According to reports circulating in Europe, Chelsea’s new owners, led by Todd Boehly, are considering hiring the AS Roma manager, who wants to return to Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho has won three Premier Leagues, one FA Cup, and three League Cups during his two spells at Chelsea.
Roman Abramovich, the club’s former owner, fired him twice.
Mourinho later managed Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United after leaving Chelsea.
According to recent European reports, representatives of the former Real Madrid manager have approached Chelsea about a possible return to West London.
Sports journalist Oliver Holt believes that bringing the Portuguese back to Stamford Bridge would be a mistake for Boehly.
“Boehly might accept it, but that would be a mistake. Mourinho’s time in the elite has come to an end.
“It would be too dangerous. His methods now appear sour and outmoded.”
