Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho could potentially take over at Paris Saint-Germain when Laurent Blanc leaves the club, according to sources in France.
Le 10 Sport claims that although the Special One is tied to Stamford Bridge until 2017, he could hook-up with the Ligue 1 champions at some point in the future - a notion that he himself took care not to dismiss. In an interview with French publication RMC, Mourinho said that while he was concentrating on life with Chelsea, the idea of managing PSG was not to be rubbished.
“In football, you should never say never. But today I am very happy to Chelsea,” the Blues boss said.
“This is a new project for me, a new one built Chelsea with a new team. I am very happy. My family feels so good here at the moment, I do not think another future here. But I love football and if one day I am no longer Chelsea , why not drive the PSG?"
According to Le 10 such an outlook will only fuel PSG’s desire to have Mourinho as their next coach. As things stand current boss Blanc has a contract which runs until 2015, though the powers that be at the Parc des Princes have offered no inclination that they will hand him an extension.
Of course the chances of Mourinho leaving Chelsea anytime soon are slim to none, but the idea of him replacing Blanc in the long-term may be food for thought for fans of both clubs.
