Real Madrid Former President, Ramon Calderon says they are making contact with Former United and club manager,Jose Mourinho as the best option to replace under pressure Santiago Solari at the Bernabeu, after losing back-to-back games to Barcelona and being axed out of Champions League by Ajax all in one week.
Just last week ,Mourinho, who left Real in 2013, disclosed that he was flattered to be linked with a return.
Calderon, while speaking to Sky Sports News said it is only a matter of time before it is official.
”I have no doubt Mourinho is the first option for the president. He’s been called in the last weeks.
”It was when Zinedine Zidane left, Mourinho was with Manchester United and he said it was not the right moment to come back, but maybe now he’s free.
”I think there will be many chances he will be on that bench next season.”
When asked about other potential candidates replacing Solari, he said;
”Maybe Mauricio Pochettino, they are talking about him. But there will be many in the next days because fans can’t accept this situation.
”There’s been three or four months moaning now, lamenting and regretting what we did planning this team.” he added
