Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to pick up another job barely one month after being sacked by Manchester United.

He reigned at Old Trafford for just two and a half years and won an Europa League and EFL Cup titles for the club.

Daily Mail however reveals that Mourinho can now take up another job after being paid off by the Red Devils.

Reports coming out of the tactician's camp revealed on Wednesday night that: "There are no issues over Jose’s contract with Manchester United. Everything has been sorted.

"Jose is able to take on another job right now, but is in no rush. He is very relaxed about it and would be happy to wait until the end of the season if he needs to."

The former Chelsea handler signed an improved contract with United a year ago which was due to expire at the end of the 2019-20 season, with an option of a further season.

But the manager was let go by the club due to their struggles in all competitions this campaign as they were sixth on the log before he was sacked.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are one of the top clubs who are waiting to secure the services of the Portuguese manager for the second time.

Mourinho managed Los Blancos from 2010-2013 earlier in his career and he has been heavily linked with a move to bring Mourinho back to the Bernabeu.

According to the publication, Real boss Florentino Perez remains a huge fan and the Champions League holders will do all they can to land the manager.

The Galacticos were beaten 2-0 by Real Sociedad on Sunday as they slipped 10 points behind leaders Barcelona.

Manager Santiago Solari is under huge pressure having replaced Julen Lopetegui in the Spanish capital at the end of October.

The source added: "There has been no contact, but they did get in touch with Jose after Lopetegui was dismissed, but he told them he was the manager of Manchester United and totally committed to the club."

Inter Milan are also considering a move for the out of job manager Mourinho as they hope to improve their standings and compete for titles.

Legit.ng recalls that Benfica were said to have approached Jose Mourinho to become their next manager.

This comes after the club sacked title winning coach Rui Vitoria on Thursday, January 3, who ended his three-and-a-half year spell at the club.

Vitoria had led Benfica to back-to-back League titles at the club but has seen his side struggle to keep pace with the likes of Porto this season.
