But Mourinho has refused to speak out on his exit from Old Trafford and, despite not being directly asked about his United departure, added: "I always learned that when you leave a club, you do not talk". His team won the Football League Super Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League.

Mourinho, who was sacked by United last month after two-and-a-half years in charge, told Correio da Manha he has no intention of coaching in his native Portugal for the time being.

Jose Mourinho is not interested in a return to Portugal for his next management role and is giving away very little about where he might end up.

"It's a tremendous honour when you return to a club where you've been, but I'm talking to you and I will not talk to anyone else".

No one was surprised by his sacking, and Mourinho himself had spent the final months of his job looking like a man who had checked out ages ago and was simply waiting for his employers to run out of patience.

However, the La Liga heavyweights face a major stumbling block in the form of their former manager's severance package at Manchester United, who are due to pay him £15 million.

He has previously rejoined a former club as he did with his two spells at Chelsea and is seeing similar moves discussed when it comes to possible openings at Real Madrid and Inter .

Now that he is unemployed again, Mourinho has been repeatedly linked with a number of high-profile jobs.

But the manager was let go by the club due to their struggles in all competitions this campaign as they were sixth on the log before he was sacked.

Mourinho and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino are the front-runners for the job when Real do make a decision on Lopetegui's long-term successor, but the latter is not available at the moment and is likely to cost more than £40m to get out of his contract in north London.

He has, reportedly, already rejected the opportunity to return to Benfica, the first club he managed.
