Jose would 'love' to face Chelsea

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho would relish a Champions League final meeting with his former club Chelsea.

• UCL: Blues battle through, Real cruise

Real and Chelsea secured their places in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday night, with the former cruising to a 5-2 aggregate win over CSKA Moscow.

Chelsea, meanwhile, played out a thrilling encounter with Serie A side Napoli, as their second leg went to extra-time before Branislav Ivanovic netted a winner to seal a 5-4 aggregate triumph.

Mourinho, who has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge in the summer following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, has admitted he would "love" to take on the Blues at the Allianz Arena in May.

He told Sky Sports: "People can't understand how much I love Inter and Chelsea and how much I love the boys and how much I wish them well.

"I know, if I get them in the quarters, or semis, or final, they will be a great opponent. I am so happy for the boys [Chelsea players], because they have incredible character. They have had a hard time, but now happiness is coming."

Asked if he wanted to face Chelsea in the final, he said: "I would love [it]."

Real's Xabi Alonso would also welcome a meeting with Chelsea, although the Spaniard is suspended for the first leg of the next round after picking up a booking against CSKA.

The former Liverpool midfielder said: "We will see what happens in the draw. If we meet them, it is going to be exciting, because it is always good to be back playing in England.

"With the change of manager, they are getting good results. There is still a long way to go."
