Jose Mourinho’s exit from Real Madrid at the end of this season was confirmed on Monday, after an official statement from club president Florentino Perez.
His imminent departure – which is said to be a mutual decision between the board and himself – comes as a result of his chaotic defeat in the Copa del Rey final against Atletico Madrid.
However, Mourinho is not set to go on a holiday next to his move from Spain. The "Special One" is expected to rush things and take charge of Chelsea as soon as this summer, following an agreement he had with the Blues’ owner Roman Abramovich.
Whereas most Chelsea players are excited about his return in England, Mourinho himself has affirmed that reuniting with his former London side was a wish of his own.
Spanish newspaper La Razon reported on Friday that during a visit to the Canillas facilities, where his son performs, Mourinho told parents that his move to the Premier League is something he is happy about.
"I'm going to London, where I want,” he said. “If you pick up a [local] newspaper, you will see that here [in La Liga], no one wants me.”
Mourinho, who was hit earlier this week by a two-match ban following his conduct in the Copa del Rey final, has often clashed with Spanish newspapers since his arrival at the Bernabeu.
The 50-year-old has very often been criticised by the local media, and his failure to earn a title this season for Real Madrid prompted him to drop his duties at the club's as manager.
Mourinho won three trophies in three years with Los Blancos, taking his managerial tally to 20 titles since 2002.
