Harry Redknapp has claimed that Manchester United already have a deal in place for Jose Mourinho to take over at Old Trafford in the summer.

Louis van Gaal has faced relentless speculation about his future in recent weeks following his side’s stuttering form.

The Dutchman watched the Red Devils slump to a disappointing 2-1 defeat in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon to further dent their hopes of finishing in the top four.

Mourinho has long been touted as a possible successor for Van Gaal at United following his sacking by Chelsea in December.

Now, former Tottenham and QPR boss Redknapp says that he understands that an official deal is in place for the Portuguese coach to take over from Van Gaal at the end of the season.

Redknapp is quoted as saying by Metro: “It hasn’t worked out at all for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

“It’s been a disaster for him – no doubt about that.

“From the people I know who are in the know, Jose Mourinho to United is a done deal.”
