Chelsea Transfers: 5 Players Jose Mourinho Would Bring To Stamford Bridge

could be about to make a very special return to Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho enjoyed tremendous success with the Blues and helped smooth over their transition from Premier League "nearly men" into title winners in the formative years of Abramovich's take-over of the club in 2004.
