Today, I am not an option for Benfica, says Jose Mourinho

Today, I am not an option for Benfica, says Jose Mourinho

The 55-year-old had nine games in charge of Benfica in 2000 and also managed Uniao Leiria and Porto in his homeland before leaving for Chelsea in 2004.

Mail Online report that Mourinho is free to take another job after his compensation package of £15m was paid to him by United immediately following his dismissal.

Mourinho was sacked by United last month and was replaced by former Red Devils' player, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club it is a tremendous honor".

The source added: "There has been no contact, but they did get in touch with Jose after Lopetegui was dismissed, but he told them he was the manager of Manchester United and totally committed to the club".

It will be interesting to hear the Portuguese's opinions on that match, but everyone will be tuning in to find out what he has to say about his final few months at Manchester United.

For now, Santiago Solari seems to have his future up in the air, with Real Madrid in talks with former manager Jose Mourinho.

Now that he is unemployed again, Mourinho has been repeatedly linked with a number of high-profile jobs.

However, Real president Florentino Perez remains a fan and with the club 10 points behind La Liga leaders Barca and outside the Champions League places pressure is mounting on Solari, who could be relieved of his duties before his contract expires at the end of the season.

He said: "I have never been into the game of feeding news stories, but I have no intention of working in Portugal". They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are one of the top clubs who are waiting to secure the services of the Portuguese manager for the second time.

The amount United would be entitled to is £10m, which Real will have to fork over if they make Mourinho their manager before December 18, 2019.
