'I am not an option for Benfica', claims Jose Mourinho

Thankfully, the Mirror report that Mourinho has now been paid up in full by United with a compensation package totalling £15million - and that's after Mourinho agreed to knock £4million as a compromise.

The source added that Real Madrid approached Mourinho following the sacking of former boss Julen Lopetegui in October. Jose Mourinho has only been out of a job for a few weeks, but he is already set to return to our television screens.

Jose Mourinho says he will not be taking charge of Benfica as he has no intention of returning to Portugal's Primeira Liga.

The 55-year-old has since been replaced by Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has taken up the interim managerial role at the Theatre of Dreams.

The Portuguese coach was relived of his duties by Manchester United after guiding the club to their worst start to a league campaign in nearly 30 years.

Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has got his first new job since leaving Old Trafford in December.

There are no longer any ties to Manchester, and it looks as though Jose already has his eyes on his next move.

While speaking the Correio da Manha newspaper, he said, "I don't have any intention of coming back to work in Portugal".

Coach Rui Vitoria left Benfica last Thursday after an agreement with the club. [Returning to Madrid or Inter would be] a huge honour, but I'm talking to you and no-one else right now.

"The other thing I have learned is to respect the clubs who want me and those who don't want me".

Mourinho began his coaching career at Benfica in 2000 but was only in charge of nine games.

The Portuguese has chose to take one job as a pundit for beIN Sports on the Arseanl versus Chelsea match on January 19.
