According to reports, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has already approached Jose Mourinho about making a sensational return to the Bernabeu.
That is the sensational claim from ex-Real president Ramon Calderon who insists Mourinho is the top choice to replace Santiago Solari who is under massive pressure after the club crashed out of the Champions League to Ajax this week, losing 4-1.
Real are likely to wait until the summer but Mourinho is understood to be keen on the job he left in 2013 having previously spent three seasons in the Spanish capital.
Calderon said: “I have no doubt Mourinho is the first option for the president.
He’s been called in the last few weeks. I think there will be many chances that he will be on the bench next season.”
