Jose Mourinho will join beIN SPORTS, the global sports broadcaster, this week as part of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 and English Premier League coverage, which viewers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) enjoy exclusively on the leading sports channel.

Jose Mourinho has only been out of a job for a few weeks, but he is already set to return to our television screens.

Since they did just that things have improved immeasurably for the Red Devils, with interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer winning five games out of five (four in the league) and bringing a feel-good factor back to Old Trafford in the process.

But, Mourinho could indeed be primed for a quick return to club football management, with one of his former clubs showing an interest in him. Speculation is rife over the Real job at the moment, with Santiago Solari struggling for positive results in the wake of Julen Lopetegui's departure in October.

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.

No one was surprised by his sacking, and Mourinho himself had spent the final months of his job looking like a man who had checked out ages ago and was simply waiting for his employers to run out of patience.

Cosmos can still also be powered by a PC or a laptop, but it seems like mobile will be the next steps for VR functionality. HTC adds that users no longer have to point with the controllers, making manoeuvres faster and more intuitive.

Now he's had his say on a potential return to Real Madrid.

He has previously rejoined a former club as he did with his two spells at Chelsea and is seeing similar moves discussed when it comes to possible openings at Real Madrid and Inter .

On Thursday, he already insisted he would not go back to Benfica, but he sounds open to a return to Real or Inter.

Mourinho said he did not want to talk about his dismissal by United.

"I have learned that, when you leave a club, you don't go around talking about it, you don't wash your dirty laundry in public", Mourinho said.
