Former Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster is being lined up for a return to Xerez.

Radio Marca says Schuster has been made an "irresistible" offer to make a shock return to his former club.

The German has been out of football since leaving Real last season, though has been linked with the jobs at Atletico Madrid and Valencia in recent months.

Xerez owner Joaquin Morales wants Schuster to take over in a management capacity, with more news expected in the coming days.
