Real Madrid found a quality replacement for Zinedine Zidane as their new head coach in former manager Carlo Ancelotti.
However, Los Blancos tried luring Jose Mourinho back to the Santiago Bernabeu despite knowing that he recently took the Roma coaching job.
The former Chelsea handler has been without a job since Tottenham Hotspur severed ties with him over dwindling fortunes in their pursuit for European club competition.
But he wouldn't stay out of a job for so long as the Italian League giants appointed him their new boss on May 4 and his reign will begin at the start of the 2021-22 season.
Meanwhile, barely one month after he was named the manager of the Serie A club, Madrid came knocking with the aim of reuniting with the Portuguese handler once again as reported by Daily Mail and The Telegraph.
Sources claim Mourinho's representative had informed the Spanish club of their client's little interest in their offer and the 13-time Champions League winners had to turn to Carlo Ancelotti in the process
Zidane left his role as the head coach at the end of the 2020-21 season after claiming that the club had lost faith in him.
The Frenchman said this in the statement he made on social media a few days after walking out on them for the second time in a row.
