Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has not been contacted by Real Madrid over the vacant managerial position, sources have told Sport Witness.
The Spanish capital club won their third Champions League trophy in a row on May 26th. A week later, Zinedine Zidane, who guided them to their last three European triumphs decided to step down as manager.
Florentino Pérez and Madrid are in the process of finding Zidane’s successor, and Spanish outlet OK Diario reported the 13-time European champions have identified Mourinho as one of the candidates to replace the Frenchman.
Mourinho managed the La Liga outfit for three seasons between 2010 and 2013. The report claims Real asked Mourinho about his “contractual situation” with the Red Devils.
OK Diario also suggested the Spanish club have approached the United manager’s camp in order to find out if there is any possibility of the Portuguese tactician returning to the Santiago Bernabéu.
Sport Witness can reveal that Real Madrid have not contacted Mourinho’s environment or have asked if the former Chelsea manager is willing to rejoin them this summer. Mourinho signed a new contract at Manchester United earlier this year that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2020. He has no plans to leave the Premier League club.
