Real madrid latest transfer news : Real Madrid start Jose Mourinho talks
Jose Mourinho has been reached by Real Madrid about a return to the Bernabeu.
The Spanish giants are currently on their second manager this season and struggling in fifth – ten behind pioneers Barcelona – after a 2-0 annihilation to Real Sociedad.
Now, Perez believes Mourinho is the man to revive the club’s fortunes, in spite of his ongoing destruction at Manchester United.
The Special One has been in high demand since being sacked on December 18.
He has had four employment offers – including a return to Benfica, who he managed briefly in 2000 – which he turned down.
As it is, Mourinho cannot accept an offer at the moment as he is still trying to sort out his pay off with United.
Mourinho is due a £15million settlement and his agent Jorge Mendes has asked for a meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to deal with the last subtleties of the partition.
The ex-Chelsea chief spent two-and-a-half years at Old Trafford – winning the League Cup and Europa League.
He also guided the club to their highest league finish since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club when they came sprinters up to Manchester City last season.
