Jose Mourinho is set to make a sensational return to Real Madrid before this week runs out. This is according to a former president of the club, Ramon Calderon.
The Portuguese who managed the club from 2010 to 2013 is set to sign a three-and-a-half-year deal to take over from Santiago Solari.
“I understand Mourinho will sign a deal for the remainder of this season and for another three years, with a net salary of £17m per year, possibly as early as Monday.
“He will return because something needs to be done and president Florentino Perez believes Mourinho is the best man he can get at this time — one of the worst periods in the club’s history.”
“Mourinho will be the perfect shield against the unhappiness in the media, the fans and the players.
“But it will not be easy and I predict it will be very difficult over the next three months.”
