This is huge: Mourinho already has a job in hand

Sankha Ghosh / 18 December 2015

According to his agent Francois Gallardo, Mourinho already has an agreement in place to take charge at Monaco next season.

Now free of any commitment after negotiating his exit from Chelsea, Jose Mourinho understands he should not stay long in unemployment. Several major European clubs are already interested in his profile, although the premature end of his contract at Stamford Bridge was not at all planned. The Portuguese manager thought he could atleast continue his job till the end of this season.

However, Real Madrid would be very much tempted by Mourinho’s return, club president Florentino Perez has always been a great admirer of the “Special One”, even though this is not a favourite topic to Cristiano Ronaldo, nor the Real fans or Madrid media. At a time when Rafael Benitez is already highly contested within six months after his appointment, this track could be studied with interest. 

But according to Francois Gallardo, FIFA agent who is famous for being the first to announce the world record transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid from Tottenham in 2013, now claims that he knows the next destination of newly sacked Jose Mourinho. And the agent of the Portuguese manager will not have to look far, since he would have found a suitable place for him in Monaco, where Jorge Mendes has his quarters for the last two years.  

“He will not return to Real Madrid. It might because the president wants, but he has problems with important players like Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo. I understand he has a preliminary agreement with Monaco for next season,” said Francois Gallardo told Spanish media outlet Fichajes.

 An arrival that could make a lot of noise and can revive the French club’s lost glory in recent times, after selling important players in last few months without recruiting.

A shock defeat to Leicester on Monday night left Chelsea 16th in the Premier League table, just a single point above the relegation zone, with the Portuguese tactician accusing his players of betraying him on the pitch and saying that the players overachieved in winning the Premier League title last season. The harsh decision of sacking Mourinho came only five months into the new 4 year deal he signed in August. Chelsea’s official statement also confirmed the decision was not taken lightly by Abramovich and his fellow board members.
