Mourinho could be heading to United in a few days according to the latest reports.
The Star notes:
Jose Mourinho will be Manchester United’s next manager – and it could be confirmed by May 23.
That’s the claim of Italian transfer guru Emanuele Giulianelli.
Ex-Chelsea chief Mourinho has been hotly tipped to replace Louis van Gaal this summer.
The Dutchman is under pressure after failing to secure a top four spot this season.
Even a win for United today in the FA Cup final won’t be enough to save van Gaal’s job according to many sources. Most United fans seen unimpressed with the Dutchman and Mourinho would certainly be a popular choice among many Reds.
Whether the United board do sack van Gaal so soon after the cup final- if at all- remains to be seen but if they do decide to part company with him then Mourinho seems like the obvious choice.
A win today in the FA Cup final will at least give the manager the chance to leave United with his head held high.
