Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has set his return to management for the summer months, ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The Portuguese, who was sacked by the Red Devils in December following a poor start to the campaign, has been out of football since. He was linked with the Real Madrid post before the reappointment of Zinedine Zidane.
However, he has suggested that he is eyeing a return ahead of next season. Talking to beIN Sports in France, Mourinho said: “I want to train a club, I want to find a place for this summer, in June for the preseason.
“I know exactly what I do not want, that’s why I’ve already rejected three or four offers. And I know what I want, not the name of the club, but the work style, workload.
“I know what I want and that’s what I hope for.
“It does not matter where I’m going, to a place where I can still win, it’s been two and a half months since I’ve been without training and I’m already preparing for the next challenge.”
Intriguingly, Ligue 1 is the only league within the ‘big five’ that Mourinho is yet to manage in and he is the favourite to be named as the next permanent boss of Paris Saint Germain at odds of 11/8 with Paddy Power.
