Former Real Madrid star Ivan Campo believes Jose Mourinho could be set for a sensational return to Chelsea.
Rafa Benitez is currently the interim boss at Stamford Bridge but the club’s poor form, and unrest on the terraces about his appointment, could see Roman Abramovich look elsewhere as he attempts hire a permanent replacement for Roberto Di Matteo.
And Campo reckons ‘The Special One’, who previously took charge of the Blues from 2004-2007 and won the Premier League twice during his tenure, may leave the Spanish capital and move back to west London in the summer, especially if he wins the Champions League.
Asked if he thought Mourinho would become Chelsea manager next season, the Spaniard replied: “Probably, because he’s said many times he’d like to [manage] a very good team in England when he finishes his contract with Real Madrid.
“If Jose Mourinho wins the Champions League, in my personal opinion, next year he will be at a very big team in the Premier League, maybe with Chelsea, or, I don’t know, Tottenham.
“I don’t think, for example, he’d go to Manchester United because Sir Alex Ferguson would like to train there for his whole life, so maybe [Mourinho] will train next year at Chelsea.”
