Just days after Jose Mourinho mutually parted ways with Real Madrid, he will be completing a deal to become Chelsea’s next manager, says Martin Rogers of Yahoo! Sports via Twitter.

This has been a heavily-expected move, with Mourinho having been rumored to be the next Chelsea manager ever since current Blues boss Rafa Benitez said he will not return after the end of the year.

Many have speculated on how a second stint with Chelsea will go for Mourinho, whose first spell with the London club ended in a firestorm of opinions.

June 2, the day Rogers says Chelsea will unveil Mourinho, is the last match of Real Madrid’s season.  Seems that will be a busy day for “The Special One.”

When the Mourinho-to-Chelsea rumors began, there were  many outlets reporting he had a wish list that he presented to as an ultimatum to chairman Roman Abramovich.  That wish list was rumored to have included players such as Falcao, Hulk, Sami Khedira, Angel Di Maria, Joao Moutinho, and Mouraine Fellaini.  Moutinho today has been reportedly sold to Monaco along with Colombian wonderkid James Rodriguez.
