The appointment of Jose Mourinho as the manager of Chelsea Football Club has brought a welcome boost for the club as well as the fans.

Mourinho returns to London after six years, taking charge of the club which is the closest to his heart.

In 2004, with Mourinho's arrival, Chelsea saw a flurry of star players joining the club, the notable name being that of Didier Drogba.

It was a shrewd move by Mourinho then which paid dividends - ultimately Drogba being regarded as a club Legend, scoring 157 goals in his eight-year stay and winning numerous silverware.

Chelsea bought Spanish striker Fernando Torres from Liverpool with a record fee of £50million, in the winter transfer window of 2011. But, he struggled in his initial years as experts believe it was hard for him to fit into the Chelsea mould, due to his style of play which is different to that of Chelsea's.

He made gradual progress over the past couple of years, having his best year in a Blues shirt in 2012/13 with 23 goals in all competitions.

This would only get better as Mourinho has vowed to bring the best out of his ace striker. Torres too is up for the challenge and is looking forward to working with the Portuguese coach.

While the situation with Wayne Rooney at Manchester United is complicated as the player has been unsettled for sometime and is not willing to play second fiddle to last season's top scorer, Robin van Persie.

The club though is not looking to sell him but if they really have to, will do business with a foreign club rather than with a domestic rival.

Mourinho is a known admirer of the England international and has already tabled two bids of £25million and £30million, both of which were swiftly rejected by the Red Devils, according to Sky Sports

As things stand, it looks likely that Rooney might force his way out to join the Blues this summer.

Chelsea fans are highly optimistic by the prospect of Torres and Rooney forming the club's attack upfront, and with Mourinho at the helm they can definitely expect some fireworks in the goalscoring department if they both play together.

Chelsea generally play a formation of 4-2-3-1 which requires only one striker, but Mourinho will surely have some master plan if he wants to have two or more strikers in the starting line-up.

The club have a roster of world-class talents, and with the addition of Rooney they will venture out for the new season, not only for domestic success, but also European glory.

The Stamford Bridge outfit are leading the experts opinion to lift the Premier League title at the end of 2013/14 season.
