this season, as well as having recently been eliminated from the Uefa Champions League at the semi-final stage for the third year in a row, the club and their publicity-seeking trainer have come to an agreement to end their three-year association prematurely.

And Mourinho, 50, will be returning for a second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge six years after he was sacked by the Blues’ billionaire Russian owner Roman Abramovich, despite having guided the west London club to back-to-back top-flight titles, their first for exactly 50 years.
