Jose Mourinho is a wanted man in the world of football and the former Chelsea FC manager hinted that he may be coming back to the Premier League.


The Portuguese has been linked with a move to a host of different clubs ever since his departure from Chelsea. However, widespread media speculation has suggested that Mourinho will be moving to Manchester United in the summer.

The club is said to be unhappy with the lack of progress under Louis van Gaal so far this season and might axe the Dutchman at the end of the current campaign. In a recent sponsorship event in Portugal, Mourinho confirmed that he will return to management in the 2016-2017 season and hinted that his destination could well be the Premier League.

“I can almost guarantee you that I’ll be back working this summer. I’ve got good offers on the table,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News. “It’s a matter of thinking, to come to a good decision and finalising it. In the summer everyone will know what my next club will be.

“I’ll take my ideas to where they are wanted. I want to be at a place where I’m wanted. I want to work at a club with responsibility, in a hard league and where there are no easy objectives. That doesn’t leave many options.”

Mourinho’s options

Mourinho signed pre-contract agreement with Manchester UnitedAs the Portuguese himself said, there are not too many options when you want to be managing in a “difficult” league. The Premier League is largely considered to be the most difficult league in the world, with a handful of different teams being capable of winning the competition.

In fact, this season, Leicester City have surprised all the traditional big clubs with their simple, yet incredibly effective approach. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur, who have long been overshadowed by city rivals Arsenal and Chelsea, have also been challenging for the Premier League title this campaign.

However, the Spanish league has proven to be quite competitive over the past few years and although they do not have as many contenders for the title, La Liga has seen the meteoric rise of Atletico Madrid under Diego Simeone in recent years. Atletico even won the league in the 2013/14 season and are challenging for the title once again this campaign.

The two clubs that Mourinho has been heavily linked with are Manchester United and Real Madrid, with the former looking like the favourites to win the race to his signature. However, Mourinho may have been hinting at either of these two top leagues while discussing his future and it would be a huge surprise if the former Chelsea boss chose to ply his trade in another country.
