It has been almost two weeks since Manchester United gave Jose Mourinho his marching orders, but where will the Portuguese boss pop up next.
So poor were Manchester United during Mourinho’s two-and-a-half year stint at Old Trafford, a number of pundits have suggested that the 55-year-old could struggle to get another ‘top job’.
However, with Jose being out of work now, some clubs will be tempted by the prospect of a big name manager, and even though he has just pocketed around £22m from United, he will probably still command a nice little sign up bonus too.
We decided to look at the odds on where his next job will be.
Monaco – 10/1
One of the big five leagues that Jose Mourinho hasn’t conquered, but since their 2017 Ligue 1 title triumph, the principality club have gone decidedly backwards and are already on their second manager of the season.
Former Arsenal star Thierry Henry is hardly pulling up trees in his first full managerial role, and if Monaco decide to splash the cash, Mourinho could be tempted to try and crack the French League.
The fact that this is Monaco and not PSG shows how far his stock has slipped though.
Inter Milan – 8/1
One of the clubs where Mourinho didn’t actually leave in a sea of controversy, steering the club to a historic treble back in 2010.
He is understandably revered as a hero among the Nerazzurri faithful and could be tempted back to the San Siro, especially considering their ambitious transfer ideas of late.
Bayern Munich – 6/1
Again, another top league that Mourinho hasn’t yet cracked, where the usually dominant force of the Bundesliga are currently struggling.
The appointment of Niko Kovac hasn’t gone well, and they are a long way off the pace being set by Borussia Dortmund.
Will a stint in Bavaria be up next for the one time ‘special one’?
Portugal – 5/1
It’s a role he has always been linked with, but could Jose’s recent struggles in club football finally see him take his first forays into International management?
Real Madrid – 4/1
Despite some saying that he is finished at the very top of the game, he still has a very good relationship with Real Madrid boss Florentino Perez.
The loss of Cristiano Ronaldo has had a profound effect on the 13 time European champions, with current incumbent Santiago Solari looking like a mere stop gap.
Perez has never shied away from splashing the cash on players, which is something that is usually right up Mourinho’s alley.
Is another return to a former club on the cards?
