Jose Mourinho’s situation at Manchester United places former club on red alert

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly a candidate to replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, along with Chelsea’s Antonio Conte and Germany boss Joachim Low.

Club president Florentino Perez is considering replacing Zidane in the near future as the Frenchman struggles to maintain his fine start at the Bernabeu with a dip in performances this term, according to Don Balon.

The report claims Mourinho is one name Perez is keeping an eye on, particularly with recent speculation suggesting the Portuguese’s future at Old Trafford is in some doubt.

The Sun have recently claimed Mourinho has held talks with PSG, but a return to the Bernabeu would be a real surprise given the way his first spell with the club ended.

The 54-year-old endured a disappointing final season with the club and appeared to lose the dressing room due to falling out with some big names in his squad.

It remains to be seen if the fans would warmly welcome him back to Madrid, but Perez is understandably keeping him in mind due to his tremendous experience and proven winning record at the top level.
