Jose Mourinho: Wanted at PSG

Jose Mourinho has been approached by Paris Saint-Germain to take over at the end of the season, according to reports.

Mourinho, who has been heavily linked with Manchester United, is still looking for his first club since being sacked by Chelsea in December.

The 53-year-old has been tentatively linked with returns to Real Madrid and Inter Milan during his respite from management, but PSG seem the most likely suitors if a move to Old Trafford does not materialise in the summer.

United boss Louis van Gaal has been continually reported to be heading out of Old Trafford, however the Dutchman remains in situ, but now United may have to step up their interest in the Portuguese boss with Sky Sports claiming the French club have made a move for Mourinho’s services after growing ‘frustrated’ at Laurent Blanc’s failure to push the club forward in Europe.

Sky claim tha PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has instigated the approach to Mourinho – via his agent Jorge Mendes – immediately after PSG’s Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester City last week, having grown frustrated at the club’s lack of progress in Europe.

Sky go on to report that Mourinho considers PSG ‘a credible choice’ for his return to management, but that he is looking to wait until the end of the season to ‘monitor developments’ at United.

Mourinho was, bizarrely, challenged with a move to manage Leeds United after being challenged by eccentric Italian owner Massimo Cellino.
