Chelsea are launching a massive bid to bring Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic back to Stamford Bridge.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea have made a £25m move for Matic.

The midfielder first joined Chelsea in 2009 but made just two appearances before leaving for Portugal in 2011 as part of the deal that saw David Luiz arrive at Stamford Bridge.

However, manager Jose Mourinho now sees Matic as the man to install in a defensive midfield role.
