Avram Grant is ready to return to Chelsea.

The People says Grant was the Stamford Bridge boss when they reached the Champions League final in Moscow and were just a John Terry penalty fluff from glory before being dramatically axed.

But now the Israeli is back on the scene, helping out on future transfer targets and in the good books of Russian owner Roman Abramovich.

Abramovich and Grant fell out when he was sacked, but the long-term friends have kissed and made up and are set to make that relationship formal again.
