I thought I read somewhere that Mourinho would have to be bought out of his Real Madrid contract. If that's right, that doesn't seem like a Man U move. Not that they don't have the money, but they don't seem to like burning money for the fun of it.
I'm not sure about him needing to be bought out or not. There have been rumors for months that he was getting canned at the end of the season. The rumor of him going back to Chelsea seemed to be widely reported and accecpted like it was going to happen and then SAF announced his retirement. Now that Moyes is taking over at Old Trafford it seems most likely that Jose will end up back at Stamford Bridge.
Yeah, buy-out or not, I bet Mourinho is back at Chelsea next year. My dislike of them was starting to soften a bit, since Terry seems to be getting phased out, and I like watching the Oskar, Mata, Hazard trio play, but Mourinho going back there will reverse that.
