​Tottenham make contact with ex-Man Utd manager Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur are considering an approach for Jose Mourinho as their next manager.

Soccerlink suggests that if Mauricio Pochettino were to leave this summer, with Manchester United his likely destination, Spurs are thinking of the next steps.

And those steps could involve Mourinho, who has a preference for continuing his career in the Premier League.

While Spurs would not offer the Portuguese the kind of transfer budget he has enjoyed at his previous jobs, they would give him a chance to compete at the top end of the league.

Meanwhile, Pochettino is a significant target for United, especially with their boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer struggling to replicate the form of his interim spell at the club.

Solskjaer's sacking could start a managerial merry-go-round that leads to Pochettino and United and Mourinho at Spurs.
