Man United to announce Jose Mourinho appointment next week – report
Manchester United are set to announce Jose Mourinho as the club's new manager next week, say reports
Manchester United have agreed a deal with Jose Mourinho for the Portuguese coach to be the club’s next manager and will announce the appointment early next week, according to reports.
Mourinho has been hotly tipped as the leading candidate to take over from Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford this summer.
Van Gaal steered United to their first trophy since 2013 on Saturday as the Red Devils beat Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final.
However, BBC Sport is now reporting that Mourinho is in line to take over at United this summer, with the Red Devils having agreed a deal in principle with the former Chelsea boss before Saturday’s game.
The same report says that the United board feel that it is time for a change after the Red Devils missed out on a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.
Mourinho’s future has been a relentless source of speculation ever since he was sacked by Chelsea back in December.
