Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly been identified by Tottenham as the No.1 candidate to replace Harry Redknapp, should the latter become England manager.

Redknapp is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Fabio Capello as England boss, although remains coy over his interest in the position.

Spurs, though, have already started scouring the market for a possible successor to Redknapp, and Mourinho has been tipped as an ideal candidate.

According to, the Real Madrid manager would he Daniel Levy's first-choice to take over at White Hart Lane, amid suggestions he plans to leave the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.

Levy is said to want to bring in a big name should Redknapp leave, although one that has previous Premier League experience and a proven track record.

Mourinho won the title twice with Chelsea before leaving the club in acrimonious circumstances in September 2007, before joining Inter Milan the following year.

The 49-year-old moved to Madrid two years later, but has reportedly decided he will leave the club at the end of the season, regardless of what he achieves this term.
