Mourinho on his way to the Chinese Super League
Manchester United confirmed Mourinho’s contract termination on Tuesday and the outspoken manager has since left the Theater of Dreams without addressing the press.
The Portuguese manager is now in his homeland, taking a much needed break from all that had happened some months ago.
The former Chelsea manager, who is known as the ‘special one’ is reportedly going to take some time before returning back to work with a new club in a new environment.
After much stress and dramas he encountered in his final days at Old Trafford, the 55-year-old rightly need to go on vacation so as to reflect on his two-and-a-half years stay at Old Trafford.
He must learn from his mistakes and prepare for a new adventure with another club ahead of the next season.
However, it remains unknown which club would love to hire the highly controversial manager before the 2019-2020 season begins.
Considering his high controversial records and his unhealthy relationship with players and employers, it would be very difficult for Premier League clubs to splash their cash on his signature.
In this regards, there are huge uncertainties over the Portuguese nearest future as no club is willing to ‘to buy trouble for themselves ahead of next season’
Inter Milan’s Setback
A day after his dismissal, some Italian reporters claimed that Inter Milan are keeping close tabs on the manager’s situation as they might be forced to reunite with him.
According to Corriere dello Sport , the San Siro outfits have failed to win a Serie A trophy since Mourinho’s departure in 2010, hence, they are willing to re-sign the Portuguese manager should Luciano Spaletti fail to deliver by the end of the season.
The report was gladly welcomed by the Inter Milan faithfuls, who have been in love with Mourinho since his treble-winning campaign of 2010.
However, their hope of reuniting with the manager was dashed by sporting director Piero Ausilio who claimed the board are happy with Luciano Spaletti and they have no reason to partway with the former Roma manager.
As a result of Piero Ausilio’s comments, Mourinho suffered a huge setback in his desire to return to action as soon as possible.
Is Chinese Super League the best/next option?
In recent seasons, there have been great improvements in the Chinese Super League. The League has moved from obscurity to becoming the fastest developing League in the world.
They spend huge cash on star players in every transfer markets so as to bring more fame to the League.
Moving to China, as many would say, looks a step down for the two-time Champions League winner but that is the only League that can bring much cash to his pocket.
Considering his experience, quality and achievements, many top CSL clubs would be looking to capture his services irrespective of the money involved.
Mourinho had earlier defended some world-class players who made unexpected move to the Chinese Super League in 2016-17 season, it could be his turn to join the fast-growing football environment sooner than expected
