    Real Madrid is exploring the possibility of Mourinho’s return

    Real Madrid are on the lookout for a new manager following the shock resignation of Zinedine Zidane just five days after winning the Champions League for a third consecutive season.
    Los Blancos are keen to appoint another big name to lead their La Liga charge and have been linked with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp and Joachim Low.
    But with their efforts to prise the aforementioned names to the Spanish capital so far proving difficult, club president Florentino Perez is exploring the possibility of Mourinho’s return.
    Mourinho has just finished his second season in charge at United where he failed to win a single trophy.
    The 54-year-old only signed a new deal with the Red Devils in January that keeps him at Old Trafford until 2020, with the option of a further year.
    Mourinho won the EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season and is keen to continue his project of taking United back to the top of European football.
    But the former Chelsea boss could be offered a way out if Madrid come knocking that would see him take his seat in the dugout at the Bernabeu once more.
    Mourinho won La Liga, Copa del Rey and Supercopa de Espana titles during his spell at the European champions before returning to Chelsea in June 2013.
    When recently asked whether he saw himself staying at United for another five years, he said: "I would see myself doing it but the new concept of media, social media, the pundit industry, the way people can express and influence opinion, it is too much pressure - not just for the manager - but also for the club.
    "It is impossible for someone to resist for a long time, especially without any kind of success. To stay a manager, to have four or five years to try to get a trophy and to improve the team, I don't think you allow that any more."
