Manchester City have reacted angrily to reports in the UK press that they have approached Jose Mourinho to become their new manager.
It was reported in The Sun newspaper that the current Inter Milan coach had been made an offer to replace Mark Hughes at the club.
However, City say the article has no base in fact and look as if they may be considering court action. The club released a statement which said:
Following the publication of an article in today’s Sun newspaper by Ian McGarry which states that Jose Mourinho has rejected a £12.5million offer to manage Manchester City Football Club, the Club would like to clarify the following.
The article is completely without foundation and the Club is considering legal action to address the matter.
