Jose Mourinho deserves a chance to rebuild his reputation following his departure from Manchester United, as the 56, is reportedly set to make a sensational return as the new coach of Real Madrid this week.
The ex-Real Madrid president Roman Calderon revealed that Mourinho who spent three seasons with Los Blancos between 2010 and 2013 will sign a three-and-a-half-year deal to take over from Santiago Solari.
The Blancos, who have endured a testing 2018-19 campaign, are ready to part away with Santiago Solari. Once he has been relieved of his duties, source revealed that Zidane – who led Madrid to three successive Champions League wins and the Liga title – will be appointed for a second spell.
It’s believed that president Florentino Perez would like to make an interim appointment for now, before assessing the situation again in the summer. Jose Mourinho has been strongly linked with a return to the club.
“He will return because something needs to be done and president Florentino Perez believes Mourinho is the best man he can get at this time — one of the worst periods in the club’s history.”
“Mourinho will be the perfect shield against the unhappiness in the media, the fans and the players.
Calderon declared: “I understand Mourinho will sign a deal for the remainder of this season and for another three years, with a net salary of £17m per year, possibly as early as Monday.
