Former Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has been the latest coach to be linked with a move to Celtic.
Speculation has mounted in recent days, with reports suggesting the Hoops approached the 58-year-old following his sacking in north London.
If money was no object, would you take Mourinho at Celtic?
Reliable reporter Alan Nixon has now had his say on the rumours regarding Celtic and Mourinho. The Sun journalist was asked by a Hoops fan on Friday evening if there is any truth in the links to the Portuguese native.
He replied in three simple words: “Can’t see it.”
Transfer Tavern take
We’re with Nixon here in feeling that a move for Mourinho won’t gather any real pace.
For starters, look at his salary at Spurs. He was thought to be on a £15m-per-year deal in the English capital. Former Celtic managers Neil Lennon and Brendan Rodgers were on £2.4m-a-year and £2.3m-a-year respectively, so that just shows the huge financial comparison.
Roma and Valencia are also thought to be keen on Mourinho’s services, so due to the money which would be required to lure him to Parkhead amid interest from other clubs, we can’t see this one materialising.
