Manager's move to Manchester United is a 'done deal'
Jose Mourinho has told friends he will be the manager of Manchester United next season
The former FC Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss was sacked by Premier League Champions Chelsea which ended his second stint at the club last December.
The Portugal international has been linked with a move to Manchester United since his departure from Stamford Bridge. His competition for the role at Old Trafford, Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has officially been announced to take over Manchester City next season.
Jose Mourinho is reported to have told associates his role as Manchester United boss next season is a ‘done deal’ as the club seek to find a perfect replacement since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.
Louis van Gaal has come under fire this season for Manchester United’s performances. The appointment of Jose Mourinho will mean the Dutch international will end his three-year contract at Old Trafford after two years of managing the club.
Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford could also take the Manchester United rivalry to another level as his time against Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona during his time at Real Madrid was a global spectacle.
