Speaking on French television, Real Madrid boss José Mourinho has refused to rule out a possible future move to French football. After Sunday's La Liga victory over Rayo Vallecano, the Portuguese coach spoke to 'Canal+ France', and was enigmatic when asked about the possibility of switching to Ligue 1. The former Chelsea manager also held back from discussing the timing of such a move, commenting: "Coaching in France? It's a possibility, but I don't know when. I can't say when, but why not?"
In November, a disagreement with Madrid president Florentino Pérez unleashed speculation in the media that Mourinho could take over at mega-rich club Paris Saint-Germain. Reports even surfaced that the owner of the Parisian outfit, Sheikh Bin Hamad Al Thani, had sounded out the coach's agent, Jorge Mendes, and that secret negotiations had followed.
