Jose Mourinho has been out of work since he was sacked by Manchester United last season, and the Portuguese is keen on a return to manage a Premier League club.
Reports claim Mauricio Pochettino is looking for an exit route from Spurs following a dismal start to the Premier League campaign, and that he has become disillusioned at the club.
According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho is weighing up his options and has already turned down an approach from Benfica and a big money offer from China.
Managing Spurs is a project that appeals to Mourinho, despite the fact that Tottenham’s squad is in need of a massive overhaul, and Mourinho always love to work with a big squad and a big budget.
Mourinho has been a regular on Sky Sports this season as a pundit and insisted he was in no rush to return to management.
He said: “I have to be patient and wait for the right opportunity and the right opportunity is one that is at the same size and the same level that I am as a manager.
“I have to wait for the exact right one.”
Meanwhile, there is trouble in the home front for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, as the club seem to be going down under his leadership. United’s loss to Newcastle was a new low and now the club find themselves in 12th position and just two points above the relegation zone.
