Jose Mourinho open to working outside of Premier League

Chelsea v Manchester United- Barclays Premier League

Reports are out that former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who is one of the prime candidates to replace Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, is "considering a role in China" as the Chinese Super League continues its quest for world football dominance. "For sure, I will be back soon". "If I knew the answer to that question, I would be the CEO".

Varane, 22, has struggled for consistent game time during his five seasons in Madrid, and as he matures as a player, he will be expecting to start every game. United need a dead cert as their next manager and for all the chaos that follows Mourinho, no manager guarantees trophies like he does, and United can't afford to take another gamble right now, even if Ferguson thinks Pochettino is the best.

"Are they going to go for someone who has had success, who knows how to manage teams like Jose Mourinho, or will they go with someone who is already in the house like Ryan Giggs?" the ex-United defender explained.

"I think the biggest problem today is the style of football".

Who would Jose Mourinho sell at Man Utd?

"There is plenty to play for this month and of course plenty of points to play for in the league".

It was also reported that the pressure is taking a toll on Van Gaal's family life which could prompt him to walk away from Old Trafford at the end of the current campaign.

Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern hoping to have a successor to the failing Louis Van Gaal lined-up imminently have been handed a bonus alongside their dish on curry night, with some positive reports.

"If the players give him 100% effort and show a willingness to succeed, he could definitely get Manchester United back to being one of those powerhouses in Europe, where teams fear to go", he continued.

Asked whether that big club might be United, Lampard added: "I think it's a possibility".

The former Chelsea boss Mourinho has secured a package at Old Trafford will put him on a par with old foe Pep Guardiola, who will join rivals Manchester City this summer.
