Fasten your seat belts for the Real Action!! 

With only 2 losses and leading by 7 points against their bitter rivals Barcelona ; 2011-12 is turning out Mourinho’s breakthrough season as Los Blancos manager.The Castilian lead is now commanding and, at the rate ‘those’ clubs drop points, almost unassailable.

But along this smooth sail ,an unsuspected question has risen

What does the future hold for Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho?
If it is to be believed, answer to this is :’Jose Mourinho is done At Real Madrid’!

The news floated during the same week Barcelona eliminated Real Madrid in the Copa Del Rey, the latest in the seemingly endless series of classicos.The cries of the fed up Real Madrid fans asking for a change from the negative tactics often deployed by Mourinho against Barcelona which most of time results in team losing to Catalans also have drastically risen ultimate pinnacle.

There is a real hypothesis that we will see Jose Mourinho pacing the touch-line and celebrating a goal by sliding on his knees in the technical area of a Premier League club next season and not the Bernabeu.So what all major options self-acclaimed ‘Special One’  Jose Mourinho have in the English premier league.

  A Chelsea return: Mourinho, It was him leading the Blues to back-to-back titles in the last decade and could be set for a second stint at Stamford Bridge.He still loves this club and is still loved by the fans.Meanwhile Andre Villas-Boas, Chelsea boss is already under pressure at Chelsea, as the club are fourth in the Premier League ladder and 12 points behind Manchester City and United.

Rumours of Mourinho making a comeback to premier league has turned on the heat on AVB, fireball formation won’t take much time with Roman Abramovich on bridgehead.

Mourinho with Gunners : There are rumors in Madrid and London that Real Madrid want Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to replace Mourinho at the Bernabeu.That would leave an opening at the Emirates. Is this swap possible?

A Grand Old Trafford entrance :Mourinho has always shown a great desire to manage the worlds most famous club. But this is only possible if Sir Alex Ferguson chooses to step aside for the ‘Special One‘.

It would appear that the chances of Sir Alex Ferguson stepping down this summer are very limited, since the Scot announced last year that he could see himself remaining in his Old Trafford post for another three years.

On the other side of the pitch ,maybe Mourinho is the man to manage the club(Los Blancos) over an extended period and it would only make sense considering his track record and the amount of money that they invested in the current squad that he wanted tacked together.Time will tell regarding the fate of Real Madrid’s much malefic coach, yet one thing is for certain – Mourinho vs. the world is far from over. This “Special” experiment may show results this summer.
