Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has been linked with a move back to the Premier League next season to his former club Chelsea, as well as speculation he may succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, reports the Daily Express.


It appears that the first attempt to gain the Portuguese coach's signature has been made by the Blues, and it is rumoured Mourinho has already made it clear to the Real Madrid hierarchy, that he wants to leave at the end of the season.


Chelsea's gesture came in the form of a £350,000 watch that Roman Abramovich recently gave Mourinho, according to Spanish TV program Punto Pelota.


The report also suggests senior players at Chelsea are well aware of talks with Mourinho, and are confident he will replace interim manager Rafael Benitez next season.


'The Special One' has already claimed that his next job will be in England and has never hidden his desire to return to west London.


Chelsea fans have not hidden their dislike for Benitez, and Mourinho would be a very popular appointment if he were to return.
