Jose Mourinho: Backed to swap Real Madrid for Chelsea this summer

PSG boss favourite to succeed Mourinho

Sky Bet make Carlo Ancelotti the evens favourite to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, amid Spanish reports that the 'Special One' has confirmed his widely-anticipated departure.

The online bookmaker already expected the 'Special One' to return to the Premier League this summer, making him 2/5 to replace Rafael Benitez for a second stint as Chelsea manager.

Andre Villas-Boas had been backed into favourite to take the reins at the Bernabeu but has now drifted out to 7/4, with PSG boss Ancelotti attracting the majority of support in recent days.

Sky Bet's Chris Spicer said: "While Mourinho's departure looks nailed on, we're still fairly speculative as to who his replacement will be, with Ancelotti and Villas-Boas the two candidates attracting backing.

"Rafael Benitez (16/1) and Michael Laudrup (28/1) follow in the betting in what promises to be an intriguing summer, with Manuel Pellegrini backed into 3/1 to be the next Manchester City manager as speculation surrounds Roberto Mancini's future."

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
