Portuguese will give his first press conference as the new Blues boss next week.
Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has officially agreed to become the next head coach of Chelsea on a four-year deal worth £10 million per season, according to reports in the Sun.
The self-styled ‘Special One’ still has one more match left in charge of the Spanish giants, at home to Osasuna in La Liga on Saturday, before he departs the Santiago Bernabeu after what will have been three turbulent years in the Spanish capital.
The Portuguese, 50, is contracted to los Blancos until 30 June 2016, however, both he and Madrid have mutually agreed to end their relationship early after a difficult campaign for the club.
Not only have Madrid seen the title that they won in such spectacular style last year return to arch-rivals FC Barcelona, but they were also beaten by city rivals Atletico de Madrid in the Copa del Rey final on their own ground earlier this month.
And as if to make matters worse, Madrid also lost in the semi-finals of the Uefa Champions League to Borussia Dortmund for the third year in a row.
