José Mourinho has dropped a bombshell that he could make a sensational return to Serie A someday.
The Portuguese manager, 56, has not been coaching since he was axed at Manchester United last season.
But the 'Special One' has now admitted that a return to Italy could happen.
"In the future? Always soccer, and always a high level. Italy? Could be a possibility," the ex-Real Madrid and Chelsea boss told Sky Sport Italia.
Mourinho enjoyed a successful stint at Inter Milan as his side became the first Italian team in history to capture the treble.
The former United boss had been linked with Roma ahead of Paulo Fonseca's appointment in June.
While Mourinho could end up snubbing a return to Italy amid interest from China, he revealed that he would return to work this month.
He told French radio station RMC: "I have a lot of qualities and one of them is to respect other clubs and their management.
"I have never spoken like 'this club wanted me, they contacted me.'
"When I left Manchester United in December, I immediately took the decision I want to work from summer. I hope to be back to work in July in a project I really like."
Mourinho said last month that his dream would be to manage a national team and compete in the World Cup and the Euros.
But he wouldn't rule out a return to club management should the right opportunity arise.
"Winning a fifth championship in a different country or the Champions League with a third club are things I'd like to do," he said.
"I wouldn't do it just for that. I only go where a project convinces me.
"I want to be happy, not necessarily win, I want to be happy and I don't want to accept a proposal without being convinced of it, that's what I've always thought.
"That's why if [a club] told me 'Today there are no conditions to win, but we want you to create the conditions to win,' then I would evaluate it."
Which club should Mourinho manage next?
