Jose Mourinho has hinted that a return to England could be on the cards after revealing he has the option to leave current club Internazionale at the end of the season.
Both Liverpool and Manchester United have been mentioned as possible destinations for the former Chelsea coach.
Mourinho's future at Inter continues to be the subject of much debate with the outspoken Portuguese's critical comments of Italian football and his uneasy relationship with club president Massimo Moratti all adding fuel to the fire.
But now Mourinho himself has revealed for the first time that he has the option to end his two-year reign at the San Siro.
"The club and I signed a very objective contract until 2012 because we want to work together," he said in the News of the World.
"But there is a cancellation clause that Inter will pay me if they want my departure and another that I will pay Inter if I want to leave.
"It's all simple and very objective. There will never be a never-ending story with us as has happened in the past with other people. We are honest people with honest contracts and objectivity."
He added: "How can my love for Italy have finished if I never had any love for it? I like working at Inter. I like difficult things. So I'm okay."
