Claude Makelele is being linked with a return to Chelsea.

With retiring Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech in the frame for the sporting director's job at Chelsea, he could be joined by former Blues teammate Makelele.

That's according to well-connected French outlet Euro United.

Makelele, currently coach of Eupen in Belgium, would return to London to join Cech in the front office at Cobham.

The World Cup winner would also act as an adviser to Blues owner Roman Abramovich.
