Jose Mourinho On Rumours Of Return To Former Club

Jose Mourinho On Rumours Of Return To Former Club

Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United just before Christmas and Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira said "money would be no issue" when asked if he could tempt Mourinho back to the club.

When things went wrong for the former "Special One" at Chelsea the first time it didn't take long till he was in charge at Inter, when it went pear shaped at Real Madrid he was soon back at Chelsea and when the Blues sacked him for a second time it was only six months till he was in charge at Manchester United.

The pay-out leaves the 55-year-old Portuguese free to take up the permanent job in Madrid, despite the disappointing end to his two-and-a-half year spell at Old Trafford, when Santiago Solari's time as the European champion's interim boss ends.

Sunday's 2-0 defeat at home to Real Sociedad was Los Blancos' sixth of the season, which saw them fall 10 points behind league leaders Barcelona.

"When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club, it's a great honour".

"I haven't received an offer and even if I did, obviously the president of Benfica and the club itself would be the first to know my decision", he told the website of the Correo da Manha newspaper.

Arsenal's Ramsey set for Juventus medical on January 13
Juventus are leading the race to sign Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey when his contract expires at the end of the season. Ramsey joined Arsenal for £4.8million from Cardiff City and has played 252 games for Arsenal , scoring 52 goals.

The Daily Mail reports that a source close to Mourinho - whose contract was due to run till the end of the 2019/20 campaign with the option of an extra season -revealed that compensation had been paid.

"Today I have no intention of returning to Portugal".

It will be interesting to hear the Portuguese's opinions on that match, but everyone will be tuning in to find out what he has to say about his final few months at Manchester United.

Mourinho is said to have rejected the chance to return to his former club, deeming it too early in his career for a return to Portugal. They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there.

Mourinho has also been spoken of as a possible successor to the axed Rui Vitoria at Benfica.
