JOSE MOURINHO is prepared to make an amazing return to Chelsea — but only on HIS terms.

The Blues sacked Avram Grant on Saturday without having an immediate replacement.

Frank Rijkaard remains the favourite and contact has already been made with the Dutchman, who could be interviewed in the next week.

But Mourinho would say ‘yes' to taking back his old job — providing he was given three key guarantees from billionaire owner Roman Abramovich:

That he would have complete control of all football matters including transfers, first team and the academy.

Academy director Frank Arnesen — who Mourinho believes to be his enemy — is sacked.

That he could bring back all of his backroom staff with him.

As SunSport revealed on Saturday, Mourinho has been in regular contact with Abramovich and other Chelsea directors over the past few weeks.

But he has been negotiating a deal to take over at Inter Milan next season.

Inter president Massimo Moratti is pressing for an answer and expects to announce Mourinho as new coach this week.

Mourinho would risk losing the Italian job if he tried to delay a decision. The Blues are not interested in Sven Goran Eriksson and have decided Mark Hughes is not ready.

Club chiefs feel appointing an Italian is a backward step after Gianluca Vialli and Claudio Ranieri, while Guus Hiddink does not want the pressure.


Keep to topic please & keep it sensible, Only paper talk but who knows :cool:

i read somewhere that rijkaard is in need if money,so the chelsea boss would suit him down to the ground,but if that's true,they shouldn't take him on,he's not had a good time lately at barca,but then maybe a change would do him good,don't know about chelsea though.
