As one of the biggest names in football, Jose Mourinho courts controversy and excitement wherever he goes. The Portuguese, for example, has been quite hurtfully crude about the German and French leagues in the past. Having previously flirted with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, this summer a move to France could happen – this time to Olympique Lyonnais. The other, more concrete offer is a move to come and be the head coach of Bayern Munich.
Though Mourinho and Bayern might need to seem like an immediate fit, he’s been very positive about the German game recently. Though a return to Real Madrid was recently mooted and never came to pass, Mourinho is still highly rated at the top end of the sport.
While he might no longer be the trailblazer of 2004, he still retains huge respect among many chairmen. One club who would suit his ego and his style, though, maybe Bayern. Despite former Croatia manager Niko Kovac wrestling back control of the club and looking set to win a Bundesliga title for his former employers, his coat is still seen as being on a loose peg.
A move for a more ambitious manager might be likely, especially with FC Bayern set to spend a fair amount in the summer. Though it might not seem like a likely move, there is every chance that Bayern moves on Kovac and look to bring in someone high profile. With his European record still strong, could Mourinho finally find himself taking the move to Bavaria?
