The Portuguese coach has been linked with Barcelona as recently as this week, and has admitted he has already had offers since being sacked as Tottenham manager.

The former Porto and Chelsea boss confirmed to Marca that he was interested in working in 'other leagues' after succeeding in Portugal before his difficult spell in England.

"Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of the best teams in the world. I am a young coach and it would be a dream to train either Madrid or Barcelona," he told the paper.

"I would like to get to know other leagues and I have had offers from various teams. From around next June I am sure I will be managing again."

Villas-Boas also said he was pleased to see Gareth Bale doing so well at Real Madrid, after having worked with the Welsh superstar at Tottenham.

"Gareth Bale is having a really good season. He knows he is facing one of the biggest challenges of his career.

"Signing for Madrid was his decision because he had lots of offers. Bale wanted to sign for the team with the most titles. He always wanted to go to Madrid."
