The former Chelsea man was manager at Real Madrid from 2010 until 2013, winning a Copa del Rey and La Liga title during his time there.

However, there is one reason Mourinho might shun a return - because of his struggles in his final season in Spain.

After the culmination of the 2012/13 season Mourinho claimed it was ‘the worst of my career’.

That season Madrid had lost the La Liga title which they had won the previous year, at the hands of Tito Vilanova’s Barcelona.

After missing out on the title Madrid still had a shot at glory - the final of the Copa del Rey.

To Mourinho’s dismay Los Blancos threw away the lead to lose 2-1 to a Diego Costa inspired Atletico Madrid.

"This year's campaign was a failure but my first two seasons were successful,” Mourinho said.

"This was the worst season of my career.”

The failure of his final season in Spain could leave Mourinho shunning a move back to Madrid or wanting to banish the memory of that painful final season.

The Portuguese recently hinted that he is considering a return to the Spanish capital.

"When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club it is a tremendous honour,” Mourinho told Record.

“I felt it when I returned to Chelsea.

"When a coach or a player he comes back, it means we did something positive.”

“It's not a gamble in the dark, the clubs are trying to hire a player or a coach they know, they've already been there, and if they invite you it's because they know the value of the person."
