According to reports, Jose Mourinho is rather keen on making a return to football management starting with a second spell at Real Madrid.

It appears that Jose Mourinho would be back in football management soon. And the place that would mark his return, could be Real Madrid where Zinedine Zidane’s future is in peril.

The French tactician, despite leading the team to so much glory a year ago, is a man whose career could be on the brink. Los Blancos are not doing too well at all and the former playmaker has really struggled to get the best out of a team that has no shortage of talent.

After facing a humiliation at the hands of PSG, the Madrid giants are apparently no more looking at their former player as the man to lead them towards yet another era of unprecedented success.

According to The Times, the club’s supremo, Florentino Perez is already eyeing a move once he decides to sever ties with Zidane.

Despite experiencing quite a turbulent time at the club, Jose Mourinho has a great relationship with Perez. The Portuguese tactician has never hidden his desire to return to football management and might even relish the prospect of managing a team whom he led to a La Liga crown during a time when Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona were a juggernaut.

Moreover, Mourinho believes that he has unfinished business at the club and would like nothing better than to take the reins of a club whose playing staff might need some shaking up.

It is clear that Zidane is struggling to get the best out of what should be considered a talented group of players. And with someone like Mourinho at the helm, Real Madrid might return to their usual best in no time.
