Many Chelsea supporters are hoping that the self-styled Special One returns to Stamford Bridge this summer, although it appears that Jose Mourinho could yet be staying put at the Bernabeu.

Despite Mourinho claiming he wants a managerial return to England, the Portuguese manager does have a contract with Real Madrid until 2016, with discussions to take place with the Spanish club this summer regarding his future.
“When the season ends I will sit down with who I have to sit down with, who as well as being the president is also my friend and is the legal and emotional representative of all Real Madrid fans,” he said.
“We will sit down quietly and talk about my future, like two friends.”
Many Real supporters are not fond of Mourinho, despite the manager having led them to the Spanish title last term and they are also into the semi-finals of the Champions League after a quarter final aggregate win against Galatasaray.
Gala did threaten a scare when going 3-1 in front on Tuesday night, although Mourinho reacted to the change in scoreline to ensure his team went through.
“I put (Raul) Albiol in front of the defence and there were 10 dangerous minutes before things calmed down.”
He added: “I’m happy about qualifying. I would like to play at this ground every match, everyone wants to play in atmospheres like this, it is perfect for football and I don’t think the Real Madrid players used it. The Galatasaray players did. They had a fantastic second half, played with pride and all that is good about football.
“We could have done better, but I’m happy for Galatasaray’s players and the coach, who went out there in the best way possible.”
