Jose Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United

Former Manchester United and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is in talks to replace Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager.

Pochettino, 47, was sacked as Spurs boss on Tuesday after five years in charge of the north London club.

The Argentine led Spurs to the Champions League final last season, where they lost to Liverpool.

Portuguese Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by United in December 2018.

No deal has yet been reached between Mourinho and Spurs.

The ex-Chelsea, Porto, Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager has turned down a number of job opportunities, including in China, Spain and Portugal, since leaving Old Trafford.
