Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira is set to meet Jose Mourinho in order to find out his demands as he bids to tempt the manager back to Portugal.

Mourinho has been out of work since Manchester United sacked him last month, but he remains a coveted manager in Europe and is not expected to be short of offers.

With Real Madrid continuing to underperform under Santiago Solari, the Portuguese has been incessantly linked with a return to the Bernabeu next summer.

Benfica president Vieira recently said that money will not be a problem if Mourinho is prepared to take up the challenge of returning to the Estadio da Luz and coaching the Portuguese giants.

And according to Portuguese sports daily A Bola, the Benfica chief is serious about wooing Mourinho and is scheduled to hold a one-on-one meeting with the former two-time Champions League winning manager.

He is keen to listen to what his compatriot’s demands and conditions would be when it comes to taking over at Benfica next season.

Vieira is aware that with Real Madrid seemingly interested in having him back, it could be hard to convince the 55-year-old to return to Portuguese football.

Mourinho made a name for himself by winning the Champions League at FC Porto, but Benfica were the first club who employed him as a head coach.
