Jose Mourinho has told reporters in Italy that he can’t talk about his potential move to Manchester United.
The former Chelsea boss is in Milan this weekend watching his former club Inter Milan in action which led to heavy speculation about a return to the Italian side.
While he has categorically ruled out becoming Inter boss once again, Mourinho simply dismissed the Man United rumours and insisted he couldn’t talk about it.
He said: “Inter? I’m not going to return. Man Utd? I can’t talk about it. I’m not looking for a club, let’s see who’ll call me”
It’s telling that Mourinho is happy to openly refute any claims he could become Inter’s new manager but has chosen to remain completely silent about the United rumours. While one door is being closed, the other is being left firmly open.
United fans have all conceded that Mourinho is the man best suited to help us recover but until the announcement is officially made and he replaces Louis van Gaal, there will be concerns he could go elsewhere. However, United are the stand-out choice and there aren’t many other genuine options available for Jose.
