Next Real Madrid Manager: Jose Mourinho favourite for a return to the Bernabeu

The Portuguese has been out of work since leaving Manchester United in December but could be in line to make a shock return to the Spanish capital

The era of Santiago Solari appears to be all but over after Real Madrid crashed out of the Champions League in a 4-1 loss at home to Ajax.

Los Blancos only needed a draw at the Santiago Bernabeu after winning the first leg 2-1 in Amsterdam, but a masterclass from Dusan Tadic condemned Real to a fourth consecutive home loss.

Two of those defeats came against Barcelona with one coming in the Copa del Rey semi-final and one in La Liga, meaning Tuesday’s defeat to Ajax ends any chance of silverware for Solari.

William Hill make Jose Mourinho 11/10 (2.10) favourite to retake the hot seat in the Spanish capital, with the Portuguese having previously managed there from 2010 until 2013.

Mourinho was sacked from Manchester United in December 2018 although it remains to be seen if he could return to the club where he previously won a La Liga title and the Copa del Rey.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is available at 2/1 (3.0) but may take some prying away from the London club, who qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 4-0 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund.

However, Spurs’ Premier League challenge has faded over the last three weeks with two losses and a draw, and so the Argentine may move on to pastures new this summer in search of silverware.

Joachim Low can be backed at 5/1 (6.0) to make a return to club management after 15 years since his previous game in charge of Austria Wien.

Despite winning the World Cup in 2014, Germany crashed out of the 2018 edition in the group stages and were relegated from their Nations League group, too. Low, however, is under contract with the national team until 2022.

William Hill go 8/1 (9.0) on Massimiliano Allegri taking over in Madrid, whilst 10/1 (11.0) is available on any of Raul, Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte
