Mourinho told BBC Radio Four’s Today programme last week:
“I am very, very happy to be in Real Madrid. It is a great experience for me. I believe it is probably the biggest club in the history of football, I didn’t want to miss the chance to work here, but my passion is England and my next step will be to go back, if possible go and stay for a long time. Get me a club in a couple of years, get me a good club.”
Bookmakers offer odds, in this order, on Chelsea, United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal as possible destinations for the ‘Special One’. And Tottenham Hotspur must be a possibility if Harry Redknapp leaves to coach England.
While manager of Inter Milan in late 2009, Mourinho said:
“I would consider going to Manchester United but United have to consider if they want me to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson. If they do, then of course.”
