The Special One, as you know, got sacked by Chelsea today. It was coming. The Blues’ results have been laughably poor for such a world-class squad and the club now hover just above the relegation zone. The problems were many.
But what next for Mourinho?
The Portuguese coach has made no secret of his desire to manage another English club should he be forced to leave Chelsea before his contract was up. Given Man United’s recent performances, and fans’ calling for Louis van Gaal’s dismissal, perhaps the 52-year-old could be on his way to Old Trafford?
Interestingly former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderón sent a tweet suggesting that Mourinho could be on his way for a second spell at the Spanish giants.
Only a few things to sort out and he'll be here

And with reports that Pep Guardiola is set to announce his exit from Bayern Munich at the end of the current season (to possibly join Chelsea or Man City), perhaps the Bundesliga could finally get a taste of the Special One.
It’s also worth pointing out that Laurent Blanc is in the final year of his contract with mega-rich Paris St Germain.
One thing is for sure, Jose Mourinho will have plenty of options.
