Makelele made 217 Chelsea appearances and won two league titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups during his five-year spell with the club.
"I am very happy to come back home; this club gave me a lot and now I want to give back and help the young Chelsea players dreaming of a career in football," Makelele said.
"I want to use all my experience to help them become professionals in every aspect and I am looking forward to getting started."
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is confident Makelele will make a big impact, saying: "We are very pleased to welcome Claude back to Chelsea, where he made such an impact during five excellent years as a player.
