Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain have set their eyes on Jose Mourinho, and will reportedly ‘try to lure’ the Portuguese tactician next summer.

The Special One has clearly stated that he does not want to leave Old Trafford for now, but also that United won’t be the end of the road for him, and his latest comments about PSG suggest that there might be a twist to the tale. Mourinho seems to have dropped a major hint that Paris could be a possible destination post United, as he heaped praise on the French side by calling it a ‘special’ club.

PSG are also well-known admirers of the Portuguese, and wanted to acquire his services back in 2016, before United captured him. And as per The Sun, the French giants will go for his signature again next summer. It was reported that the Parisiens are willing to let go of current boss Unai Emery if he fails to win the Champions League this season.

Furthermore, the Ligue 1 leaders also have Antero Henrique, with whom Mourinho worked at Porto, as the club’s new sporting director, and he could help the Ligue 1 outfit attract the 54-year-old manager.

While discussing his future, Mourinho said: “I have my contract that ends in May/June 2019, we are in October 2017, so I don’t know what to say.

“One day you say I am going to sign a five year contract and the next day you say I am going to leave. The only thing that I said and is true and there was not misinterpretation of my words is I am not going to end my career at Manchester United.

“I ask how is it possible in modern football that a manager is going to last 15 or 20 years, I think Wenger is the last one, it is impossible for us, to last for so long. If in this moment I want to finish my career in four or five years my ambition would be to end my career at Manchester United.”
