The Portuguese was understood to be keen on returning to his former club, and even had a transfer wish list of four players he wanted to sign for Real, according to El Chiringuito.

It has been claimed that Mourinho wanted to take four Premier League superstars with him to Madrid, namely: David de Gea, Virgil van Dijk, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.
