Paris Saint-Germain believe they can lure Jose Mourinho away from Manchester United at the end of the season, according to reports.
On Sunday evening, the 54-year-old sparked rumours of a potential move to PSG after giving a glowing reference about the Ligue 1 leaders to French television station Telefoot.
And The Sun now claims that PSG will make an attempt to make Mourinho their manager next summer unless Unai Emery is able to guide the club to glory in the Champions League.
The report also claims that the French club are confident of striking a deal with Mourinho due to the presence of their sporting director Antero Henrique, who worked with the United manager at Porto.
Mourinho hit back at questions regarding a move to PSG ahead of United’s Champions League clash with Benfica on Wednesday.
‘I’m not signing a new five-year contract and I’m not leaving for PSG,’ said the Portuguese.
‘One day it [the media] says that I’m going to sign a five-year contract, £1bn per season, and then the next day you say that I’m leaving and I’m going to Paris St-Germain.
‘I think that’s the answer – the answer is that nothing is happening.’
