PARIS – Jose Mourinho has again said he would be interested in the possibility of taking charge at a French club as speculation continues to link him with a summer switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

Mourinho, 50, is widely expected to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season. Although the former Chelsea boss has often said he would like to return to England, it now seems he could be tempted by life in Ligue 1.

“It’s a possibility,” the Portuguese told Canal+. “But I don’t know when. I can’t say when. But why not?”

Qatari-owned PSG are the only French outfit that could provide the squad and resources to match Mourinho’s ambition.

In a radio interview with RMC last month, the coach also said he would be interested in taking charge of PSG, but added that he hoped that would not mean him replacing Carlo Ancelotti.

“I hope they’ll have success with Carlo and [sporting director] Leonardo and they won’t need another coach,” he explained. “I’m happy Paris has this project. It’s fantastic.”

A swap between Ancelotti and Mourinho has been mooted more than once in the French media, with Madrid president Florentino Perez a known admirer of the Italian.
