And just when Manchester United fans were dreaming of another trophy-laden era a la Sir Alex Ferguson…
Jose Mourinho has already won three trophies at United in his first 12 months in charge but even with the Red Devils unbeaten to start this season and having six wins from eight in the Premier League, it appears he is already thinking about another challenge elsewhere.
Speaking to French outlet TF1 he says “I won’t finish [my career] in Manchester” and then hints at moving to Paris Saint-Germain.
Mourinho, 54, then went on to speak glowingly about Paris and Paris Saint-Germain, a club he has been linked with managing in the past.
“The other day my son decided to watch a match in Paris. Why? Paris has something special. Magic about the place. It’s fantastic,” Mourinho said.
Now, call me a cynic, but Mourinho’s current deal at United runs out at the end of next season.
Talk like this will surely force United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to speed up any contract talks he has planned for handing Mourinho an extension.
