The Portuguese coach has not been short of option since departing Old Trafford, with reports suggesting Benfica, Inter Milan and Los Blancos are all interested in his services.

On Thursday, he already insisted he would not go back to Benfica, but he sounds open to a return to Real or Inter.

"If any professional – a manager or a player – is wanted by a former club, it means we did something positive," he told Correo da Manha, as quoted by ESPN.

"I felt this when I went back to Chelsea (in 2013.)

"When any professional returns to a club it is a tremendous honour. They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there.

"But when I am not managing, I love that people do not talk about me and the best way to achieve that is for me to also not talk."

The 55-year-old will cover Premier League and Asian Cup games for the broadcaster.
