The idea that Jose Mourinho would write a six-page letter described at a 'love letter' to Manchester United detailing how he would turn around their fortunes and his reputation has been described as absurd."
A national newaper has made the claim today which Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes has rubbished.
Mourinho sacked in December, by Roman Abramovich, is available for work and has made it clear that he is ready to return to top-flight management straight away.
But in the report, it suggests that he has detailed what players would be needed, how he would change his reputation and thus make him more palatable for the United board to accept.
Mendes issued the following statement: "With regard to news published today in the British Press about Jose Mourinho, Jorge Mendes explained the following,"It does not occur to anyone that a coach like Jose Mourinho can write letters to clubs offering their services. It is absolutely ridiculous and totally absurd."
Mourinho has has long coveted the United position and it's the only one in England that he truely wants.
Has Chelsea nit made overtures for his return to Stamford Bridge, United would have been his destination following the end of his tenure at Real Madrid.
However United opted to replace Sir Alex Ferguson, with David Moyes and he failed miserably, opening the door to Louis Van Gaal.
Mourinho is on high alert should United sack Van Gaal either before the season ends or during the summer. He is currently spending his sabbatical from football by flying out to China, going home to see his ill father and spending time with his family in London.
One thing's for sure, is that while Chelsea go searching for another manager to replce interim Guus Hiddink in the summer, the best manager the club has ever had will most likely be in charge of the most famous one in England next season, should he get his wish, love letter or no love letter.
But will United be facing Chelsea in the league next season?
Relegation for the Blues is still on the cards and a point at least, at the Emirates this afternoon, is vital in their quest to avoid the ultimate indignity.
