Real Madrid will step up their interest in Arsene Wenger if Jose Mourinho’s El Clasico torture continues at the Nou Camp in April.

The Bernabeu board are casting covetous eyes towards Arsenal boss Wenger again as opinion in the Spanish capital turns against Mourinho.

Although Real are in pole position for their first league title in four years and are in the last 16 of the Champions League, Mourinho has hit a brick wall in his attempts to wrest the balance of power from Barcelona.

The 2-2 draw in the Copa del Rey quarter-final on Wednesday handed Barcelona a 4-3 win on aggregate. Mourinho has won only once in 10 Clasicos since taking charge at the start of last season.

They meet again on April 22 in what could be a championship decider.

Wenger, along with Germany coach Joachim Low, is on the shortlist of candidates seen as a replacement for The Special One.

Wenger, jeered by Gunners fans during last Sunday’s home defeat by Manchester United, has a contract until 2014.
