However, the La Liga heavyweights face a major stumbling block in the form of their former manager's severance package at Manchester United, who are due to pay him £15 million.

Hopefully, Mourinho will take out time and speak about his reign at United during the tournament in the United Arab Emirates, which kicked-off on January 5.

This alerted a host of European club's, with Benfica and Real said to have approached the Portuguese tactician.

JOSE MOURINHO claimed he has "no intention" of managing Benfica as a return to Real Madrid is still open.

Mourinho was dismissed from United in December after two years at the helm of the English club.

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he never planned on taking up any job in Portugal after leaving Manchester United.

"There are no issues over Jose's contract with Manchester United".

'I haven't received an offer and even if I did, obviously the president of Benfica and the club itself would be the first to know my decision, ' he told the website of the Correo da Manha newspaper.

But to help end all the speculation on this subject, I will say that at this moment, today, I have no intention of working in Portugal, " the Portuguese said.

After Benfica sacked Rui Vitoria, president Luis Filipe Vieira suggested Mourinho, who started his managerial career with a brief stint at the club, was a top target. [Returning to Madrid or Inter would be] a huge honour, but I'm talking to you and no-one else right now.

And according to Portuguese sports daily A Bola, the Benfica chief is serious about wooing Mourinho and is scheduled to hold a one-on-one meeting with the former two-time Champions League winning manager.
