Jose Mourinho has not agreed a deal to leave Real Madrid and go back to Chelsea this summer, though talks are ongoing.

Reports on Wednesday claimed Mourinho was all set to go back to Stamford Bridge after Real Madrid crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.

However, The Guardian is reporting that no such agreement is in place, though Mourinho’s representatives are in talks with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich about a possible return.

The report claims Blues officials are looking at a number of candidates to take over in the summer when interim manager Rafael Benitez steps down, though Mourinho is top of that list.

There are two major issues that must be ironed out, according to the report, before any deal to take Mourinho back to Chelsea can be finalised.

One is the two-time Premier League champion’s current deal with Real Madrid, which does not expire until the summer of 2016.

The second, and supposedly most important, is Mourinho’s acceptance of the current management structure at Stamford Bridge.

It claims a major issue for his departure in 2007 was his annoyance at the power he had over running of the club being diluted, especially when Avram Grant was installed as director of football.

Chelsea are adamant that Mourinho must be prepared to work under the current hierarchy with Michael Emenalo as technical director, who has major influence over scouting an recruitment.
