Man City offer Mourinho £10M-a-year deal to quit Real Madrid
The Mail on Sunday says with Roberto Mancini said by one insider at Manchester City to be on borrowed time following the club's Europa League exit on Thursday night, Mourinho is the club's No1 target to replace the Italian this summer.
The man who turned Chelsea into Premier League champions will be offered a £10million-a-year deal to take charge at Eastlands and will have to choose between staying at Real Madrid while waiting for Sir Alex Ferguson to retire or joining City and going head-to-head with his old friend and rival.
Mourinho is keen to return to the Premier League sooner rather than later after the breakdown of his relationship with Madrid president Florentino Perez and director general Jorge Valdano.
City will make a convincing case for him to take over from Mancini, with money to spend and a golden legacy to build.
