Jose Mourinho is happy to wait until the summer before returning to management.
Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December following the club's dismal defence of their Premier League title, but the Portuguese has been repeatedly linked with a move to Manchester United.
With Louis van Gaal under increasing pressure at Old Trafford there have been suggestions that United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward could opt to bring in Mourinho in a bid to rescue the club's faltering season.
Mourinho, however, believes it would be better for him to wait until the summer before making his return.
"I always feel that it’s better to wait, not to rush, better to be calm, to wait for the right moment, the right move. I feel that starting the next season with a new club and project is probably the best thing for me," Mourinho told reporters in Singapore.
"I’m travelling, enjoying my family, enjoying my friends and my life, and I wait to see what happens. The reality is I like football so much, I miss football, and when I have the chance to be back I will come back."
Earlier this month it was reported that Mourinho's representatives had met with United to discuss the manager's position. Indeed, there have been claims that he has a gentleman's agreement to take over, but the 53-year-old insists he does not know anything about the job.
"That's the one million dollar question," he stated when asked whether he would replace Van Gaal at Old Trafford
"Nobody knows and I am the first one not to know. I read so many different things. One day it says yes, another day it says no, one other day it says I go to China, another day it says I go to Italy.
"I go to Milan and people say I am going back to Inter. I'm here probably you are saying I go to Singapore national team.
"Every day new things are coming but the reality is that I have not a job and in this moment I am happy not to have a job."
