Report: Jose Mourinho set to commit to Chelsea until 2019 in coming weeks

José Mourinho Celebrates

After guiding Chelsea to another Premier League title and League Cup success, it seems as though Mourinho will commit his future to Chelsea very soon.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is set to sign a new contract at the club in the coming weeks, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Mourinho is expected to sign a deal that will keep him at the club until 2019, and there are thought to be no concerns from either the club or the manager's representatives, even though they are not ready to announce the agreement just yet. 

This will represent very good news for the club's fans after a successful season last term which saw Mourinho guide the side to Premier League title success, along with a League Cup triumph at the start of March to collect his first pieces of silverware since he returned to the club in 2013.

There have been worries that this spell in charge at the club could end like the first one, which saw Mourinho part company with the club in the early stages of what would have been his fourth season in charge, but the report suggests the negotiations are very different to those in 2007, suggesting those worries are unlikely to materialise. Instead it is said that Mourinho wants to be part of a long-term project.

After last season's title triumph, Chelsea are going to be favourites to defend their crown going into the new season as other sides chasing them will look to strengthen in order to wrestle the crown away from Mourinho and Stamford Bridge.

The one big trophy missing from Mourinho's collection during his time at Chelsea is the Champions League - something which he will be keen to address in the seasons ahead.
