With Rafael Benitez set to leave the club at the end of the season, will Chelsea fans get their wish this summer? Is Jose Mourinho set for a return to Stamford Bridge?

Back in 2005, the Blues were simply unstoppable.

With a rock-solid defence and a brilliant attack, Mourinho's side went on to win the Premier League. Falling outs with owner Roman Abrahimovich caused the manager, who was loved by the fans, to leave in 2007.

But now, with the Russian billionaire admitting that it wasn't a smart decision to let him go, and with Mourinho seemingly determined to leave Real Madrid, it has been suggested that the Portuguese coach is coming back to west London.

"The Special One" had a brilliant back-room staff, which helped Chelsea immensely. He was tactically astute as well and made several extremely intelligent buys, including Michael Essien, Didier Drogba and Ricardo Carvalho.

His records at Chelsea - such as most points secured in one season (95) and least goals conceded in one season (15) - are yet to be broken. During his spell, he won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup, which is some achievement.

He was also knocked out by Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League semi-finals after a controversial goal was allowed to stand.

The manager himself is controversial and has proved that on many occasions with Chelsea and Real Madrid. 

He is loved by the Chelsea fans and they are hoping that he comes back with a strong set of players to replicate his last stint at Stamford Bridge.

With Benitez doing a poor job and Chelsea having a bad season, it looks like Mourinho will come back home.
