But Mourinho has refused to speak out on his exit from Old Trafford and, despite not being directly asked about his United departure, added: "I always learned that when you leave a club, you do not talk. Everything has been sorted", said a source close to the former United, Inter and Real Madrid boss, the Daily Mail reported.

His record speaks for itself and various new job opportunities have been mooted since he became available to take charge at a new club.

Real Madrid could be forced to delay the appointment of Jose Mourinho as their new manager over a compensation wrangle with Manchester United but new that Manchester United have given their green signal its totally up to Real Madrid to make a move for the Portuguese manager.

Jose Mourinho will join beIN SPORTS, the global sports broadcaster, this week as part of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 and English Premier League coverage, which viewers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) enjoy exclusively on the leading sports channel.

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he never planned taking up any job in Portugal at the moment.

"When a Coach or player returns to a club, it means they did something positive there".


"When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club, it's a great honour".

Could Mourinho be Real manager once again?

"I do not like feeding news stories, but I have no intention of working in Portugal", he said to Correio da Manha on Thursday.

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.

Jose Mourinho has ruled out a return to management at Benfica, with the Portuguese not intending to head back to his homeland after being dismissed by Manchester United.
