Mourinho set to return to management

Portuguese "can almost guarantee" new role this summer

Jose Mourinho says he has "good offers on the table" for a return to management this summer.

The Portuguese has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea in December, just months after winning the Premier League title during his second stint at Stamford Bridge.

The former Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager, who has been linked with a number of top clubs in Europe, says he is almost certain to return to management in the next few months.

"I can almost guarantee you that I'll be back working this summer. I've good offers on the table," he said.

"It's a matter of thinking, to come to a good decision and finalising it. In the summer everyone will know what my next club will be."

The 53-year-old has repeatedly been tipped as a possible replacement for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, but there does seem to be some tension at Old Trafford over his appointment, with some senior figures put off by his abrasive personality and his reluctance to promote young players to first-team level.

Mourinho, speaking at a sponsorship event in Lisbon on Friday, suggested that he would not take the United job if his appointment wasn't universally supported.

"I'll take my ideas to where they are wanted," he continued.

"I want to be at a place where I'm wanted. I want to work at a club with responsibility, in a hard league and where there are no easy objectives. That doesn't leave many options."
