Sacked by Manchester United before Christmas, Mourinho has been linked with Santiago Solari’s job in recent weeks.
And Okdiario’s chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito, revealed: “Real Madrid has indirectly explored the signing of Mourinho, who would earn €18m net per season.
“The only thing is that the Portuguese coach has put two conditions: make a clearout of the squad and have full powers to do what he wants on the sports field. “Mourinho would be like crazy to return.”
Inda added: “The only doubt that Real Madrid has is that of the coaching staff that Mourinho had in his day, there is practically no one left, but if Mou returns to Real Madrid, Mourinho’s assistant and second coach would be Xabi Alonso, with whom he has an extraordinary relationship.”
