Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has reportedly rejected a managerial offer from French Ligue 1 side, Lyon.
RMC claims Mourinho was approached by the Ligue 1 outfit after they sacked Sylvinho, who was only appointed in late May.
Lyon have picked up just nine points in nine games this season, losing four games and winning just two.
Lyon chiefs were hoping Mourinho would join to guide them back to the top four.
However, the Special One apparently informed Lyon that he wants to return to the Premier League.
It’s reckoned Mourinho is holding out for the Tottenham job as pressure grows on Mauricio Pochettino.
Reports also claim Jose is keeping a close eye on old side Real Madrid, with Zinedine Zidane struggling for consistency after his return to the Bernabeu.
Newcastle could also make an audacious move for Mourinho with potential buyer and former Chelsea ally, Peter Kenyon, admitting the Portuguese tactician would be his first choice for the job.
