Manchester expected to be Jose’s next port of call
MANCHESTER CITY are the early favourites to be Jose Mourinho's next club but bookmakers can't agree on where the future of the Real Madrid boss lies, after reports surfaced today strongly suggesting he and Real will part ways at the end of this season.
Although the former Chelsea manager hastily denied the story, which appeared in Madrid-based Spanish sports daily Marca, bookmakers were equally fast in pricing up where he will manage next and City are 3-1 with bet365.
The firm clearly fancy him to head to Paris Saint-Germain, who are their favourites, though the French club are as big as 10-1 with Ladbrokes.
Manchester United are also prominent at 7-2, though such a deal would of course depend on the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, who has long admired Mourinho and will have a hand in choosing his successor. Ladbrokes offer 5-2 that Ferguson retires as United manager before the start of next season.
The Portuguese manager is 4-1 to return to former club Chelsea.
