Blues look to fend off interest from Spain for title chasing manager.
Chelsea are said to be preparing a bumper new contract for manager Jose Mourinho after recent reports began linking him with taking over from Luis Enrique at the Nou Camp, the Daily Express reports.
Enrique only took over the Catalonian giants over the summer but has so far failed to impress as arch-rivals Real Madrid look to run away with the La Liga title.
Chelsea themselves are the frontrunners for the Premier League title, and Mourinho has been a driving force behind their early season dominance.
Barca are keen to bring Mourinho back to the Nou Camp, where he previously worked as a coach and translator, but reports of their interest have prompted the Blues to put together a new deal to keep him in west London.
And the man himself has hinted that he would be prepared to reject any reported interest from Spain by saying: “I’m not here thinking about my next move because I don’t want to have a next move.
“I will have a next move if and when Chelsea decides it’s time for that. I’m here to stay. I belong to Chelsea, Chelsea belong to me.”
