Jose Mourinho has recently revealed that we can expect a return to the Premier League when his reign as Real Madrid manager comes to an end.
The Portuguese head coach claims he is happy at the Bernabeu, but feels his next job will be back in England.
“I just say openly that, for many reasons, after this the next step will be England,” the 49-year-old stated.
“When? I don’t know, I don’t have an idea. I’m so happy in this moment to be manager of the best club in the world.”
Mourinho has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United as a potential successor for Sir Alex Ferguson. But is a move to Old Trafford really on the cards?
During his interview with CNN, he said he’d rather that Sir Alex was still in charge at United when he makes his return to the EPL.
“For me, he is the boss. I call him the boss because he is the boss of the coaches and I hope when I go back to English football he is still manager of Manchester United.”
This news will certainly put a number of Premier League clubs on red alert. Considering Mourinho will not wait for the United job, it seems a move to another top English side is a more likely scenario.
So where does he plan to end up? City? Newcastle? Or a remarkable return to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea?
He’s always claimed his breakaway from Roman Abramovich’s side was clean, the ‘perfect example of a fantastic divorce.’
Could this suggest a move back to the London club? Only time will tell.
