But it is understood that Mourinho has no imminent plans to return to Portugal.

Real Madrid could be forced to delay the appointment of Jose Mourinho as their new manager over a compensation wrangle with Manchester United but new that Manchester United have given their green signal its totally up to Real Madrid to make a move for the Portuguese manager.

But the 55-year-old has ruled out a return to the Primeira Liga.

United sacked Mourinho on December 18 following the club's disappointing first half of the season and multiple reports of issues between the manager and players including star midfielder Paul Pogba.

Sunday's 2-0 defeat at home to Real Sociedad was Los Blancos' sixth of the season, which saw them fall 10 points behind league leaders Barcelona.

It was never going to be an easy season after both Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left but Julen Lopetegui had a nightmare time before being replaced by Santiago Solari.

But Mourinho is back in work after agreeing a deal with beIN that will see him cover Premier League and Asian Cup matches for the broadcaster.

"It's a tremendous honour when you return to a club where you've been, but I'm talking to you and I will not talk to anyone else".

But the manager was let go by the club due to their struggles in all competitions this campaign as they were sixth on the log before he was sacked.
