Barcelona: Mourhino next manager?

Speculation mounts that Jose Mourinho is to take over at Barcelona in the summer

According to the Mail on Sunday, Mourinho is the overwhelming favourite of the Barcelona board to succeed Frank Rijkaard, should they dispense with the dutchman during the summer.

The Mail on Sunday is also reporting that Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba, will follow Mourinho to Barcelona, should the former Chelsea manager be appointed in the summer.

If the move goes ahead, and it all depends on current boss Frank Rijkaard's performance in the Champions League and the league in the next six weeks - Lampard is almost certain to join Barcelona. Drogba could follow, though AC Milan are also chasing the Ivory Coast striker.

Barcelona is the latest in a long line of clubs linked with Jose Mourinho. Footy Focus reckons his ultimate destination is not the Nou Camp, but Anfield! Not saying how we know!

Why is Lyon grandstanding on this? Shame on any club that did not approach Mourinho.
