Former Manchester United manager José Mourinho is set to be confirmed as Real Madrid manager before the end of January.
According to Sport Mole, the Portuguese manager who was sacked by the Red Devils last year is set to re-join the Santiago Bernabeu outfits.
Madrid are totally different from the team who won last season’s Champions League title, no thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane’s departure prior to the start of the season.
They currently occupy the fifth position in the La Liga standings, 10 points off League leaders and arch-rival Barcelona.
Santiago Solari’s men were defeated 2-0 by Real Sociedad last weekend and it is believed that another defeat could cost the manager his coaching job.
Having passed through some crises with his employers at Old Trafford over transfer issues, José Mourinho has given Madrid president Florentino Perez one condition for his services.
In the report, the former Chelsea manager wants the freedom to sign any player of his choice without any interference from the board members.
Mourinho will surely overhaul the whole squad by selling most of the tired legs in the team before signing some players whom he trust and can rely on.
Should the Los Blancos president and his cabinets agree to Mourinho’s condition, we could be seeing the Portuguese manager return to Santiago Bernabeu for the second time in his successful coaching career.
It should be recalled that the ‘special one’ — as he fondly calls himself — spent three seasons with the club as he led them to one La Liga and one Copa del Rey trophy.
Tottenham Demand £20m For Man Utd Target
North London club Tottenham Hotspur have placed a £20m transfer fee on one of their defenders.
According to Sky Sports News, Spurs want a £20m asking price for Danny Rose who has been transfer-listed at the club.
Danny Rose is a previous transfer target for Manchester United and the England international is attracting the interest of clubs like French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and German Bundesliga side Schalke 04 at the moment.
Danny Rose could have played his last game for Tottenham Hotspur if the Englishman is sold this summer.
His last appearance would be the Champions League final at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid at the start of last season.
Rose was a starter as Spurs were beaten 2-0 by fellow Premier League club, Liverpool.
The Reds won their first Champions League title in 14 years courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah (penalty) and Divock Origi either side of the halftime interval.
Danny Rose and Spurs featured in the Champions League final for the first time in their history.
He was linked with the Red Devils during last summer’s transfer window but Luke Shaw has been able to establish himself as the first choice left-back at the club.
Spanish Giant Agree €25m Deal To Sign Liverpool Target
Spanish club Real Betis have agreed on a deal to sign Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir during this summer’s transfer window.
The Real Betis agreement for Liverpool target Fekir was confirmed by French journalist Romain Collette-Gaudin.
It was revealed that Real Betis have agreed on a €25m fee for Nabil Fekir and that the player has also agreed to a five-year contract with the Spanish club.
Nabil Fekir will complete his transfer to Real Betis once Giovanni Lo Celso has been sold.
Real Betis midfielder Lo Celso is attracting the interest of clubs like Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.
The 23-year-old recently represented Argentina at this year’s COPA America tournament.
Giovanni Lo Celso and Argentina finished the tournament in the third position behind runners-up Peru and hosts cum eventual winners Brazil.
For Nabil Fekir, he has one year left on his contract at Lyon.
The former French champions have to sell him this summer to avoid losing him for free next summer when his Lyon contract expires.
Fekir came close to signing for Liverpool last summer in a £50m deal only for the Reds to pull out of the transfer.
Liverpool were skeptical about his knee and that led to the collapse of the said transfer.

Chelsea target Hysaj is on the right-back shortlist alongside AS Roma defender Alessandro Florenzi.
Spurs are in the market for a new right-back after Kieran Trippier joined Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid earlier on Thursday.
The England international star was unveiled as an Atletico Madrid player alongside Spanish centre back Mario Hermoso.
The 28-year-old was the first choice right-back at Spurs until this summer.

According to the publication from popular Italian transfer news portal Calciomercato, Manchester United want to sign young Italian player.
The Red Devils have joined fellow Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign the player rated at £25m.
Apart from the Premier League duo of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, Nicolo Zaniolo has also been linked with a move to Italian Serie A champions Juventus.
The 20-year-old has been able to make his mark on Italian football in a short space of time.
Nicolo Zaniolo has spent just one season as an AS Roma player on the back of his move from fellow Italian top flight club Inter Milan.
Roma signed him in a swap deal which saw Radja Nainggolan move in the other direction with Inter Milan paying more money.
His best game for AS Roma came in the Champions League clash with Portuguese Super League giants FC Porto.

Spanish Giant Offer Six Players In Bid To Sign Man Utd Target
Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona have offered six players in the bid to sign Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Neymar according to the latest media reports.
Barcelona want to sign the PSG star this summer and they are ready to offer some of their players in a swap deal.
According to Sky Germany, Barcelona have offered six players in their quest to sign Neymar.
The Catalan giants have offered €100m (£90m) plus two out of the six players offered by Barcelona.
Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Nelson Semedo, Ivan Rakitic, Malcom, and an unnamed player.
Neymar wants to return to Barcelona after two years in Paris.
The 27-year-old became the most expensive player on the back of his move to PSG from Barcelona.
PSG paid €222m for his transfer and the French giants want a similar amount for the player to return to Barcelona.
Neymar has already told senior PSG officials that he wants to return to the Nou Camp after an injury-hit year at the club.
He has scored 51 goals in 58 appearances for PSG over two seasons.
The Brazilian national team player spent four years at Barcelona and he scored 105 goals in the process as well as win the 2015 Champions League title.
Crystal Palace Want Carl Jenkinson As Replacement For Aaron Wan-Bissaka
South London giants Crystal Palace are reportedly plotting a move for Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson this summer.
According to the Daily Star, Crystal Palace want to sign the Arsenal right-back as a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
England junior international Wan-Bissaka made his breakthrough at Crystal Palace last season.
He made 35 appearances in the Premier League and the young defender was one of the best right-sided defenders in the top flight of English football.
His form for Crystal Palace earned the player a big money move to Manchester United this summer.
The Red Devils signed the 21-year-old in a £50m deal to make him the second summer signing at Old Trafford after Welsh international Daniel James.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the fifth most expensive player in the history of the club.
Only the quartet of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Angel Di Maria and Fred have been involved in more expensive transfers.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has already made his debut for Manchester United during the preseason tour of Australia.
He could be replaced at Crystal Palace by Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson who has just one year left on his contract with the Gunners.
The lifelong Arsenal supporter has been transfer-listed by Gunners boss Unai Emery.
€60m Asking Price Slammed On Arsenal Target
North London giants Arsenal have been dealt a major transfer blow in their pursuit of Barcelona winger Malcom after his club slammed an outrageous transfer fee on him.
The Gunners are one of many clubs interested in the young Brazilian player but the transfer fee quoted by Barcelona will almost certainly scare them away.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Barcelona won’t let Malcom leave the club permanently unless they receive €60m for him which will represent a profit of €19m.
Malcom became a Barcelona player last summer after the Catalan giants snapped him up from under the noses of Italian Serie A club AS Roma.
The Italian capital club had agreed on a deal with his then club, Bordeaux before Barcelona swooped in on him.
The 21-year-old has spent one year at Barcelona but he has not been able to nail down a spot in the first XI.
Malcom has been on the fringes of the first team at Barcelona and the recent arrival of Antoine Griezmann has pushed him further down the attacking order at the Nou Camp.
Apart from Arsenal, the Brazilian player has also been linked with a move to other Premier League sides like Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.
