Real coach ready to return to Stamford Bridge, along with a star striker.
Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has agreed a dramatic return to Chelsea this summer – and will bring Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao with him from the Spanish capital, reports German daily Bild.
Mourinho looks likely to leave the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, after a fractious campaign in which the club have failed to keep the pace with runway La Liga leaders Barcelona.
Real’s imperious run in the Champions League also looks set to end at the semi-final stage, after a 4-1 first leg thrashing by Borussia Dortmund in Germany on Wednesday.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are searching for a new boss, with interim manager Rafa Benitez set to leave at the end of this season.
Bild reports that Mourinho has agreed to return to Stamford Bridge, where he won two Premier League titles and the FA Cup between 2004 and 2007 and achieved legendary status with the Blues faithful.
And the Portuguese, 50, is ready to bring Atletico’s £55m-rated striker Falcao with him to west London.
The Colombian, 27, has scored a staggering 28 goals in 33 appearances for the Spaniards this term and has reportedly been a target for the Blues for some time.
