Manchester City have moved to angrily deny a report that they have approached Jose Mourinho to become their new manager. A report in The Sun on Wednesday morning claimed that the Inter Milan boss had been made an offer to replace Mark Hughes as boss at Eastlands.
They insist the article is untrue and are ready to take legal action.
A statement said: "Following the publication of an article in today's Sun newspaper by Ian McGarry which states that Jose Mourinho has rejected a £12.5million offer to manage Manchester City Football Club, the Club would like to clarify the following.
"The article is completely without foundation and the Club is considering legal action to address the matter. "
