Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho wants huge money to return to Chelsea. The Sunday Mirror says Mourinho will demand a £12million-a-year salary to re-take the Chelsea job.

The Special One has set a special price to return to his Stamford Bridge throne, which would also hinge on the Blues qualifying for the Champions League.

Mourinho and Blues owner Roman Abramovich have long since buried their differences, and the former has made no secret of his desire to return to English football now his time at the Bernabeu is almost certainly coming to an end.

Chelsea's future revolves around them finishing in the top four this season as that will help them attract big players - and, even more ­importantly, Mourinho.
