The Portuguese has been out of work since his sacking by Chelsea in December but has been persistently linked with Louis van Gaal's job at Manchester United.

Van Gaal has a year of his United deal remaining but results and fan opinion are going against him, meaning it would not come as a surprise if he left Old Trafford 12 months early.

On Mourinho's side, the three-time Premier League winner has said he is hopeful of a summer return having turned down a number of offers since Chelsea dumped him as a result of their poor title defence.

Speaking to Fletch and Sav on BT Sport, the 53-year-old said: "I was Iucky enough to have good options since I left Chelsea in December.

"Yes I was lucky enough to have not just options but good options but I made a decision to wait calm in my corner, not disturbing, just waiting, reading a few lies, listen to a few lies.

"The reality is that I want to work and normally July, mid-July, new pre-season starts and somewhere I want to be there."
