Jose Mourinho has been sounded out about the liverpool manager’s post amid continuing doubts over Rafa Benitez’s Anfield future.

Despite heading for the Serie A title in his first season at San Siro, Mourinho has indicated to advisers he would welcome a return to the Barclays Premier League. Taking charge of Manchester United is his main objective, and he is believed to have been earmarked as an eventual replacement for Sir Alex Ferguson, possibly at the end of next season.
