Report: Jose Mourinho Interested After Being Offered Celtic Job

Celtic's search for a new permanent boss could be set for a dramatic turn after former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been heavily linked with the job.

Interm boss Neil Lennon wrapped up the Scottish Premier League title on Saturday and is yet to lose a domestic fixture since assuming the role. However, with considerable work ahead this summer and demand to maintain their monopoly, the Glasgow club bosses are reportedly keen on Mourinho.

Per Sky Sports reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, Celtic have offered the job to the Portuguese manager. His agent, Jorge Mendes, is pursuing a move to PSG if Thomas Tuchel leaves. It is claimed his second choice is Celtic as he has a positive relationship with chief executive Peter Lawwell and it represents a significant chance of winning silverware.

Di Marzio will be familiar to Manchester United fans given his ability to break transfer stories during the previous manager's reign.

However, per the Daily Record, sources within the club have denied the report.


Several names have been linked to the job including David Moyes and André Villas-Boas. For time being, Celtic are set to focus on completing yet another treble with the Cup final later this month.
