Speaking about his future this week, Mourinho admitted that a former player has asked him to join his club – sparking suggestions he could have been speaking to Cristiano Ronaldo about becoming the Juve manager.
There were reports on Monday that Ronaldo had asked his former manager, who was in charge of him at Real Madrid , to move to the Allianz Stadium this summer.
Speaking to BeIN Sports, Mourinho said: ‘One of the players that I have a great relation with him, he plays for a team and he told me, “You should come here next season” and I told him, “They don’t love me”.
‘He told me, “You win three matches and they will start loving you”.
‘This is just… we are professionals and we have respect for each other, even when we have bad reactions on the pitch, in the press conference, a player be more aggressive with another one.
‘It’s people from the same industry and in the end people respect each other.’

Mourinho has been out of work since he was sacked as Manchester United manager last December. But he has a track record of success in Italy, steering Inter Milan to the Treble in 2010.
That may count against him in any attempt to become Juventus manager, due to the rivalry between the two clubs and the fact Mourinho has previously stoked the flames.
In November last year, he cupped his ear to the fans at Juventus’ ground after United beat them in the Champions League group stage.
Mourinho was in charge for Ronaldo’s best ever league season, helping him score 46 goals in the 2011-12 campaign at Real Madrid.
