It's been six months since Jose Mourinho left Manchester United, and you would have to assume that he is getting the itch to get back into management. He has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months, but has yet to find a move that suits.
Considering Mourinho's personality and financial demands, there are only a few select clubs in world football that could realistically offer him the job.
He has been strongly linked with Juventus in the past few days, with rumours circulating in the media that Cristiano Ronaldo was hoping to reunite with his former manager in Turin. The potential move is complicated by his relationship with the Juve fans, who are not all that fond of Mourinho after his spell with Inter Milan at the turn of the decade.
Speaking to Sky Sports at the Monaco Grand Prix, the Portuguese boss was very coy on his future. He admitted he was looking to get back into management, but would be careful in picking his next job.

I don't know, honestly I don't know. The only thing that I know is that I cannot be emotional.
I have to be rational. I have not to choose just because I want to work and I am desperate to work - I have to choose because it is the right project for me, the right motivation for me.
I want to become stronger than ever. I'm studying a lot, I am working a lot with my staff to be a great team as a coaching staff and to be ready to do it again big.
So, I have to think. We will think and analyse and make the right decision.
Despite the complications surrounding his history in Italy, this is a deal that looks like it could be done. With Thomas Tuchel extending his contract at PSG, there are few other options out there for Mourinho this summer.
