The ‘Special One’ will be officially announced this week.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has confirmed to Sky Sports that Jose Mourinho will be returning to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea manager next season.

Mourinho has been strongly linked with a return to the club he spent three years at for the past few months and it is set to be made official on Monday.

The Portuguese boss had much success with the Blues when he was in charge between 2004 and 2007 – bringing a maiden Premier League title to the club during his first season as manager.

Now the west London side will be hoping the self professed ‘Special One’ can relive that glory, as although Chelsea have won the Champions League and the Europa League in the past two years, they have not brought the league title to the Bridge since 2010.

Since leaving England in 2007 Mourinho has led Inter Milan to the treble in 2010 – triumphing in the Champions League, Serie A and the Coppa Italia – before heading to Madrid and winning La Liga in 2012 with the highest points total in history.

At the Blues the 50-year-old won the league title twice, as well as an FA Cup and a League Cup and is considered a favourite among the fans.

Mourinho’s acrimonious departure in 2007 left a somewhat sour taste at the club, but it seems that he and owner Roman Abramovich have sorted out their differences.

The arrival of Mourniho will signal the 10th permanent managerial change in nine years at the Chelsea and 11 if current interim boss Rafael Benitez is added to the list.
