Chelsea F.C. want Jose Mourinho to return for a third term as manager, as per reports
Chelsea Transfer News:
Chelsea intend to bring Jose Mourinho back to Stamford Bridge for a third time as manager.
That is in line with speculations that the current Roma manager is thinking about his future. The Special One has been in Rome for a year and a half, bringing the inaugural Europa Conference League trophy to the Stadio Olimpico to end a 15-year trophy drought.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Portuguese icon is considering his options, while other reports indicate that he is dissatisfied with the degree of of investment that he has received.
Mourinho, though, would welcome another opportunity to lead Chelsea, according to journalist Simon Phillips, who spoke to GiveMeSport:
“I was told that Mourinho approached some of the potential Chelsea buyers when the club was first up for sale through Jorge Mendes, obviously, the agent who has good connections with Mourinho and Chelsea.”
The 60-year-old has allegedly expressed his willingness to go back to west London, where he has won three titles. Graham Potter, the current Blues manager, is under contract until 2027, but his position is in danger due to poor performance.

Investment would probably not be a problem for Mourinho, who previously managed under previous owner Roman Abramovich, as Chelsea have spent about £600 million under current owner Todd Boehly.
Despite the current reports, Mourinho was adamant that he will stay with Roma after winning the Europa Conference League.
“I’m gonna turn down any proposal. I will stay here at Roma even if there are rumours. We made history today, he said. “I have no doubts, I will continue as Roma manager. Many things are going through my head right now. I feel like a true Romanista.”
