The Telegraph report that former man Utd boss, Jose Mourinho, is in talks with the richest man in China, Hui Ka Yan, to take over at either Guangzhou Evergrande- whose hit seat is currently occupied by Fabio Cannavaro- it the Chinese national side.
In the past, he has turned down international jobs, including one offer from England, because he prefers the day-to-day intensity of domestic football.
It would represent an extraordinary shift in his career approach if he did plump for that option, China having only qualified for the world cup once in third history.
Back in May, he admitted in a radio interview that he hoped to to return to the game in July in a ‘project l really like’.
When I left Manchester United in December, I immediately took the decision I want to work from summer. I hope to be back in work in July.
