Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he will return to management in July, but remained coy on Manchester United speculation.
Mourinho has been linked with the United job since the dawn of time, with current managerial incumbent Louis van Gaal under increasing pressure at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman has guided his side to the FA Cup final, but Champions League qualification is out of the club’s hands heading into the final day.
Manchester City currently occupy the all-important fourth spot, and they face a trip to Swansea on the final day. They enjoy a two-point gap over United, who host Bournemouth.
When asked about the Manchester United job, Mourinho replied: “I don’t know. I know nothing about it really. I don’t have a club.
“In July, I will be back. So we are in May. May to July is nothing. I keep enjoying my life which I’m doing, keep enjoying my family. But in July I am back.
“It’s difficult because when you get a new club in this period normally the clubs have already done their work.
“I give you an example. I’m not the Chelsea manager, but I organised the Chelsea pre-season in many aspects because I did that 10 months ago.
“Clubs have their commercial, marketing departments always involved in everything. When a new manager arrives in May, June it’s very difficult to touch in some points, but we know that.”
