The world No 8 split with his previous coach Ivan Lendl in March after a successful two-year partnership which included his success at Wimbledon last year.
McEnroe also has a number of other commitments away from the ATP Tour circuit, but this week the American indicated he would be interested in working with the Scot.
Murray said: "I speak to him a lot around tournaments. I have always got on well with him and he has always said nice things to me and about me.
"He obviously has a lot to offer. It is interesting - whether anything comes from it, who knows?
"Obviously when someone like that shows an interest, you have to take that into consideration because he is a great tennis player.
"He loves the game, is very passionate about it and was extremely competitive as well.
"When you are very competitive as a player, you are likely to be so as a coach as well and that is also of benefit."
Murray had hoped to have a new coach in place by the French Open, which begins on May 25, but accepts that timescale may be delayed by another month.
"I might have to wait a bit," added the Scot. "It also depends in the next couple of weeks because, if I do well, I'm not going to have that much time, while if I don't do well I'll have more time to chat to people.
"I would still hope definitely before Wimbledon, but I would like someone before the French Open."
