Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is being linked with a return to Portugal.
Record says Benfica have identified Mourinho as their next manager following the sacking of Rui Vitoria.
The Primeira Liga giants parted ways with the 48-year-old on Thursday, ending his three-and-a-half year spell at the club.
Mourinho was sacked as United manager in December and it was reported then that Benfica had been keeping tabs on him.
The 55-year-old began his managerial career at the club and led the side to six wins from 11 games. He only lasted three months at Benfica after a breakdown in contract discussions with a newly elected club president.
