Things seem to be going well for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United at the moment.

The Red Devils won the Europa League and EFL Cup last season, qualified for the Champions League and took that momentum into this campaign where they are still unbeaten and occupy a healthy second place in the Premier League.

But, as successful as the Special One is, he has a habit of not getting too comfortable at any club he manages.

Mourinho has never spent more than three years at a club, but he has won league titles in Portugal, Spain, England and Italy on top of winning the Champions League twice and a treble at Inter Milan.

So, now that he is into his second season at Old Trafford, how long will Mourinho last in his current role?

In a recent interview with French TV, Mourinho said he will not end his managerial career with United, adding he has a "desire to do new things".

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague believes there are a couple of jobs Mourinho has his eye on. One being the Portugal national team and the other being Paris Saint-Germain.

When Sky Sports asked Balague what Mourinho meant during his French interview, the pundit cut to the chase.

Liverpool v Manchester United - Premier League

Balague said: "That he will end up at PSG. I think it was always part of his journey.

"He would go to a team that is superior in the French league but still has not shown - let's see what happens this season - that they have the level to win the Champions League.

"We know Jose is capable of making that kind of jump if given the team. The squad is there to challenge for the next few years but those words also coincide with wanting a new contract so let's wait and see."


Of course, PSG would fit the profile of the kind of club that is attractive to Mourinho. They are already a big European power, they have serious, serious money and already have a cast of top stars for Mourinho to sink his teeth into.

For now, Mourinho has a lot left to achieve with United. The Red Devils have improved drastically this season and look like they have a squad close to being capable of challenging for the Premier League title and perhaps, the Champions League itself.

Knowing Mourinho's record, they only have another year-and-a-half to do it.
