Speaking on Spanish radio, the journalist José Ramón de la Morena has insisted that Real Madrid coach José Mourinho is to leave the Santiago Bernabéu hotseat this summer. In declarations on the radio station 'Cadena SER', De la Morena assured listeners: "At the beginning of January, Mourinho signed an agreement [with Madrid] to leave the club at the end of the season, whatever happens. Both he and the Real Madrid president [Florentino Pérez] know this for sure, but understandably they don't want to admit this nor go public with it."
During his radio programme 'El Larguero' on Sunday, De la Morena added: "There are 11 games to go in the La Liga season, and there are 11 La Liga games to go in Mourinho's career at Real Madrid. He's leaving in the summer. For this reason, he hasn't participated in Real's preparations for the coming pre-season, while he also hasn't been involved in discussions about the club's tour to China - and he isn't interested."
De la Morena also shed light on the Portuguese coach's next managerial step, saying: "He has already signed a deal with his next club. Whatever he wins this season, he isn't going to continue at Madrid."
