Speculation has been pretty high that Jose Mourinho would leave Real Madrid at the end of this season no matter what happens, but now it appears that it has been made official by both parties.
With Madrid 13 points behind in the league, the whole season depends now on the performance in the Champions League, a trophy which he will be desperate to win as will the head honchos at Madrid, who are obsessed with getting their tenth European title.
Mourinho, according to the report on Spanish radio station Cadena Ser last night, is already in contract talks with another club, with all the focus now on who that club could be.
With a certain vacancy at Chelsea opening up in the summer and a probable one at Manchester City, as well as frequent overtures from the Portuguese as to his love of the English game, we can guess with a fair degree of certainty that he’s headed to the Premier League, but you never know, Mourinho is full of surprises.
Could he be on his way to United? Stranger things have happened. I guess we’ll know in 70 days time.
