Manchester United and Jose Mourinho have broken their contractual relationship after a few months full of controversy and with the team 19 points behind Liverpool and 11 from the Champions League zone. Now, the English club have to pay a record compensation to the Portuguese, that run out of equipment in the middle of the season.
With this scenario, speculations about the new destination of the always controversial coach are inevitable. Some of the possibilities that gain more strength go through are the return of the Portuguese to one of his previous teams. The great stage experienced by Inter Milan with Mourinho in command and the footprint left in a Real Madrid adrift until his arrival could be the conditions for Mou to return to one of these two clubs in search of his best level in the benches.

Real Madrid: A door that never closed
Jose Mourinho was coach of Real Madrid for three seasons, from 2010 to 2013. His time in the white club was not far from the dream but Florentino Perez has not forgotten him. After the dismissal of Julen Lopetegui last October, and with the team breaking negative records, all the rumors pointed towards Jose and his possible return to the Spanish capital, with the help of Xabi Alonso. The multimillion-dollar compensation demanded by United distanced that possibility, which vanished when Madrid made official the continuity of Santiago Solari as the head of the team.
However, the results are only raising doubts about the continuity of the Argentine, who, despite having a contract until 2021, still looks like a mere formality. This, added to the hard hand that seems to need the white template before a more than obvious lack of attitude, could make Jose Mourinho return to the Bernabeu in summer.

Inter Milan: Go Back to the top
Inter Milan is another big European team that could seek his coaching because of their delicate situation. The Italians have taken a major disappointment to be eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League and Spalletti could have his days counted.
This has led to the name of Jose Mourinho resounding again between the stands of Giuseppe Meazza, a stadium in which the technician signed his best stage.
Mou arrived in Milan in June 2008, signing a contract for three seasons. Inter was proclaimed champion of the Supercup of Italy in 2008 against Roma and champion of Serie A 2008/09 with Mourinho.
But the next campaign would reach its peak, as Jose Mourinho won the treble with the Italian team in 2009/10 winning the Serie A Scudetto, the Coppa Italia, and the Champions League (eliminating Barcelona, who were the current champion).
Since his departure, Inter has hardly returned to have relevance in Europe, so the return of the Portuguese coach could mean the return to the elite of the club, as the coach himself.
PSG: The European Objective
The objective of the French team is to achieve the Champions League. Despite the arrival of Thomas Tuchel and a possible new league championship to win, the chances in Europe are further complicated by teams like Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona in the tournament. Therefore, in Paris, they are preparing for next year and the Portuguese coach can calmly be the man who needs this team to achieve what the Arab sheiks so much want.
