Former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri would relish a return to England and the chance to build another title-winning side.
Ranieri was in charge of the Londoners for almost four years until the end of the 2003-04 season, leading them to second place in the Premier League - behind Arsenal's 'Invincibles' - and the Champions League semi-finals in his final campaign.
"Never say never. Now I want to finish here, but one day I would like to come back to England," he said. "I like the atmosphere in England and the mentality of the supporters. Why not?"
Ranieri swapped Chelsea for an unsuccessful stint with Valencia in Spain, but he admits he saw Mourinho's subsequent success as partly his own work.
"I didn't win anything but the crowd knew very well that I built a good team,
"(Did I get enough) credit? No. I wanted to finish my job but it was impossible.
"Whoever arrived after me could win because I bought a lot of strong players."
Ranieri added: "I was very proud that John Terry, Frank Lampard, all the other of my players won something.
"That was important for them and also for me, because I could say I started to build that Chelsea."
