But capturing former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho would be the biggest coup yet for the mega-rich club.

It’s understood that Mourinho and his agent Jorge Mendes met with Zhang Dazhong, the chief executive of Chinese marketing company Alisports, with the idea of discussing a potential role for the Portuguese in the Chinese Super League.

The role wouldn’t a management job but the league are looking at offering Mourinho a chance to get involved with helping to improve and develop football in China.

It’s believed that Mourinho, who was sacked by Chelsea in December, is considering the role but wants a clause in his contract giving him permission to leave if he’s offered any big managerial jobs in Europe.

This revelation is a major blow to Manchester United who are keen for Mourinho to replace Louis van Gaal at the end of the season. In fact, reports in Spain suggested that Mourinho has already agreed to take over at Old Trafford.
