Jose Mourinho wants to join a new club in the summer after “reading and listening to a few lies” about his future.


Mourinho has been out of work since his sacking by Chelsea in December but has regularly been linked with Louis van Gaal’s job at Manchester United.

Van Gaal has a year of his United deal remaining but speculation continues over his future during a disappointing season at Old Trafford.

On Mourinho’s side, the three-time Premier League winner has said he is hopeful of a summer return having turned down a number of offers since leaving Chelsea after a poor title defence.

Speaking to Fletch and Sav on BT Sport, the 53-year-old said: “I was Iucky enough to have good options since I left Chelsea in December.

“Yes I was lucky enough to have not just options but good options but I made a decision to wait calm in my corner, not disturbing, just waiting, reading a few lies, listen to a few lies.

“The reality is that I want to work and normally July, mid-July, new preseason starts and somewhere I want to be there.”
