Chelsea owner Abramovich to meet with Mourinho this week

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready for face-to-face talks with Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready for face-to-face talks with Jose Mourinho.

The People says Abramovich has ­arranged to meet Mourinho this week to discuss a possible return to Chelsea for The Special One.

It is believed that the talks, scheduled to take place in the Mediterranean aboard the Chelsea owner’s £300million super-yacht Eclipse, would be the first face-to-face meeting between the pair to thrash out a return for Mourinho.

Abramovich is struggling to find an A-list manager to replace interim boss Rafa Benitez, with Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp having turned down the Russian’s advances.

With Chelsea fans desperate for a Mourinho comeback – almost six years after his sacking by Abramovich – the Real Madrid boss has cranked up the ­pressure on Chelsea’s owner by making it clear publicly that he wants to return.

Mourinho admitted he is ­likely to leave Real Madrid, after their Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of Dortmund, insisting: “There are clubs in England that love me – especially one.”
