Jose Mourinho is planning to return to management in June.
The 56-year old Portuguese manager has been out of work since being dismissed by Manchester United in December, but now, after a suitable chance to recharge his batteries, he is keen to take up the managerial reins again.
And, it looks like he may be after a change of scene and wants to explore life in a fresh country. Having already managed in his native Portugal, England, Italy and Spain, he is now considering France as the destination for his next challenge, with two clubs, Monaco, and Lyon, in particular, singled out.
The “Special One” has won the league title in every country he has managed, and likes the challenge of adding a fifth national championship to his CV, but will have his work cut out with either Monaco or Lyon – if they want him – given the dominance of PSG in France.
