Ex-United boss Mourinho lands new job in Qatar for Asian Cup

Mourinho is sure to have plenty to say about the game featuring another of his former clubs, as well as a team he has not held in the highest esteem during his time in English football. And, if things fail to improve, it is likely that Solari could part ways with Real Madrid, judging by Florentino Perez's track record with underperforming managers - Julen Lopetegui was sacked just three months into joining the club.

Solari was initially instated until the end of the season following a heavy 5-1 defeat to Barcelona, but Real fell to a 2-0 home defeat to Real Sociedad at the weekend to leave them fifth in the table - and outside the Champions League places.

According to reports Jose Mourinho is free to return to management despite, some reports suggesting that he was going to be barred from taking a new job.

When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club it is a tremendous honour.

The Portuguese born tactician was said to have been paid £15 million as compensation by the Premier League giants after terminating his contract abruptly in December 2018.

And it sounds like it could get even better for United should Real re-hire Mourinho, because doing so would trigger a clause in the 55-year-old's previous contract. Interestingly for a man who operates on something of a scorched earth policy when things are going badly for him in a job, the Portuguese manager has been nearly exclusively linked with clubs that he has already managed.

"I felt that when I returned to Chelsea".

And, while his appointment might not go down well with some of the players, the Real Madrid president is of the opinion that the Portuguese is the right man to revive the club's fortunes.

In the meantime, Mourinho has lined up a stint working as a pundit with beIN Sports in Qatar, where he will cover the upcoming Asian Cup.

Based on that trajectory it won't be too long till he's back at Chelsea or become Prime Minister, whichever of those jobs is available first, so probably PM then.
