Mourinho lands job as TV pundit

Jose Mourinho Free For Real Madrid Return As Manchester United Pay Compensation Reports

"There has been no contact, but they did get in touch with Jose after (Julen) Lopetegui was dismissed (in late October)", the Mail reports the source as saying.

Wary of missing out on the tournament next season, it's been rumoured that Real will look to the Portuguese - a former manager of Los Blancos, of course - in the coming weeks or months to attempt to steady the ship.

Jose Mourinho might have had a pretty miserable end to his 2018 but he could soon be back in charge of one of the biggest clubs in the world if rumours are to be believed. It now remains to be seen whether the Argentine can keep his job, or if the report indeed turns out to be true, with Mourinho replacing him at the helm at the Bernabeu. He turned down the approach at the time, but circumstances have obviously changed. There are no longer any ties to Manchester, and it looks as though Jose already has his eyes on his next move.

Madrid are having a particularly bad time at the moment, with interim manager Santiago Solari struggling to illicit the same response that Zinedine Zidane did when he was promoted from youth coach to senior manager, and president Florentino Perez is said to be keen to install an authoritarian like Mourinho to return the discipline to a listless squad. When a coach or a player comes back [to an old club], it means we did something positive.

But, Mourinho could indeed be primed for a quick return to club football management, with one of his former clubs showing an interest in him.

"I have learned that, when you leave a club, you don't go around talking about it, you don't wash your dirty laundry in public". One would hope, however, that they make the most of having the two time Champions League victor on the show and ask some of the hard-hitting questions that football fans no doubt want to hear answered.

While he may be keen on Madrid, Mourinho has however ruled out a return to his homeland to manage Benfica by describing it as a "closed chapter".
