The Special One has also been left thoroughly underwhelmed by his attacking options of late, relying heavily on Romelu Lukaku.

Following last week’s 1-0 loss to Brighton, Mourinho slated Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial for their sub-par form.

However, should a Premier League move materialise, Vazquez may need to be dragged kicking and screaming.

“When they proposed [the return] to me it was like seeing a lifetime’s work rewarded.

“I am very happy at Real Madrid, it is the team that formed me as a player and I hope I can stay for many years.”

Vazquez, 26, has been at Real since 2007 and has gone on to make 134 appearances in all competitions, scoring 16 times – to go with six Spain caps.
