As Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea entertained the press before their highly-anticipated showdown tomorrow, there was one familiar face that had everyone on the edge of their seat, and no, it wasn't Mourinho.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become the number one target of many supporters, none more so than fans of PSG's opponents Chelsea.
Since the return of Mourinho to Stamford Bridge there have been a number of rumours linking the Swedish superstar with a move to London, despite nothing concrete ever coming to light. Apart from Mourinho calling the deal 'impossible' back in February this year.
Nevertheless, when there is still a chance of something happening, nevermind how remote, supporters will continue to dream. Which a number of Blues have done, despite the comments made by Mourinho.
However, this time it was straight from the horse's mouth, with the player insisting it would be 'impossible' to get him to England and he has nothing more to prove.
'I'm very happy with this situation, how it is here in Paris. The club is doing an amazing job to become like the other European top clubs.
''I've seen big changes in the two years, developments on and off the field that I haven't seen elsewhere. The people behind this project aren't aiming low or medium. These people aim more than high.
''I'm happy to be a part of this project and this development and so to come to England today is not a question that is brought up. My biggest chance to win the Champions League is to play with PSG.
He added: ''I think, first of all, it's impossible to get me to England. If you ask the people behind this project, I don't think they'd let me go. And with my own thinking, when I went to Milan [in 2010] I was speaking to some English clubs but didn't end up with me coming to England.
''The day I stop football, I won't look back and think 'maybe I should have played in England'. I have respect for the Premier League, a great competition with good individual players and I haven't been a part of it. But I've made stories in other countries. It's nothing that I regret.''
The 32-year-old will no-doubt be the centre attraction tomorrow night, which speaks volumes considering the talent on show. He has fast-become a Premier League fan's dream signing, even more so since he scored the infamous four against England, including the memorable bicycle kick:
