Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho wants a return to the Premiership next season.

The Guardian says Mourinho is expected to leave Internazionale after a year in Italy, most likely with a Serie A title to his name but having failed to his primary objective of bring the European Cup to San Siro following elimination at the hands of Manchester United.

The Portuguese privately craves a return to the Premier League, having seen his glittering reign at Stamford Bridge terminated abruptly in September 2007 after the high-profile fracture of his relationship with the club's owner, Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea senior players want Mourinho to return, while he also has been strongly linked with Manchester City should Mark Hughes be removed at the end of the season. Yet it is understood that he would be reluctant to take up the position at Eastlands, despite the potential of unlimited funds being at the manager's disposal courtesy of the club's owners, the Abu Dhabi United group.
