Mourinho emerging as target for Perez's Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho is emerging as a prime target for Florentino Perez's Real Madrid.

AS says Perez has held several meetings with his right-hand man Jorge Valdano about his plans to replace Juande Ramos.

AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti's interest is waning, particularly with Chelsea circling, while Arsenal's Arsene Wenger demands for total control also is a mark against him.

Mourinho, in charge of Italian champions-elect Inter Milan, is now fast emerging as Perez's top target.
