Jose Mourinho suggests he might swap Real Madrid for Paris St Germain
Former Chelsea boss had been linked with a move back to the Premier League
Jose Mourinho has added to uncertainty over his future at Real Madrid, suggesting he would like to manage in France.
Before his side's 2-0 league win over Rayo Vallecano last night, Mourninho refused to rule out a move across the Pyrenees.
When asked whether he would be interested in managing in France, Mourinho told Canal+: "It's a possibility but I do not know when. I can not say when. Why not!"
Mourinho's future at the Bernabeu is in doubt, with Real's title defence a lost cause- they trail leaders Bacelona by 16 points- and a disapppointing 1-1 draw in the home leg of their Champions league last-16 tie against Manchester United.
And he has reportedly clashed with key players and club directors in the Spanish capital.
The 49-year-old has been linked with a return to England with either former club Chelsea or champions Manchester City but ambitious PSG could move to the top of the pile.
PSG stand three points clear at the top of Ligue 1, after a Qatari-backed spending spree brought in big names like Zlatan Ibrahomovic, Thiago Silva and most recently David Beckham.
Such a move would strike another list from Roman Abramovich's list of possible long-term replacements for Roberto Di Matteo, whom he sacked in November.
Eyebrows were raised at Stamford Bridge yesterday when Abramovich was seen watching the side's match against Brentford with former manager Avram Grant.
