Chelsea seem to have finally found a replacement for Rafael Benitez in Real Madrid Manager Jose Mourinho under whom The Blues once won many titles.

Jose Mourinho, 50, who is set to end his career as Real Madrid manager by the end of this season, has struck a £40 million four-year deal with Chelsea on Tuesday night, according to The Sun.

"It's official - Jose is a Chelsea man again! Everyone is delighted he's coming back - the club, the players and the fans. We are already looking forward to next season - we are sure it's going to be very exciting," a source from the Blues told The Sun.

It was earlier reported that the former Chelsea coach could return to Stamford Bridge after Rafael Benitez quit. Speculations were also rife that Mourinho would replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United before David Moyes was confirmed as the new coach.

Jose Mourinho, who was the manager of Chelsea from 2004 to 2007, is perhaps the most successful coach for the Blues till date. The club won two Premier Leagues, two League Cups, FA Cup and Community Shield under him.

He had also worked with clubs like Benfica, Uniao de Leiria, Porto, Chelsea, Internazionale and Real Madrid, and is considered to be one of the best coaches in the world.
