Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has today admitted he would be interested in coaching in France, opening up the possibility of summer switch to PSG as Carlo Ancelotti's replacement.
PSG, who boast some of the richest owners in world football, would be an attractive option to the Portuguese boss as he looks to increase his domination of Europe after winning titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.
When asked whether he would be interested in managing in France, Mourinho told Canal +: 'It's a possibility but I do not know when. I can not say when. Why not!'
France bound Mourinho could leave Madrid for the French capital in the summer
Mourinho faces an increasingly uncertain future at the Bernabeu as Real struggle to close the 19-point gap on rivals Barcelona and after another disappointing performance from his team in midweek against Manchester United in the Champions League.
Reports in Spain suggest that he is at odds with several key members of the playing staff and club directors which could spell a swift end to his time in Spain.
The 49-year-old has been linked with a return to England with either former club Chelsea or champions Manchester City but ambitious PSG could move to the top of the pile.
Wanted: Mourinho remains a popular figure at Chelsea, but a return looks unlikely
The French league leaders have been relatively disappointing despite a lavish summer spending spree which saw star names Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Ezequiel Lavezzi being brought to the club by Ancelotti and director of football Leonardo.
Real Madrid are in action tonight against Real Vallecano as Mourinho's side try to keep pace with second place Atletico Madrid in the pursuit for guaranteed Champions League football next season.
