‘No way’ Mourinho will return

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has ruled out taking Jose Mourinho back to Stamford Bridge, according to The Sun on Sunday.

Abramovich is said to be interested in appointing Capello.

It is claimed that although Mourinho has been linked with the manager’s job at his former club, Abramovich has no intention of appointing him.

A Blues source is quoted as saying: “There is absolutely no way Roman will go back in for Jose — no way.

“Russians never go back, they replace things rather than fix them and they never admit they are wrong.

“While Roman continues to own the club people should forget about him returning.”

But The People claim that Abramovich is planning face-to-face talks with Mourinho to discuss his possible return.

The Sun on Sunday also say that Salomon Kalou, whose Chelsea contract expires this summer, is a target for Tottenham and Arsenal as well as Bayern Munich and clubs in France, Russia and Spain.

The Mail on Sunday suggest Fabio Capello is ready to return to England to manage in the Premier League, which will apparently alert Abramovich to the possibility of appointing him.

Meanwhile, Leeds boss Neil Warnock wants to sign Paddy Kenny from QPR, who are eyeing Robert Green and Ben Foster as potential replacements, according to The People.

Kenny, whose contract expires in 2013, was signed for Rangers by Warnock and also played under him at Sheffield United and Bury.

Warnock’s Loftus Road successor Mark Hughes was linked with Birmingham keeper Foster before the transfer deadline and it is now claimed that West Ham’s Green is also on his radar.
