Mourinho set for reshuffle
High on the agenda is to secure a long-term successor to Ashley Cole, the newspaper claims.
The 100 cap international is now 32-years-old and Mourinho is rumoured to be interested in taking Fabio Coentrao with him from Real Madrid, which would see a fee of around £20million for the wing back.
Another problem which will need to be addressed is Chelsea’s striker shortage, with Fernando Torres and Demba Ba the only centre forwards currently in the squad.
One option for Mourinho would be to call Romelu Lukaku back to the squad after a hugely successful loan spell at West Bromwich Albion last season, scoring 17 league goals.
The 50-year-old Portuguese is expected to bring his goalkeeper coach Silvino Louro, which could see current goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon heading for the Stamford Bridge exit.
With Mourinho’s return to Chelsea imminent many fans will be excited at the prospect of mounting genuine title challenges again.
