Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly open to a return to Real Madrid, but he has two conditions.
Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is understood to have remained a huge fan of the Portuguese coach despite his departure in 2013.
The UEFA Champions League holders are struggling to find their form in LaLiga this season and fell 10 points behind bitter rivals FC Barcelona in the table following their latest defeat.
The 2-0 loss at home to Real Sociedad also saw them drop out of the Champions League spots, which has reportedly alerted Perez and put coach Santiago Solari under pressure.
The former Castilla (Real Madrid-B) boss replaced Julen Lopetegui as Real's head coach in October but has since struggled to improve the form of the team.
As a consequence, Perez could look to Mourinho as savior of the season. However, the 55-year-old, who has been sacked by Manchester United in December, is believed to have two demands before accepting a job.
According to the Mirror, Mourinho wants assurances over how much money he can spend and has reportedly told Perez he wants to be able to strengthen the squad in defence and attack.
