Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is concerned Jose Mourinho will return to Chelsea and says the rest of the Premier League should be concerned of what he could do with the squad.

Mourinho took over at Chelsea in 2004 and famously conquered Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles, achieving the most points in Premier League history (95). 

Wenger fears that Mourinho might have the same effect when he returns to the Blues and believes they will have a very busy summer.

“I’m afraid of what Chelsea can do in the summer. We have to be prepared for them to be one of the biggest movers in terms of investment once the window opens," Wenger told Eurosport.

“Even though they already have a great base to their squad, notably their young players such as Oscar, Juan Mata, Ramires and Eden Hazard, I think they will be busy during the transfer window.

“I think Chelsea currently have a great coach in Rafa Benitez, but if they part ways at the end of season, of course Jose Mourinho would be a good solution for Chelsea.

“Mourinho is one of the best in the world. But I consider Benitez to be doing a good job at Stamford Bridge," Wenger added.

Arsenal also need to spend in the summer to be able to compete for long overdue silverware next season but, financially, they can not compete with the west London outfit. 

The Frenchman will be especially worried of the calibre players such as Atletico Madrid’s Radimel Falcao – who Mourinho intends to make his first signing at the Bridge.
