Former Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho has agreed to a four-year deal to coach Chelsea, according to Yahoo!’s Martin Rogers. Days after being relieved of his duties as the head coach of Real Madrid, Mourinho is expected to fly to London on June 2nd to complete the agreement with Chelsea.

The 50-year-old coach led Madrid to win three trophies as the head coach of Real Madrid including winning the Primera Division, Copa del Rey and Spanish Supercopa. This year, Real Madrid was knocked out of the Champions League by Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals and lost to rival Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey final. Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, revealed that Mourinho and the club mutually agreed to part ways once the 2012-2013 season comes to an end.

Chelsea finished third in the Premier League with a 22-9-7 record.

It seems the Chelsea fans love Mourinho. Players it seems, not so much. It'll be interesting to see how he meshes with the team.

He is back with the team that fired him! Everybody seems to forget that Chelski hit the all with him. I feel bad for Rafa Benetiz, I thought he did a good job under extremely tough conditions. Mouinho is far from a miracle worker, just tends to inherit talented teams and promote himself over his teams. Good luck battling it out for that #3 spot again.

No, you are the idiot, stupid, imbecile. Mourinho is a piece of shiite, the KIng of the anti-football, moron.

Another contract Mourinho will not honor till the end (or, more likely, will be fired.)  No doubt the Premier League is looking forward to this acrimonious, self-absorbed, pompous ...  Only Chelsea ... he complements this team of thugs well!

@albertorama @newshamg Never been a Chelsea fan or, of course, a Chelsea player. Not a fan of any team actually and never shall be.

But what you spouted was idiocy. "team of thugs"??? Yeah - that's brilliant argument for sure. By the way - it is compliment not complement.
