Jose Mourinho wants Man United job…but would also consider England post

Posted by

Sacked Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is apparently desperate to take charge of Manchester United should they decide to part ways with Louis van Gaal, and would even consider taking the England job after the summer’s European Championship, according to The Sun.

With van Gaal coming in for some heavy criticism at Old Trafford, Mourinho’s name would almost automatically be in the frame to take over, though he would have to work to convince United big wigs that the chaotic last few months of his Chelsea tenure would not be repeated.

However, he would also be open to leading the Three Lions if Roy Hodgson decides to step down from his post following the Euros in just over six months time.

But what is more likely, in the short term at least, is that he will emerge as a target for Spanish giants Real Madrid and Valencia.

Reports had surfaced recently claiming that Madrid president Florentino Perez is still keen on reuniting with him in the capital, while Valencia, who recently hired Gary Neville on a short term deal, will be looking for his long-term successor at the end of the season.
