Florentino Perez could be trying to convince Jose Mourinho to return to Real Madrid at the end of this season, Spanish digital newspaper Voz Populi has claimed.
According to this newspaper, the Los Blancos president is not happy with the performance of the team in the past few games. Moreover, he didn’t like the fact that Zinedine Zidane left Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and Danilo out of the squad for the game against Las Palmas.
After the dissapointing performance of the team in their last-minute 1-2 victory at Las Palmas, Perez held talks with several members of the board of directors, and according to Voz Populi their conclusion was similar: “This group of players can only be controlled by Jose Mourinho.”
Yet, according to the latest Real Madrid transfer rumors, Zidane has been requested to start planning the squad for next season, so it seems highly unlikely that he will leave in the summer.
The Los Blancos manager could let up to ten players go in order to completely renew the squad.
Mourinho, who spent three seasons at Real Madrid conquering one La Liga title, one Copa del Rey and one Spanish Supercup, has also been linked with Manchester United after being dismissed from Chelsea.
