Reports across Europe also suggest the relationship between Mourinho and Ed Woodward has broken down.
"Paul has to answer by his words".

Mourinho and Manchester United endured an unexpected defeat against Brighton.
One of the numerous confusions going on at Old Trafford is about France worldwide and Manchester United Forward, Anthony Martial.
"If you want to have an explanation about Paul's words, you should go and ask him".
Martial, who is at risk of being dropped by Mourinho for the visit of Tottenham tomorrow, is understood to have been encouraged by the club's stance, despite originally asking to leave Old Trafford in June.
How much they are willing to spend on Alderweireld remains to be seen, but this does seem to be a vote of confidence for the United boss after a tricky summer and start to the new season.
"I think difficult, difficult is after the match you lose, is always difficult, especially for people that really care about the job, about being football professional, but after that you think about the next match", he said.

Mourinho was asked about those comments but said it was Pogba's place to explain what he meant.
Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has reportedly been offered a surprise escape route from Old Trafford with one week remaining in the European transfer window.
Alexis Sanchez, Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia could all return for United after recovering from injuries.
"Decisions to be made on Sunday but yes, they are training with the team".
