Jose Mourinho Free For Real Madrid Return As Manchester United Pay Compensation Reports

Jose Mourinho is free to negotiate his next job after being paid his compensation up front by Manchester United in December. His team won the Football League Super Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League.

The Daily Mail reports that a source close to Mourinho confirmed the compensation has been paid.

As reported earlier, 55-year-old Mourinho has been heading Manchester United since 2016. Everything has been sorted. "He is very relaxed about it and would be happy to wait until the end of the season if he needs to".

United sacked Mourinho on December 18 following the club's disappointing first half of the season and multiple reports of issues between the manager and players including star midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Portuguese specialist now has right to head another club.

Real Madrid, who the Portuguese coached from 2010-2013, have been heavily linked with a move to bring Mourinho back to the Bernabeu.

He would replace under-fire coach Santiago Solari, who is already the second man in the dugout at Madrid this season after Julen Lopetegui was sacked in October.

Solari, though, has failed to improve the club's form and come under pressure after Real fell out of the UEFA Champions League spots following their latest 2-0 LaLiga defeat to Real Sociedad.

The source added: "There has been no contact, but they did get in touch with Jose after Lopetegui was dismissed, but he told them he was the manager of Manchester United and totally committed to the club".

No one was surprised by his sacking, and Mourinho himself had spent the final months of his job looking like a man who had checked out ages ago and was simply waiting for his employers to run out of patience.

Vitoria had led Benfica to back-to-back League titles at the club but has seen his side struggle to keep pace with the likes of Porto this season.
