Packing for Chelsea? Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho spotted buying boxes and masking tape

Posted by - May 7, 2013 - Chelsea, Spain

Jose Mourinho has been spotted buying €200 worth of boxes at furniture store Ikea amid rumours he is packing ahead of a return to Chelsea.

The Real Madrid manager bought boxes, masking tape and other packaging at Ikea’s Alcorcon store, south-west of Madrid.

Spanish TV news reporters are certain that this can only mean one thing: Mourinho is boxing up his belongings as he prepares to quit Real at the end of the season. Just look at the billing the story got on the Punto Pelota show…

And if Mourinho needed any further reason to pack up his stuff, newspaper Marca is carrying the news that the Special One is only on speaking terms with three members of the Real Madrid squad. The reports suggest only Diego Lopez, Michael Essien and Luka Modric are talking to their manager at the moment.
