Reports: Mourinho wants out of Madrid

On the eve of one of the more important matches of the season for Real Madrid, manager Jose Mourinho is making headlines again for all the wrong reasons.

According to reports out of Spain, Mourinho is letting it be known that he wants out of Madrid at the end of this season, which would be two years into his four-year contract with the club. It's not the first time that a premature Mourinho exit has become a topic of conversation in his brief time at the Bernabeu, though this one comes at an odd time.

Real Madrid leads the Spanish league table by five points over Barcelona and has been dominant in league play. Mourinho's men also were the only ones to collect maximum points in the UEFA Champions League group stage and have a favorable draw for the Round of 16 by getting paired with CSKA Moscow. Reported locker room dissent and an overall sense of frustration, however, have allegedly pushed "The Special One" to the brink of an exit.

Madrid travels to Camp Nou to face Barcelona in tomorrow's second leg of the Copa del Rey quarterfinals a week after his side blew a 1-0 advantage and fell at home to its bitter rivals by a 2-1 scoreline. Should Mourinho and his club not overturn the deficit, their title defense would come to an early close.

How do you see this playing out? Think Mourinho would really leave Madrid after this year? Think it's all a bunch of fruitless hype? Wish Special1TV would just come back already? Which team would you want to see Mourinho go to next?

    our CB depth is plenty deep, especially with Ramos now. we have a major problem on the right and left wings, for depth. before Fabio, it was basically just Marcelo, Ramos and Arbeloa.

    also, we don’t need any more center mids! we have Ozil, Kaka, Xabi, Lass, Sami, Granero, Altintop, and Sahin!!!

    the truth is Madrid don’t need much of anything. they could use some depth at RB but that’s all. they just need to continue playing together.
