Barcelona lining up sensational swoop for Chelsea gaffer

Jose MourinhoOur punters are used to surprising rumours and shocking twists and turns here in the Football Transfer Tavern but the Daily Express have literally topped everything we have heard before and Chelsea fans are open-mouthed.

According to the publication, it seems that Barcelona are set on bringing none other than Blues boss Jose Mourinho back to the club should Joan Laporta win their next presidential elections.

Now, as our regulars note, not only would that be a huge shock for Chelsea and massive blow for the Blues to swallow but given Mourinho’s links with Real Madrid and his clashes with Barcelona in the past, we think that is a feat even Mourinho himself would struggle to overcome.

Some of our punters in the tavern simply refuse to entertain the notion that Mourinho would even consider the offer but as our landlord notes over by the pool table, he certainly loves a challenge and what better way to prove that he is the best manager in the world than by winning La Liga with Barcelona and finally shrugging the label of a translator off.

Chelsea fans. Do you think Mourinho would ever consider this? After Frank Lampard’s betrayal do you now think anything is possible? Let us know your thoughts below.
