Manchester United paid 16.6 million euros to Jose Mourinho after his dismissal, Daily Mail reported.

Mourinho's time at Real between 2010-2013 - which brought a league title and a Spanish Cup but saw them largely play second fiddle to Barcelona -ended as it did at United and Chelsea, with bad results and discord in the dressing room.

"Jose is able to take on another job right now, but is in no rush".

This alerted a host of European club's, with Benfica and Real said to have approached the Portuguese tactician.

For now, Santiago Solari seems to have his future up in the air, with Real Madrid in talks with former manager Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils informed the 55-year-old that his services were no longer required at Old Trafford on December 18 .

Jose Mourinho has refused to criticise his former club Manchester United in one of the first interviews he has given since his sacking by the Old Trafford club.

The Ex-Man United manager then said that if indeed that was the case, Benfica would have been the first to spread the news.

"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.

"Today I have no intention of returning to Portugal. At the moment, I'm fine as I am", Mourinho added.

Until the end of the season, Norwegian specialist Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer is appointed acting Manchester United head coach. Benfica aren't an option for me today.

Mourinho began his coaching career at Benfica in 2000 but was only in charge of nine games.

"When you leave a club, you do not wash dirty clothes, you do not seek to, at least publicly, do any kind of criticism, it's an ended chapter and that's how I always did it".

He is now a pundit with BeIN Sports.
