Metro have certainly made Chelsea fans’ day here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim manager Jose Mourinho is set to be handed a new deal to stay at the club.
The Blues boss only returned in 2013 after a spell away from the club where he managed to lift La Liga, the Spanish Copa del Rey and the treble with Inter Milan to name but a few trophies and now it seems that both Chelsea and Mourinho are prepared to make a long term commitment to each other.
When leaving Real Madrid, Mourinho alluded to the fact that when he came back to England, it would be for good and now it seems that a new five year deal from the west London club will make sure that happens.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, that will give the Blues some much needed managerial stability after years with the likes of Avram Grant and Rafa Benitez – and will be invaluable when it comes to their blossoming academy of young starlets.
Chelsea fans. Is this the best news you could have heard? Do you think Jose is in it for the long haul this time? Let us know your thoughts below.
