‘Mourinho wants to be Arsenal manager’ so he can hold another record in England

Jose Mourinho wants to be manager of Arsenal so he can hold another record in England.

The Portuguese boss wants to take over from under-pressure coach Unai Emery so he can be the first person to win a major trophy at three English clubs.

Mourinho won the Europa League and the League Cup with Manchester United as well as seven major trophies at Chelsea.

According to the Sun, the 56-year-old is keen on managing another Premier League club, with Arsenal a likely candidate as Emery’s side have started slowly this season.

Sportsmail revealed earlier this month that Mourinho is monitoring Tottenham’s situation as he looks for a route back into management.

Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by United last December, less than a year into a new contract that was due to run until 2020.

Spurs are among the clubs that appeal to the Portuguese manager.

Real Madrid, coached by Zinedine Zidane, are another and Mourinho remains in contact and on good terms with club president Florentino Perez.

Mourinho, 56, is prepared to bide his time and wait for the ideal opportunity. He has been working predominantly as a TV pundit and joined Sky ahead of the season.

He has declined offers at former club Benfica and a £90million proposal from Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.
