Jose Mourinho has revealed that he has already turned down "three or four offers" to return to management.

But the former Manchester United boss insists he is looking forward to getting back down to business this summer.

The Special One has been out of work since leaving Old Trafford in December, dismissed after a dismal start to the season.

The 55-year-old was linked with a return to Real Madrid earlier this month, amid suggestions president Florentino Perez was keen to take him back to the Spanish capital.

However, amid reports that a number of senior players vetoed Perez's plans, it was Zinedine Zidane who made a shock return to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"The coach position is very special I like the daily work, competing in several competitions, playing games," he continued.

"I want to train a club, I want to find a place for this summer, in June for the preseason.

"And I know what I want, not the name of the club, but the work style, workload.

"I know what I want and that's what I hope for. "
