Real Madrid is likely set for a reunion with Jose Mourinho in the summer, but the Portuguese wants a few assurances before accepting the job.
The former Chelsea boss was sacked by Manchester United in December following a 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool, which was the last nail into the coffin that put an end to Jose's stint at the Old Trafford.
Real Madrid was one of the clubs which did not sack Mourinho, but the coach apparently left as a reason of chaotic relationships with some of the key players in the dressing room.
