And it sounds like it could get even better for United should Real re-hire Mourinho, because doing so would trigger a clause in the 55-year-old's previous contract.

The Portuguese coach was relived of his duties by Manchester United after guiding the club to their worst start to a league campaign in nearly 30 years.

Mourinho did not offer any further comment about his sacking by Manchester United, who have won all five games under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær since his departure.

"If any professional - a manager or a player - is wanted by a former club, it means we did something positive", he told Correo da Manha, as quoted by ESPN.

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 Portuguese said.

"The other thing I have learned is to respect the clubs who want me and those who don't want me". Mourinho began his coaching career at Benfica in 2000 but was in charge for just nine matches.

In the meantime, Jose has already secured himself a bit of busy work to tide himself over for January with the announcement that he'll be joining the BeIN Sports punditry team out in Qatar for the 2019 Asian Cup.
