Mourinho has been linked with a Bernabeu return for several months because of Zinedine Zidane’s struggles in his own second spell at the club.

The former Chelsea boss, 56, told friends he is confident of being offered the post if and when Zidane goes.

But the TV pundit also confided he would not necessarily accept, partly because of the possibility of taking over at Spurs.

Mauricio Pochettino’s future in North London is uncertain barely five months since he took the club to their first Champions League final.

If Pochettino, 47, were to resign or be sacked following the team’s poor start to the season, Tottenham’s options for an immediate replacement would be limited.

And Mourinho would be interested in talking to the club.

Pochettino himself is a long-term target of Real president Florentino Perez.

And it could be a neat solution for all concerned if he went back to Spain to take charge at the Bernabeu, with Mourinho replacing him at Spurs.
