Report: Jose Mourinho in line for new and improved Chelsea contract

Jose Mourinho Chelsea

After winning the Premier League title and the League Cup, Mourinho is reportedly set to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is set to be offered a new contract after leading the side to the Premier League title in his second season back at Stamford Bridge, the London Evening Standard reports.

The Blues wrapped up the top-flight crown on Sunday thanks to a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, with that success adding to the other piece of silverware they won earlier in the season in the form of the League Cup - beating Tottenham 2-0 in the final at the beginning of March.

As a result, it is of little surprise that owner Roman Abramovich will move to secure the future of a manager who came pretty close to bringing the title back to Stamford Bridge upon his return to west London last season.

The Standard reports that his current deal at the club doesn't expire until 2017, but Chelsea are believed to be in advanced talks over fresh terms that could increase his £8.5 million per year salary.

After seeing his first spell at the club ended abruptly after three seasons the helm, fans will be pleased to see that Mourinho may be sticking around for a little longer this time around and is looking to work towards long-term targets.

Though Chelsea have enjoyed a lot of success during Abramovich's stewardship of the club, it appears that he would also like stability when it comes to managing the side, and at the moment there doesn't seem to be a better man for the job.
