Former Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho has finally decided to return to the Spanish La Liga giants, according to Spanish newspaper, AS.
The former Chelsea boss is watching developments at Real Madrid closely and believes there could be an opportunity for him to replace current manager, Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane’s men played a 1-1 disappointing draw against Real Valladolid last weekend at home.
Mourinho, who spent three seasons at Real Madrid, won one La Liga title during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 56-year-old has also managed in Italy as well as in his native Portugal with FC Porto.
Mourinho’s last managerial job was with Manchester United where he was sacked in December.
The Portuguese was close to tears during an interview few days ago as he admitted he missed football.
“I miss my football, I have the fire. The most difficult thing for me is to say “no” to the possibilities I had to work.
“I have to be patient and wait for the right one and the right one is one at the dimension of what I am as a manager.”
