    Unsurprisingly, there is plenty of talk around his potential movements in the transfer market – including a Tottenham return for Bale.

     

    TOP STORY – MOURINHO EYES BALE, BUT CAN'T SPEND IN JANUARY

    Mourinho's arrival at Tottenham offers Bale the perfect escape route from Real Madrid, according to AS.

    The star attacker left Spurs for Madrid in 2013, but is set to leave the LaLiga giants at season's end, the report says.

    Marca reports Madrid have ruled out a January exit for Bale. That would suit Mourinho, who has been told there is no money to spend in the January window, according to The Guardian.

    ROUND-UP

    - Mourinho has more pressing matters at Spurs. The Mirror reports Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, who are out of contract at season's end, are intrigued by the prospect of working under Mourinho and are open minded about their futures.

    - It could have been different for Spurs. According to the Daily Mail, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers was Tottenham's first choice before they turned to Mourinho.

    - Meanwhile, the sacked Pochettino may not be out of management for too long. Barcelona and Bayern Munich are ready to pounce for the former Spurs manager, according to The Sun. Ernesto Valverde is under pressure at Camp Nou, while interim boss Hansi Flick will coach Bayern until at least the end of the year.

    - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is in no rush to renew his Arsenal contract and with good reason. Sport reports the forward is waiting to find out how serious Barcelona's interest in him is before extending a deal that runs until 2021.

    - Needing a striker, Manchester United are considering a January move for Roma's Edin Dzeko, according to ESPN FC. Dzeko has scored five goals in 12 Serie A games this season, and United are looking to finally bolster their attack after losing Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in the close season.

    - Olivier Giroud has made just one Premier League start for Chelsea this season and the striker could be set for a January exit. La Gazzetta dello Sport says Inter are considering a move for Giroud in January as they look for a back-up for Lukaku.

    Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta wished former manager Jose Mourinho all the best as Tottenham head coach.

    Mourinho was appointed by Spurs on Wednesday, a day after the Premier League club – who are 14th in the table – sacked Mauricio Pochettino.

    The Portuguese tactician led Chelsea to three league titles across two spells at the helm, but will now look to salvage their rivals' season.

    Mourinho may have joined Chelsea's rivals, but Azpilicueta – who won one of his two Premier League titles under the 56-year-old – sent well wishes.

    "I can talk only when Jose was here at Chelsea with us," he told Sky Sports News.

    "We won trophies, and now football moves on. I wish him all the best even though he goes to a rival.

    "I have good memories with him and I have played many times under him and against him.

    "Obviously when we play against each other we both want to win for our teams, but this is football. I wish him well."

    Mourinho's first game in charge of Spurs will come against another London club, West Ham, on Saturday.
