Former Chelsea favourite Jose Mourinho is all set for a sensational return to Stamford Bridge as the successor to ‘interim’ Rafael Benitez – and the news only gets better for Blues fans.

Not only will the club’s most successful manager of all time be returning like the prodigal son he is – he will also be bringing Cristiano Ronaldo with him – or so say reports.

Chelsea have endured a lacklustre campaign since the unpopular Benitez ousted Roberto Di Matteo of the reigns last November. They fell at the Champions League group stages, dropped into the Europa League, are in danger of relinquishing the FA Cup and are miles away in the Premier League.

Unrest continues to fester on the terraces on the back of a damaging 2-1 defeat to strugglers Southampton yesterday, and a top four finish is far from guaranteed.

But is the tide about to turn?

It is looking increasingly likely that Mourinho will replace Benitez in the summer, with all the expectation’s he will bring the glory days back to the West London outfit.

Might he also be bringing a few Real Madrid stars with him?

Here, we take a look at 5 Real stars who could be about to make the move to Stamford Bridge.
