Official website suggested Portuguese tactician has signed deal with Blues.

The Premier League have moved quickly to confirm that a story published on their official website suggesting Jose Mourinho had returned to Chelsea, was published by mistake.

The former Blues boss bid farewell to current club Real Madrid on Saturday, as his tenure in Spain draws to a close now that the domestic season is over.

There is widespread speculation that he will now return to the Premier League, where he will begin his second stint in charge of Chelsea.

However, the Premier League have prematurely confirmed the deal on their website on Sunday with Monday’s date, stating that “Portuguese coach is back at Stamford Bridge after signing a xx-year contract”.

According to BBC Sport, who contacted the site shortly after the article went live, the Premier League revealed that they have no inside knowledge over the situation surrounding his future and that it was merely a publishing error.

Mourinho signed off as Madrid boss with a 4-2 win over Osasuna, and is now expected to return to Stamford Bridge where he enjoyed a great deal of success between 2004-2007.

Players both past and present have all suggested that the 50-year-old is keen on a return to England, with Chelsea his ideal destination.

While he will look back at not being able to win the Champions League during his time in the Spanish capital with some regret, he will be determined to do so should he seal his return to London as he aims to pick up from where he left off.

However, there has been no official confirmation from neither the club nor Mourinho himself, and it remains to be seen if the deal is concluded.
