Jose Mourinho is reportedly holding talks with Real Madrid over a potential return to the club, and he’s already working on the additions he would get to the squad. Mou has been out of work since losing his job at Old Trafford last December, but rumors have grown claiming he could be making his comeback to the Spanish capital shortly.

According to Don Balon, the Portuguese boss is ready for a second stint with Madrid and that could happen in the next few days, as some reports suggest Zinedine Zidane’s second tenure with Los Blancos is nearing its end. However, if Mou is to replace Zizou, he’s told Florentino Perez that he’ll need some big signings to help the team, Don Balon add.

This report explains that the so-called ‘Special One’ has his eye on two Premier League-based Brazilians, Liverpool midfielder Fabinho, and Everton forward Richarlison to boost Real’s ranks as soon as possible. Liverpool’s Fabinho is one of the finest players in the world in his position and is a top target for Real given their current struggles.

This move would be a huge blow for Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool, who have lost some of their biggest stars to La Liga’s big two, including Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, Javier Mascherano and Xabi Alonso in recent years.

Richarlison, on the other hand, is a very promising and exciting young player that could take his game up a level with a move to a bigger club.

Mourinho hasn’t had the best few years as his spells at United and Chelsea ended badly, but he was a success at Madrid during his three-year stint at the Santiago Bernabeu and could be an upgrade on Zidane as the Frenchman doesn’t look capable of getting the best out of his players.
