Former Chelsea manager wants to come back to Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho has ready his sights on a come back to Real Madrid. The former Chelsea and Man United manager has been out of work since last December and recently joined Sky Sports’ punditry team.

Los Blancos are continuing to stumble under Zinedine Zidane, following up their opening day win over Celta Vigo with a disappointing draw against Real Valladolid last weekend. French coach returned to Santiago Bernabeu in turmoil in March but is yet to sufficiently steady the ship despite a host of big summer signings.

The Portuguese manager is watching developments at Real Madrid closely and believes there could be a chance for him to replace Zizoue. There was hardly a dull moment during Jose’s three-year spell at Real, but Mourinho only managed to win La Liga once while he was in charge.

The 56-year-old coach has been inundated with offers to come back to management, but Jose is ready to snub all proposals in the hope he could get the call from the Los Blancos. Jose will re-evaluate his future in winter if La Liga giants do not come knocking.

The Portuguese coach has already insisted he will come back to work in the dug-out, amid a difficult tenure at Old Trafford. ‘I have some time to think, to rethink, to analyse and what I feel is exactly that ‘Ze’ is full of fire,’ he said this summer.

‘My friends tell me: “Enjoy your time, enjoy your July, enjoy your August, enjoy what you never had”. Honestly, I can’t enjoy it. I am not happy enough to enjoy. ‘I miss my football, I have the fire.
