Chelsea appear to be making their move to reshuffle the club’s hierarchy, with Claude Makelele reportedly in talks over a return to the club.
According to claims from Euro United, the Frenchman is discussing a possible role at Stamford Bridge, with plans in place to make the former fans’ favourite an advisor at board level.
Chelsea seem to be targeting their former players to lead a new approach within the club’s infrastructure.
According to Euro United, Petr Cech could return following his retirement at the end of the season, while previous reports indicated that he will become the Blues’ new sporting director.

Makelele has coaching experience following a spell at Swansea City, but the emerging news regarding a possible return to West London is set to be solely on an advisory basis for the time being.
Why Makelele returning would be good news for Chelsea
Chelsea fans adore Makelele. Adding him to the hierarchy would help the club get the supporters on side as they enter a testing period.
Makelele would add a genuine footballing pedigree and knowledge at board level – something that has been missing for some time.
New ideas and a fresh outlook is required at Stamford Bridge. Makelele could help to provide the club with an improved plan for the future.
Chelsea have lost their way. Returning players such as Makelele can help to put them back on the right path.
