The likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford have looked like completely different players under the Norwegian interim boss, and it will be fascinating to hear what Mourinho has to say about their dramatic upturn in form.

Manchester United paid Jose Mourinho's £15 million (about R265.5 million) compensation package immediately after he was sacked.

The former Chelsea handler signed an improved contract with United a year ago which was due to expire at the end of the 2019-20 season, with an option of a further season.

They say you can't keep a good man down, so many will be wondering what the hell Jose Mourinho does to be able to bounce back every time.

The source added that Real Madrid approached Mourinho following the sacking of former boss Julen Lopetegui in October.

The former Real midfielder has fared better but has still lost three times to leave the Champions League holders in fifth, 10 points behind fierce rivals Barcelona who are top.

Nearly as soon as Jose took his marching orders from Old Trafford last month the former Manchester United boss has been linked with a return to Real.

He said: "I have never been into the game of feeding news stories, but I have no intention of working in Portugal". Real Madrid and Inter Milan, two other clubs at which he enjoyed success to different degrees, are also said to be interested in bringing him back.

"It's a tremendous honour when you return to a club where you've been, but I'm talking to you and I will not talk to anyone else".

As reported earlier, 55-year-old Mourinho has been heading Manchester United since 2016.

"He told them he was the manager of Manchester United and totally committed to the club".

Benfica's previous coach, Rui Vitória, left by mutual consent last Thursday with the Lisbon club third in the league and has now taken over at the Saudi club Al-Nassr.

But the manager was let go by the club due to their struggles in all competitions this campaign as they were sixth on the log before he was sacked.
