Ever since he left Manchester United a couple of months ago, everybody has been wondering where Jose Mourinho is going to play next. The Special One is one of the best managers in modern history and that will assure him to receive plenty of offers this offseason. With many clubs trying to start rebuilding or make the next step to win meaningful things and this guy can be the best for the job.
Several things will be without a boss this summer and Mourinho can take advantage of that. However, with the Portuguese pedigree and resume, not every squad will be able to land him, so here are the 5 best new destinations for Jose Mourinho.
Although they’re not living their best moment, Internazionale is one of the best clubs in Europe and they are keen to go back to the top spots in Italy and overseas. Mourinho could be making his comeback to Giuseppe Meazza with Inter and help the Italian giants recover the old shape they used to have.
They both know each other, and to put things into perspective, the last time Inter won the Champions League, Mou was in charge of that team that upset the all-powerful Barcelona and then Bayern Munich. If they pull off this move and some other signings they need to make, Inter might become a dark house in Italy and Europe next season.
Paris Saint-Germain is a team that has tried everything to succeed at a European level after years of success in France, but the Champions League doesn’t seem like the right place for the Parisians, who have struggled season after season with no success in the competition.
This season they will win everything in France, but that is not enough for their fans and directives, therefore, Thomas Tuchel might be making his way out of the club and Mourinho could be the next on queue to manage PSG. Mou is a proven winner and the kind of boss that doesn’t care about the manners, he wants to win at all cost, precisely what this team needs.
The Portuguese side was the one that sent Mourinho to the stardom after two magical seasons in which Porto won the UEFA Cup and the Champions League. Perhaps Porto doesn’t have the type of players they had back in 2004, but the Dragons can still be a good competitor in Europe and, of course, one of the biggest powerhouses in the Primeira Liga.
If Mou wants to demonstrate he’s not done yet, maybe a comeback to the team that gave him his first joys as a manager is the best decision to make right now. Maybe a good campaign with the Portuguese giants would shut Mourinho’s haters down and give him back the respect he lost during his stint with Man. Utd.
Bayern Munich has become a kind of German PSG as the Bavarians don’t count with so much competition in the Bundesliga, something that has made their level decrease in Europe. This season Bayern was relegated from the Champions League in the round of 16 by Liverpool, playing at home and displaying a very poor game.
This is a big team that could be a great destination for Mourinho. The Portuguese can take Bayern to the big stages of Europe again and just as we stated before, recover the fame he earned during his best days. Mou would be a big change in the things Bayern has been used to do so this move can be very interesting.
Following years of successes in Italy, Juventus have put all his attention and effort to win the Champions League once and for all, but so far they have been unable to do so. Many Juve fans believe Massimiliano Allegri as the boss has come to its end and now is time for a fresh start with new ideas.
In the past, Pep Guardiola sounded like a very good candidate for this job, but now Mourinho can become a strong candidate to lead La Vecchia Signora to the European title they are trying to win since they got back to the headlines. Juventus know the Portuguese boss for his time with Inter and they know what he is capable of doing; this has everything to be a win-win move.
