Football rumours from the media Mar 11, 2019

What the papers say

Jose Mourinho could find himself back in football management this week, with Real Madrid interested in bringing the Portuguese to the Bernabeu, the Daily Mirror reports. Current boss Santiago Solari is under pressure after a shock Champions League defeat to Ajax and it is reported the former Manchester United manager will return to the LaLiga side on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

Defender Sergio Ramos will look to leave Real Madrid should Mourinho be installed as manager, the Daily Mail says. The club captain will be looking for a summer move when he will be one year from the end of his contract, the paper reports.

The race for the West Brom job is hotting up, with David Wagner and Carlos Carvalhal in the frame to replace the sacked Darren Moore, according to the Daily Mirror. The Baggies are looking for a promotion specialist and Wagner took Huddersfield to the Premier League while Carvalhal led Sheffield Wednesday to the play-offs twice.

However, the Daily Mail reports the Baggies will move for former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic.

Manchester United will look to reinforce their backline over the summer, with Benfica and Portugal defender Ruben Dias top of their wishlist, reports the Sun.
