Ex-Chelsea boss Mourinho open to Barcelona return

El Mundo Deportivo says the former Chelsea manager has made it known that he would be happy to return to the Nou Camp, where he spent four years as an assistant coach, if Frank Rijkaard was to be dismissed this season.

Mourinho would want agreement over the transfer budget and management control, but in-principle he would be happy to return to Barca. However, even if he was to replace Rijkaard before the January market, Barca's board would not be prepared to give the green light for major spending until the summer.
