Jose Mourinho is putting himself forward for the Chelsea job, the Daily Mirror say.
Owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly made Barcelona’s Pep Guardiola his first choice, but it is claimed that Mourinho is on the shortlist to make a dramatic return to the club he managed from 2004 to 2007.
The Mirror suggest the Chelsea hierarchy have made enquiries and believe he would like to return to Stamford Bridge.
The Guardian report that Guardiola has played down the prospect of him leaving the Nou Camp for SW6.
Meanwhile, The Sun say Chelsea are continuing to track Standard Liege hotshot Michy Batshuayi.
The striker, 18, is also believed to have attracted interest from Barcelona.
