With Zinedine Zidane said to be under pressure at Real Madrid, it is believed a significant number of the club's players do not want Jose Mourinho to replace the Frenchman should at the club.
The Portuguese tactician managed Los Blancos between 2010 and 2013, winning three trophies while in charge of the Spanish giants, including the LaLiga title.
He has since been linked with a return to the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners, following Real's tricky start to the 2019/20 season.
President Florentino Perez is known to be a massive fan of Mourinho, and reports suggest he is the man Los Blancos chief will turn to if things do not improve.
However, the former Manchester United boss' chances of one day managing the club again might not be good, with Marca reporting that some of the team's senior members do not want to see him replace Zidane.
It has been claimed that the players want to stick with the 47-year-old Frenchman, especially after the club's managerial changes that included Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari last season.
Mourinho has been heavily linked with a return to Real as well as other big European clubs such as Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur.
