Real Madrid management are now leaning towards keeping hold of Jose Mourinho next season.

Punto Pelota says the board is now closer to "wanting Mourinho to continue than they were a month ago".

However, there remain seeds of doubt in the mind of Mourinho, though the offers to move away are drying up.

Real president Florentino Perez is tipped to talk with Mourinho during the week and offer him a steadfast public show of support on Saturday.
