LONDON, December 16- Roman Abramovich will be forced to pay Jose Mourinho more than £40m (Sh6,138,993,988.41) if he fires the Chelsea manager at an emergency board meeting on Wednesday.

Abramovich will hold more talks with his management team — Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia, Eugene Tenenbaum and Michael Emenalo — about Mourinho’s future.

When the Portuguese returned to the club in 2013, the board voted 3-2 in his favour. It will be another close call.

Buying out his four-year, £250,000 (Sh38,368,712.43)-a-week deal is one of the main reasons behind the reluctance to sack Mourinho so soon after agreeing a new contract.

Mourinho agreed to sign a new deal towards the end of last season but the club waited until August before officially announcing the new agreement.

After winning the title so comprehensively, Chelsea believed Mourinho was the world’s greatest manager and agreed a straight four-year term without negotiating a settlement clause in case they were forced to sack him.

Although Abramovich will meet the £40m compensation package if necessary, it would be the second time he has forked out a small fortune to get rid of Mourinho.
