While the return of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid was formalized this week, we learn that José Mourinho has also been surveyed.
According to The Telegraph, Florentino Pérez has indeed thought of a return to José Mourinho. Real Madrid management reportedly contacted the Portuguese coach, who finally opted for the challenge of AS Rome. There is nothing to confirm that Carlo Ancelotti would not have ultimately been preferred to Mourinho. But the latter would therefore have indeed been probed before the Italian, to take the place left vacant by Zinedine Zidane.
