Jose Mourinho will quit Real Madrid in the summer and return to the Barclays Premier League, it has been claimed.

Real are currently seven points clear at the top of La Liga, but Mourinho has been beset my rumours of discontent among his players in recent weeks.

The 49-year-old also continues to endure a frosty relationship with the Spanish press and, it would appear, this has now become to much to bear for the former Chelsea manager.

“Jose is tired of this situation at Madrid,” a friend told the Sunday Times.

“It doesn’t matter if he wins this season or not. It’s not about the money. He’s decided to come back to England and he will go in the summer.”

Mourinho was appointed manager at the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2010 having led Inter Milan to an historic treble.

Although he failed to prevent Barcelona winning the league during his first season at the helm, Mourinho did guide Real to Copa del Rey glory - beating Barca in the final.

However, despite watching his side cruise to the top of the table this term in free-flowing style, Mourinho has been criticised for the negative tactics employed during the Classico defeats to Barca.

And it seems Mourinho has now decided enough is enough, and will pack his bags for England regardless of whether or not Real win the title.

The question now is where he will end up, and - according to the Sunday Times - Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham could all be potential destinations.
