Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore is convinced Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho will return to Chelsea next season.

Collymore wrote in the People: "Trust me, Mourinho won’t be going to PSG. The French league is second rate, even with Becks and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on board.

"I believe Jose wants the Manchester United job, but Fergie isn’t going anywhere yet, so where else for the Special One?

"Back to Chelsea of course, and with a twist. He comes in, we love him, and he makes Chelsea competitive again. But whereas several managers have had the remit: “Get rid of Frank and JT”, Mourinho won’t.

"He likes them, they like him, and he knows the value of experience. He could groom them in the art of management and in a few years, when he heads off to Old Trafford, he leaves behind a ready-made managerial legendfest in Frank and JT.

"This is Chelsea. Anything really can happen."
