Inter's Portuguese tactician has been targeted by Los Merengues' presidential candidate, Florentino Perez, to take over from Juande Ramos in the summer, AS state, and has been asked what it would take to tempt him.
The Spanish paper believes that if Perez accepts Mourinho's demands to have complete control of the team and to hold regular meetings with him about transfer dealings then he could consider the role.
But the former Chelea boss also wants a maximum of 23 players in his first-team squad and at least the same €10 million-per-year contract on offer at Inter.
Also, if a player joins Madrid with a better contract than his or an existing star is given a rise to earn more than the trainer, then his salary will rise accordingly.
Mourinho, who has guided the Nerazzurri to a fourth straight Serie A title in his maiden season in Italy, had admitted to being tempted by the Merengues job, but insisted he had a 99.9 per cent chance of staying put at San Siro next season.
Corriere dello Sport have suggested that the so-called ‘Special One’ has accepted an offer from Beneamata president Massimo Moratti to extend his current contract by one more year, with an option for a further season.
Mourinho has also allegedly scored a hefty pay rise that will see
him earn around €10 million per season and the parties have also
decided to scrap the escape clause, which was included in his contract
last summer, which would have allowed him to walk away by paying a €7m
