Mourinho has been out of management for 11 months, having been sacked by United in December 2018.

While the Portuguese failed to turn United back into title challengers, he boasts one of the best records of any boss in world football, having won every major club honour in the game.

He has been working for Sky Sports on their Premier League coverage this season but is seeking a return to management and the Spurs job would appeal to the 56-year-old.

Bookmakers have now installed Mourinho as the heavy favourite to succeed Pochettino, with chairman Daniel Levy keen to make a quick appointment.

Massimiliano Allegri, Eddie Howe and Julian Nagelsmann are others in the running for the role.
