With Santiago Solari reportedly facing the sack by the end of the season, former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has seemingly put his name in the mix to become the next Real Madrid manager.

The Portuguese coach was fired by United in December, and has been without a job since. However, he has made several guest appearances as a pundit on various football shows, and during his latest stint on beIN SPORTS, he spoke with high admiration for Los Blancos, whom he coached between 2010 and 2013.

"Real Madrid made something extraordinary in Europe in the last five years is absolutely incredible," he said.

"If you want to look at my time, we are speaking for about seven years, seven semi-finals. (For Real) five years, four finals and four victories, it's absolutely amazing.

"Then you go to the marathons of (the league) in being stable, being regular and being strong from August to May going to the championship.

"I think in the last 10 years they have won it twice so I think there is a big gap in the success in the knockout competition and not so much success in the marathons of the league."

The 56-year-old was also asked if he would go back to one of his former clubs.

"To (go to) a club that I have been before? If I think the right club, the right structure, the right ambitions, I will have no problem at all," he added

"I think it's really a reason of pride when a club where you worked before wanting you back.

"(But) the only moment when I had this feeling (so far) was with Chelsea, not with Real Madrid."

English pundits Richard Keys and Andy Gray continued to bring the conversation back to Los Blancos, with one of them saying "Real are still an iconic club", to which Mourinho responded: "They are the iconic club. The number one club in the world? I think so. You know, 13 Champions Leagues."
