Florentino Perez is desperate to get Jose Mourinho back at Real Madrid, according to the club’s former president Ramon Calderon.

Real Madrid could pounce for Jose Mourinho if he leaves Chelsea, claims former Bernabeu president Ramon Calderon, who also revealed that Rafael Benitez was only hired after three other candidates turned the job down.

Calderon claims Benitez only became Madrid head coach after Mourinho, Joachim Low and Jurgen Klopp had snubbed the chance to succeed Carlo Ancelotti.

But Mourinho – who steered Madrid to La Liga title glory in 2011-12 and is facing increasing scrutiny at Chelsea – remains a firm favourite of current president Florentino Perez, according to Calderon.
