MEETING IN THE MIDDLE: In London, Martin Lipton reported Mourinho has been told "he will have to accept working under Technical Director Michael Emenalo" if he wants to return to Chelsea. He "raised the hopes and expectations of the Blues fans that he was on his way 'home' as he spoke warmly of the enduring 'love' from the Chelsea faithful." But "while the 'Special One' and his advisors have been involved in negotiations with the Chelsea hierarchy for months, his initial demands for 'full control' have been rebuffed." That could still end up sending Mourinho "in the direction of Paris St. Germain, who have also held talks with his agent Jorge Mendes and are likely to bend over backwards to offer the 50-year-old a deal he wants" (DAILY MIRROR, 5/2).
