Mourinho takes TV pundit job after denying Benfica link

Nearly as soon as Jose took his marching orders from Old Trafford last month the former Manchester United boss has been linked with a return to Real.

Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to pick up another job barely one month after being sacked by Manchester United.

But Mourinho has refused to speak out on his exit from Old Trafford and, despite not being directly asked about his United departure, added: "I always learned that when you leave a club, you do not talk".

"When any professional returns to a club it is a tremendous honour".

For now, Santiago Solari seems to have his future up in the air, with Real Madrid in talks with former manager Jose Mourinho.

"There has been no contact, but they did get in touch with Jose after (Julen) Lopetegui was dismissed (in late October)", the Mail reports the source as saying.

The 55-year-old had nine games in charge of Benfica in 2000 and also managed Uniao Leiria and Porto in his homeland before leaving for Chelsea in 2004.

Reports coming coming out of the tactician's camp revealed on Wednesday night that: "There are no issues over Jose's contract with Manchester United".

He has previously rejoined a former club as he did with his two spells at Chelsea and is seeing similar moves discussed when it comes to possible openings at Real Madrid and Inter . Interestingly for a man who operates on something of a scorched earth policy when things are going badly for him in a job, the Portuguese manager has been nearly exclusively linked with clubs that he has already managed.

Mourinho is being linked with both giants.

But to help end all the speculation on this subject, I will say that at this moment, today, I have no intention of working in Portugal.

The amount United would be entitled to is £10m, which Real will have to fork over if they make Mourinho their manager before December 18, 2019.
