Mourinho rejects Lyon to stay free for Barcelona

France Football says the former Chelsea boss has already rejected an offer from Olympique Lyon as he wants to keep himself free for a move to the Nou Camp.

It's been revealed Mourinho has met with Barca directors to show them a DVD he has put together regarding the current team's flaws - and where they need to strengthen.

Barca sports chief Txiki Begiristain was impressed by Mourinho's presentation and put forward their list of summer transfer targets for the Portuguese to consider - which included Karim Benzema (Lyon), Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich), Dani Alves and Seydou Keita (Sevilla), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Maicon (Inter Milan) and Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb).
