Florentino Perez has sought information on the availability of Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho.

Perez is preparing to stand for this summer's Real Madrid presidential elections and is quickly putting together his football staff.

El Mundo Deportivo says he has made contact with Mourinho's agent, Jorge Mendes, about the Portuguese's situation and his interest in moving to Madrid at the end of this season.

For his part, Mendes did not shut the door on any negotiations.
