SINGAPORE - Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is in town, and he has answered the "million-dollar question" about his widely rumoured move to Manchester United.

Well, sort of.

"I read so many things, one day says yes, another day says no, one other day says I go to China, another day I go to Italy...(now that) I'm here, probably you are saying that I go to Singapore national team," media reports quoted him as saying.

"It's a million-dollar question that nobody knows. I'm not worried about it. I'm relaxed, wait and see what happens."

He was speaking to reporters at NorthLight School, where he attended an event with Singaporean billionaire and Valencia owner Peter Lim this afternoon (Feb 24).

The 56-year-old, who has been jobless since getting the sack at Stamford Bridge in December, hinted that he would most likely only join a new club next season.

"I always feel that it's better to wait, not to rush, better to be calm, to wait for the right moment, the right move. I feel that starting the next season with a new club and project is probably the best thing for me," he said.

The Portuguese has been linked to United amid the club's unsatisfactory form this season.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to Denmark's Midtjylland in the Europa League last Friday (Feb 19), but managed to beat League One club Shrewsbury Town 3-0 on Tuesday (Feb 23) to secure a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
