Who's lined up to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid? Look through the Top candidates.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed that Jose Mourinho will definitely rejoin Chelsea over the summer.

The Portuguese said goodbye to the Bernabeu on Saturday night with a 4-2 victory over Osasuna and speculation has been mounting for some time that he will return to Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho, 50, enjoyed four stellar years with the Blues between 2004 and 2007 - winning two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, two League Cups and an FA Community Shield.

He went on to clinch the Champions League with Internazionale in 2010 and won the hearts of Real fans by wresting the La Liga title from arch-rivals Barcelona in 2012 before falling from grace this term and coming to a mutual agreement to terminate his contract.


Take a look back at Jose Mourinho's successful career here.

Ricardo Carvalho, who was a mainstay of Chelsea's defense under Mourinho and followed his compatriot to Real, believes that 'The Special One' returning to fill the Blues' vacancy left by the departing Rafa Benitez is a shrewd move for all concerned.

Carvalho said: "They are doing well but it is important to improve. It's a special club for me. I was so happy there and I wish they will win titles. They won the UEFA Cup (this season) but the Premier League is important.

"In two or three years I'm sure, but also in his first year he can win again. In 2004 when we went there, he won in his first year and he can do the same."
