With Real Madrid looking certain to show manager Jose Mourinho the exit door this summer, it leaves people guessing as to where the 'Special One' will show up next.
Currently the two favourite destinations for the Real Madrid boss are former club Chelsea, and French side Paris Saint-Germain.
Paris Saint-Germain are currently top of the Ligue 1 table, but many critics have pointed out that the squad is not playing and performing like a team that feel as if they are on the brink of becoming a major European player, to rival the likes of Real Madrid, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Barcelona, and there have even been suggestions that current manager Carlo Ancelotti could be shown the exit regardless of what he achieves this season.
Last week, Jose Mourinho told Canal+ in France: "It is a possibility, but I dont know when. I cannot say when."
If anybody thought that his future is decided, it appears to be far from it. PSG would like to have Mourinho for next season, and reports that discussions have taken place over wages, length of contract, and budgets already agreed.
But Roman Abramovich would also welcome the 50-year-old back at his old club Chelsea. So, Mourinho has to decide: he wants to enjoy his profession again after a difficult time at the Bernabeu, where he lost the backing of key members of the squad months ago.
Chelsea would offer him the possibility of being treated like a God by fans that miss him. But PSG would give him the chance of almost a guaranteed league title and domestic cups. Undivided love or win straight away? That is the decision that Mourinho will have to make.
Other clubs will want to interfere in that dichotomy, and reports that Premier League team Manchester City might be interested if current manager Roberto Mancini fails to win any silverware this season, and with Arsenal manager Arsen Wenger looking like he could be calling time on his tenure as the Gunners boss, it could cause a very interesting managerial tug-of-war.
What is clear is that Real Madrid is working towards life without Mourinho. He advised on Gareth Bale as the main signing for next season, and Los Blancos chiefs will try to get him. It remains to be seen if they do, but, according to sources at the club, Mourinho will not coach the Welsh winger if he comes.
