Jose Mourinho has verbally agreed to make a sensational Chelsea return in the summer, according to reports.
The Daily Star claims the Real Madrid chief is set to earn £12million-a-year at Stamford Bridge, after agent Jorge Mendes brokered a deal with Blues owner Roman Abramovich and his team of advisers.
Reports in Spain suggest Medes has spent the past week in the English capital, and has reached agreement on a three-year deal that also gives Mourinho freedom in the transfer market.
And, as one of his first acts on return to Chelsea, the 50-year-old will look to bring Hulk to west London, according to the report.
In a move that could have huge ramifications for the future of Fernando Torres, ‘the special one’ has set his sights on a player who can provide the sort of power that Didier Drogba once did on arrival from Marseille back in 2004.
However, the Brazilian hitman won’t come cheap for Chelsea, having joined Zenit St Petersburg for £42million back in September.
But, Abramovich has close connections to the Russian outfit, the paper claims, which could be a potentially decisive factor in their pursuit of the player.
Chelsea want a final decision on the offer on June 1st at the latest.
