But it is understood that Mourinho has no imminent plans to return to Portugal.

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is free of any lingering contractual obligations from his former club and is now free to join another club, according to reports.

"There are no issues over Jose's contract with Manchester United".

Ex-Manchester United Jose Mourinho has landed a television job for the first time after leaving the Old Trafford dwellers a year ago.

Jose Mourinho has only been out of a job for a few weeks, but he is already set to return to our television screens.

Speculation is rife over the Real job at the moment, with Santiago Solari struggling for positive results in the wake of Julen Lopetegui's departure in October.

Sunday's 2-0 defeat at home to Real Sociedad was Los Blancos' sixth of the season, which saw them fall 10 points behind league leaders Barcelona.

"I haven't received an offer and even if I did, obviously the president of Benfica and the club itself would be the first to know my decision", he told the website of the Correo da Manha newspaper.

Despite saying he "would not feed" the rumours that have grown since his sacking from Manchester United last month, the 55-year-old went on to definitely feed the rumours in an interview with Record.

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

He said on the prospect of returning: "They are things that are said and I will not feed".

Solari's job is now under huge threat and reports in Spain claim Real chiefs want to bring back Mourinho to save their season. They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there.

The amount United would be entitled to is £10m, which Real will have to fork over if they make Mourinho their manager before December 18, 2019.

Benfica's previous coach, Rui Vitória, left by mutual consent last Thursday with the Lisbon club third in the league and has now taken over at the Saudi club Al-Nassr.
