Real Madrid and José Mourinho are talking about the Portuguese's potential return to the Spanish capital, according to reports from Cadena SER and EsRadio. Benítez will be sacked imminently and Mourinho would be the only possible choice not named Zidane, per those same reports.

Mourinho himself would be willing to sign for Real Madrid. The Portuguese manager doesn't think his relationship with the players would be a problem, but he's a bit worried about how the Spanish press would handle the situation knowing his reputation is not great.

Mourinho spent three turbulent seasons as Real Madrid's coach and found mixed success. His team fought with Barcelona but only won a Copa del Rey and a Liga BBVA title. He was sacked by Chelsea a few days back and rumors suggest that Manchester United would also try to sign him if Louis Van Gaal keeps getting bad results at the British club. Will he end up in Madrid?
