They are the sentiments of his agent Kia Joorabchian who says that Hughes, who stepped down from his post at Craven Cottage yesterday, is certainly open to the possibility of remaining in London.
"I think you are now talking about big clubs like Chelsea that Mark has aspirations to manage," he told Sky Sports News.
"But Chelsea clearly, they have some candidates at the moment and we will wait and see. I'm sure that if they approach Mark, then Mark would be more than happy to speak with them, it would probably be an honour for him.
"But at the moment, again like I tell you, we have not spoken to any single club or anything.
"It (why he left) was first and foremost to determine Mark's future at Fulham and now we have done that he can start to rest a little bit and we'll explore the options in the next few weeks."
