Manchester United to pay Mourinho 16.6 million euros

Former Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho says

The 55-year-old had nine games in charge of Benfica in 2000 and also managed Uniao Leiria and Porto in his homeland before leaving for Chelsea in 2004.

A move to Benfica would see Mourinho return to his home country where his managerial career began in 1990.

Despite these honours, the club chose to terminate Vitoría's contract following some poor results this season that have left Benfica in third place and seven points behind leaders Porto after 16 games.

"I have never confirmed, nor denied any offers throughout my career", he told CMTV.

"The other thing I have learned is to respect the clubs who want me and those who don't want me". "But to help end all the speculation on this subject, I will say that at this moment, today, I have no intention of working in Portugal". "At the moment, I'm fine as I am", he added.

The Portugal tactician got fired after his side were thrashed 3-1 by current table toppers Liverpool earlier in December.

R. Kelly’s Former Manager Reportedly Has A Warrant Issued For His Arrest
In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. This week, buzz developed about a Georgia criminal investigation launching following last week's Surviving R.

The fact that he received the pay-off on his departure from Old Trafford means he is free to return to management.

With Santiago Solari under pressure at the Bernabeu, Mourinho - who was sacked by Manchester United in December - emerged as a potential candidate, having left the club on good terms with president Florentino Perez in 2013, while he remains a fan favourite at Inter, after guiding them to a Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League Treble in 2010.

"When you leave a club, you do not wash dirty clothes, when you leave a club, you do not seek to, at least publicly, do any kind of criticism, it's an ended chapter and that's how I always did it".

"It's not a gamble in the dark, the clubs are trying to hire a player or a coach they know, they've already been there, and if they invite you it's because they know the value of the person".

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.
