He reigned at Old Trafford for just two and a half years and won an Europa League and EFL Cup titles for the club.
Interestingly for a man who operates on something of a scorched earth policy when things are going badly for him in a job, the Portuguese manager has been nearly exclusively linked with clubs that he has already managed.
However, Real president Florentino Perez remains a fan and with the club 10 points behind La Liga leaders Barca and outside the Champions League places pressure is mounting on Solari, who could be relieved of his duties before his contract expires at the end of the season.
A source close to Mourinho revealed on Wednesday night: "There are no issues over Jose's contract with Manchester United".
"There has been no contact, but they did get in touch with Jose after (Julen) Lopetegui was dismissed (in late October)", the Mail reports the source as saying.
The amount United would be entitled to is £10m, which Real will have to fork over if they make Mourinho their manager before December 18, 2019.
Wary of missing out on the tournament next season, it's been rumoured that Real will look to the Portuguese - a former manager of Los Blancos, of course - in the coming weeks or months to attempt to steady the ship.
