Stamford Bridge and Parc des Princes make the list but where else could the Special One end up?
A report in the Daily Mirror this morning claims that Chelsea and Jose Mourinho have provisionally agreed the terms for the return of the Special One to Stamford Bridge next season.
The Portuguese is almost certain to leave Real Madrid this summer, after failing to mount a competent defence of last term’s La Liga title and a series of bust-ups with several influential players at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Despite Chelsea’s reported interest, speculation is rife about where Mou will end up. We take a look at the five most likely destinations for the Special One…
Mourinho reportedly advised two of his favourite sons, Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba, to join the Turkish giants in January, leading to speculation he could be set to follow this summer. The Turks clearly have the wealth to attract the Special One and their current impressive run in the Champions League suggests Gala possess a squad with plenty of talent and potential.
Mourinho loves a challenge and Champions League glory with Gala would surely surpass even his triumph at Porto.
But Gala are already comfortably the best side in Turkey, so there is limited scope for domestic improvement, and Super Lig remains an average league, someway behind Europe’s top five leagues. It is tricky to see Mou heading for Istanbul just yet.
