Former Manchester United and Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has dropped a massive hint regarding the possible whereabouts of his future, hinting at a possible reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus.
The Portuguese tactician has been without a job since being relieved of his duties by Premier League giants Manchester United in December following a string of poor results.
Juve recently confirmed that Massimiliano Allegri will leave the club after guiding the Serie A giants to five league titles in as many seasons since arriving from AC Milan in 2014.
As a result, the Bianconeri are reportedly on the lookout for a new manager and Mourinho, who enjoyed a successful two-year spell with Inter Milan between 2008 and 2010, has seemingly put his name into the mix to coach Juventus after lifting the lid on a conversation with one of his former players, with many publications assuming he was talking about Ronaldo.
"One of the players that I have a great relation with him, he plays for a team and he told me, 'You should come here next season' and I told him, 'They don't love me,'" he told beIN SPORTS
"He told me, 'You win three matches and they will start loving you.'
"This is just… we are professionals and we have respect for each other, even when we have bad reactions on the pitch, in the press conference, a player be more aggressive with another one.
"It's people from the same industry and in the end, people respect each other."
Mourinho is no stranger to coaching in Italy's top flight, having enjoyed a memorable spell with Inter Milan, during which he g"uided the Nerazzurri to back-to-back league titles while also clinching the UEFA Champions League trophy.
