Jose Mourinho could return to haunt Man Utd as Real Madrid boss after huge £15m payout



The Portuguese manager was sacked by the Red Devils in December just two days after a 3-1 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool.Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Mourinho who managed the La Liga giants from 2010 to 2013.

The Daily Mail report that having been fully paid off on leaving United, he would be free to take the Bernabeu hot seat once again.

A source close to Mourinho revealed last night: “There are no issues over Jose’s contract with Manchester United.
“Everything has been sorted. Jose is able to take on another job right now, but is in no rush.

“He is very relaxed about it and would be happy to wait until the end of the season if he needs to.”

Mourinho could potentially come back to haunt United in the Champions League should he take charge of any of the other remaining 15 sides.

Despite losing two of their Group G games, Real Madrid finished top and will face Ajax in the round of 16.

But Los Blancos are struggling domestically and are 10 points adrift of La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Current boss Santiago Solari was appointed when Julen Lopetegui was sacked in October last year.

Despite recently winning the Club World Cup, the former Real midfielder is coming under increased scrutiny in his role.

He was castigated by the Spanish press for recently suggesting that Real Madrid shouldn’t undervalue draws even against lesser opposition.
Solari was in defensive mode when suggesting should he not be expected to win every single La Liga match this season.

United, meanwhile, have rediscovered their form since replacing the ‘Special One’ with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Swashbuckling performances under the former Manchester United striker have resulted in five consecutive wins, scoring 16 goals in the process.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is joint-favourite with Mourinho to be the next Real Madrid manager.
