Chelsea hope to tie Jose Mourinho down to a new contract and will then give him the funds for an incredible summer transfer splurge on four top European targets.
Mirror Online say the recently crowned Premier League champions want the Portuguese coach at Stamford Bridge until at least 2019, extending his current £12 million-a-year deal by two years.
If Mourinho does put pen to paper, Roman Abramovich is then prepared to bankroll another summer of huge transfer deals where the Blues will chase a midfielder, defender, forward and goalkeeper.
Antoine Griezmann and Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette are thought to top Chelsea’s wishlist with Mourinho keen on reuniting with Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, meanwhile Vicente Guaita is seen as a more than able substitute for the likely outgoing Petr Cech.
Incredibly, the Mirror also say a close eye is being kept on the situation surrounding Gareth Bale at Real Madrid and will move for the Weslhman if any hint is given of unrest in the Spanish capital.
Chelsea hope to conduct this massive squad overhaul with minimal outgoings and all within the confines of Financial Fair Play.
In order to recoup som costs, as well as the aforementioned Cech, Oscar could be allowed to leave and Filipe Luis could be on the plane back to Madrid after just one year in London as a potential make-weight in a move for Griezmann.
