La Liga Club Have Already Contacted Jose Mourinho About Managerial Job

Jose Mourinho could be back in football soon, with La Liga side Valencia already making contact with the former Tottenham Hotspur boss, following his sacking on Monday morning.

The crazy goings on of the European Super League meant that Mourinho getting sacked from his job at Spurs on Monday morning went under the radar.

Mourinho's time in north London was brought to a premature end, just six days before he was due to take his side into the Carabao Cup final with Manchester City, following the draw with Everton last Friday.

The former Special One has now left five clubs prematurely, not by his own choosing, and earned a phenomenal £93.5 million in compensation, reportedly.

And he could soon be back earning, as Valencia have already made contact with the 58-year-old.

According to Spanish outlet Todo Fichajes, the team's owner Peter Lim has spoken to Mourinho about a return to La Liga, having previously managed Real Madrid.

The manager is reportedly set to fly to the Mestalla in the current days to continue to talks, despite Javi Gracia still being in charge.

Gracia's time in charge of the club is expected to come to an end in the summer, and he actually nearly left after just five games at the beginning of the season.

The club have since fallen to 14th in La Liga, after selling off many of their best players last summer, and are struggling to reach their previous high levels.

The report says that the club's board favours a move for Granada boss Diego Martinez, who led his team to the Europa League semi-finals this season and is in eighth in the league, but Lim wants Mourinho.

Mourinho has also been linked with a move to Celtic, who are currently without a permanent manager, although he seems a long shot, with the bookies having him at 12/1 to move north of the border.

At Spurs, former midfielder Ryan Mason has become the Premier League's youngest ever manager at just 29-years-old.

The former Spurs player, who had to retire early due to a fractured skull during his time at Hull City, will take charge of Wednesday night's league game against Southampton before the weekend's final against Pep Guardiola's side.
