PSG join United in luring Mourinho - reports

Cape Town - Jose Mourinho has been approached by Paris Saint-Germain to take over from Laurent Blanc as manager of the club, according to reports.
Following a string of bad results at Chelsea, Mourinho has been without a job since December 2015 as Roman Abramovic once again sacked the Portuguese manager.
The 53-year-old is now being linked with managing PSG after Blanc's side were surprisingly knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Manchester City last week.
Blanc recently penned a two-year deal in February but Sky Sports reveal that PSG chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, wants Mourinho to head the helm at the Paris outfit.
'The Special One' is said to have a friendship with Al-Khelaifi as PSG tried to lure Mourinho to the club on two different occasions.
Mourinho is also touted to take over Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United following the Dutchman's swirling second-season in charge.
"I am always linked with jobs and in the summer I will have a job, but in this moment I can promise you I do not have a contract with any club," said Mourinho on April 9.
United will review Van Gaal's position during the off season as his job remains under threat. The former Netherlands mentor's contract expires at the end of June 2017.
Mourinho, who has managed two different sides (Porto and Inter Milan) to Champions League triumph, has a choice to make as he waits for the United post to become vacant or will he finally give PSG a go.
