Jose Mourinho has signed a four-year deal to manage Chelsea for the second time, according to reports in the British media.
The Special One was in London earlier this week to watch Crystal Palace win promotion to the Premier League at Wembley.
And it is believed that he took the opportunity of his stay in England’s capital to confirm his impending return to Stamford Bridge.
According to Soccernet, overnight reports in the tabloid media cite a Chelsea ‘insider’, who claimed: "It's official. Jose is a Chelsea man again!
“Everyone is delighted he's coming back - the club, the players and the fans.
“We are already looking forward to next season; we are sure it's going to be very exciting."
Mourinho will leave his post as manager of Real Madrid after Los Blancos’ last La Liga game of the season on this weekend.
He is expected to be officially announced as Chelsea manager on Tuesday.
Mourinho won six trophies during his first stint at Stamford Bridge, helping to establish the Blues as a Premier League force, before falling out with the club’s ruthless Russian owner, Roman Abramovich.
Chelsea ended last season well, with their daunting squad beginning to fulfil its potential.
They are expected to make a few eye-catching moves during the next transfer period, and under The Special One, may well start next season as outside favourites to win the Premier League.
