Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho had said a few days back that he isn't sure about his future with the club, and if reports are to be believed, he could make a return to the English Premier League sooner than expected.
The statement made by Mourinho has stirred speculations that Manchester City has lined him up to replace Roberto Mancini if he fails to land the Premier League title this year.

The former Chelsea manager has endured a rickety relationship with the Real Madrid hierarchy, fans and players recently.
Reports of his bust-up with Sergio Ramos and captain Iker Casillas have been doing the rounds in recent days, the Mirror reported. Mourinho had in the past expressed his desire to make a comeback to the English Premier League and has already started to warm up to the idea of taking over at City.
In the past he had ruled out taking the job in Premier League and it is believed he was waiting for Sir Alex Ferguson to retire to take over his position at Manchester United. But he has now been forced to change his stance since Ferguson doesn't seem to be willing to leave yet.
