Man City, Newcastle alerted as Mourinho eyes Premiership return

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho is eyeing a return to the Premiership.

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho is eyeing a return to the Premiership.

The Sunday Express says Mourinho has told close friends that he wants to quit Italy and return to the Premier League in the summer.

Mourinho, whose Inter Milan side take on Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday, has privately confessed that he is not a big fan of Italian football.

This revelation is bound to encourage long-standing interest from both Manchester City and Newcastle United.

The job that Mourinho really wants back in England is to become Sir Alex Ferguson’s eventual successor.

The onerous task of stepping into the Scot’s shoes at Old Trafford appeals to Mourinho’s great sense of adventure.

But the ambitious Portuguese boss faces a wait, with Ferguson showing no signs of quitting despite 22 years at the helm.
