Jose Mourinho Is Being Linked With Everton Job
In a bizarre turn of events, Jose Mourinho has been linked with the Everton managerial post and we are all scratching our heads.
Despite the Toffees not actively searching for a new manager, odds are at 5/1 on the Portuguese becoming their new manager.
In fact, Paddy Power have recently cut the former Manchester United manager from 12/1 to 4/1 to make a move to Goodison Park.
Mourinho, who was sacked earlier this season, won just seven out of his opening 17 Premier League matches.
Mourinho has previously stated that: "I know what I don't want to do"
This has caused speculation on which club he will manage next. Would Mourinho consider managing a club who aren't in the Champions League?
SkyBet have Mourinho is second place to join Everton, just behind Italian side Inter Milan at 4/1. Monaco and PSG are both at 8/1 to sign the highly rated manager.

Current blues boss Marco Silva has come under a bit of criticism recently, as his sit 11th in the table on 40 points.
Everton's director of football Marcel Brands is running a long-term project to get them back at the top.
Does this mean Marco Silva will be given time at Everton to succeed, or will they bring in Mourinho, who has a history of success?
Mourinho being linked to Everton.....Don't do it!!! You've just got rid of Allardyce. You don't want the Portuguese version. Although I'd enjoy Ole smashing him twice a season Everton fans have suffered enough
