Paris Saint-Germain have made an approach to Jose Mourinho to become their new manager this summer, according to Sky Sports.
Only two days ago, it was reported that the Portuguese has signed a three-year deal to take over at Manchester United next season.
However, various media outlets have claimed that Mourinho will take charge of the Red Devils in the summer, while others have contested that Louis Van Gaal will see out his contract at Old Trafford.
Mourinho has also been linked with the job at Real Madrid, with some reports claiming that Los Blancos President Florentino Perez is desperate to bring him back to the club. The Portuguese recently turned down an offer to coach the Syria national team in their pursuit to secure World Cup qualification.
Mourinho led Chelsea to the Premier League and League Cup double last season, but was sacked in December after a horrible run of results left the Blues languishing near the relegation zone.
PSG have been known to consider “The Special One” to become their next coach. Mourinho is known to have a friendship with the club’s chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who has tried to sign Mourinho twice and still believes the 53-year-old would be able to guide PSG to a Champions League triumph.
However, Twitter was very split on Sky’s news about their approach to Mourinho.

and the doubters!
I think it’s a clear PR stunt to force Man Utd’s hand from Mourinho – again. It’s pretty shocking it’s taken MONTHS and no advancement.

Don’t even care about Sky Sports reporting Jose Mourinho to PSG. Jorge Mendes is having them on. Mourinho is definitely a Red Devil.

Mourinho’s men behind the scene making up the PSG stories to push Man United to act fast or there is genuine interest. Time will tell

Not convinced Mourinho will go to a country where a kit man can win the league https://t.co/7jbFUFk69o

Could be some truth behind the Mourinho to PSG talk, though Blanc only signed a new deal two months ago. Possibly PR with Mendes behind it.

I can almost imagine Mourinho, Jorge Mendes & co spreading PSG rumours so United wake up from their deep sleep to finalize the deal! #MUFC

Mourinho’s camp are playing it really well. First, there was Jose-Moratti dinner. Now, PSG approaching them. Pressuring United. #MUFC

PSG contacting Mourinho is no issue. Its an open secret how hard he craves the @ManUtd job. Only Ed Woodward can screw things up
