Jose Mourinho: Chelsea boss worked with Xavi at Barcelona

Paris-Saint Germain are to tempt Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho with a lucrative offer to take over the French champions at the end of the season.

The Sunday Express report that the 52-year-old Portuguese manager is the man the PSG owners have identified to help take the club forward in Europe after years of dominating the domestic scene.

Chelsea began to get their season back on track with a 2-0 victory against Arsenal on Saturday but, if they fail to capitalise on their second Premier League win of the season, then the pressure will soon be re-applied on the Blues boss who is in his third season in charge of the club after rejoining from Real Madrid.

Mourinho only signed a new four-year deal at Stamford Bridge in August, yet the Express also suggest that the ‘Special One’ would have been sacked had they lost to Maccabi Tel Aviv in their Champions League group opener in midweek.

Mourinho has drifted in the market to be the next Premier League to be sacked, but another bad run could ultimately see him weighing up other managerial opportunities on the continent.
