Raul seeks return to Real Madrid

Real Madrid legend Raul expects to return to the club in some capacity when his playing days are over.

Raul, now 33, is currently playing for German side Schalke and has a contract until the end of next season with the Gelsenkirchen outfit.

Raul, whose side face Inter Milan in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, left Madrid last summer but insists coach Jose Mourinho did not offload him.

''When I finish my playing career I want to return to Real Madrid,'' he told La Stampa. ''But until 2012, I'm not thinking about it. I decided to leave - not Jose Mourinho. He wanted me to stay.''
