Jose Mourinho has two conditions which he wants met before agreeing to return to Real Madrid, according to a report.

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly open to the idea of returning to Real Madrid, but the Portuguese has two conditions before agreeing to a second managerial spell.

Mourinho was sacked as United boss last month, but the 55-year-old is believed to be keen on a return to football following a short spell out of the game.

The Portuguese previously managed Madrid between 2010 and 2013, winning one La Liga title and one Copa del Rey crown during his time in the Spanish capital.

Santiago Solari is currently in charge of Los Blancos, but the team are 10 points off the pace being set by Barcelona in La Liga and performances this season have largely been disappointing.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Mourinho wants to return to Real, but he needs assurances over how much money will be made available to improve the squad.

Meanwhile, the report adds that Mourinho also wants to be able to strengthen in defence and attack - two areas where the European champions have struggled this season.

The well-travelled head coach had a win record of just shy of 72% during his time at Madrid.
