Mourinho to be named Chelsea manager on Monday: Perez
Madrid: Real Madrid president Florentino Perez claims Jose Mourinho will be confirmed as Chelsea`s new manager on Monday.
The 50-year-old took charge of his final game at the Bernabeu on Saturday as Real Madrid secured a 4-2 victory over Osasuna.
Mourinho, who guided Chelsea to two Premier League titles during his first stint at Stamford Bridge, is now set to be appointed as Rafa Benitez`s successor.
“Mourinho is going to Chelsea," Perez told Sky Sports News.
"Probably on Monday he will be their new manager. We wish him good luck.”
Madrid confirmed Mourinho`s departure in May and the Spanish club have named Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti as their first-choice candidate to succeed the Portuguese.
Mourinho endured a mixed reception during his final Real Madrid match as the club`s ultras unveiled two large banners reading `Mourinho, thanks for fighting through hell and high water`. The gesture was met with both whistles and applause.
