Jose Mourinho has admitted that Chelsea means more to him than any other club and that he will return to coach in the Premier League.
The Real Madrid boss watched his current players Marcelo and Kaka play in Brazil's friendly against Russia at Stamford Bridge last night.
With the Portuguese expected to leave Madrid in the summer and Rafael Benitez finishing his role as interim boss at the end of the season, Mourinho could be back at Chelsea sooner rather than later.
Speaking to Sky Sports he said: "Of course, Chelsea means to me differently than other clubs. Chelsea in in my heart.
"I have big emotional connections with Chelsea and one day I think naturally I will have to be back to English football.
"I cannot deny that I love it here. One day I have to be back."
Mourinho is the most successful manager in Chelsea's history, having won six trophies for the club. The 50-year-old also was undefeated in all home league games during his spell.
The Madrid boss also feels that the United and Manchester City managerial positions will not be vacant for a while and wished Benitez luck for the rest of the campaign.
"I think Manchester is Sir Alex's kingdom and I would love that job to be his job forever, and for many more years and the other chair is Roberto with a contract," he added.
"He was champion two years ago so I don't think there is a move over there and I hope everything goes well for everyone. Even Benitez, I hope it goes well for him and I wish the same for them as me for it to go well."
