Ex-Man Utd boss Mourinho in talks with Guangzhou Evergrande

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is being linked with a move to China.

The Telegraph says Mourinho has held shock talks to replace Fabio Cannavaro as manager of Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Mourinho, who left Manchester United in December, is reportedly in talks with China's richest man, Hui Ka Yan, over potentially taking charge of the CSL's most dominant side - as well as potentially the national team.

Hui, also known as Xu Jiayin - chairman of the Evergrande Group, one of China's biggest property companies - and worth a cool £33bn, met with Mourinho over Chinese New Year and is determined to recruit the two-time Champions League winner.

Mourinho has been determined to return to management this summer, but has seen a number of potential avenues back into the game come and go.
