Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho expects to be back in management within the next month.

Mourinho sensationally left Stamford Bridge in September last year and since that time speculation has been rife as to the Portuguese's next destination.

It has been strongly rumoured that Mourinho could be set to replace Internazionale chief Roberto Mancini, but the ex-Porto boss has always kept his cards close to his chest.

Mourinho, though, expects to begin discussions with clubs across Europe when domestic seasons conclude next week and he then hopes to begin a new job in June.

"There's a week left before the end of leagues. I still don't know where I'll work but I hope to be working in one month," said Mourinho.

"I don't know where, but I'm sure that I will be working."

Mourinho lifted the UEFA Champions League with Porto in 2004 before guiding Chelsea to two Premier League titles and an FA Cup and Carling Cup success.
