Jamie Redknapp believes Jose Mourinho is edging closer to the end of his Manchester United career.

The Red Devils have failed to win the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson stood down as manager at Manchester United at the end of the 2012-13 season.

Mourinho won the Europa League and the League Cup in their first season under the Portuguese head coach after the former Chelsea FC boss replaced Louis van Gaal.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but the Red Devils ended up 19 points adrift of defending champions Manchester City.

The Red Devils signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant in the 2018 summer transfer window.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho failed to strengthen at centre-half or on the right wing at Old Trafford despite being linked with a host of players in the summer.

Former Liverpool FC captain Redknapp believes Manchester United boss Mourinho is nearing the end of his time at Old Trafford following a difficult start to the season.

“Mourinho has a shelf-life,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“When he comes into a club, in terms of achieving an immediate impact, he’s the best.

“Modern managers are about coming in for two, three years, make an impact and get out – and he’s the man for that.

“He’s incredible at that, and you can’t take that away from him.

|But once that shelf-life goes, his position becomes very difficult. He goes public in his criticism of players and, with people like Paul Pogba, I just can’t see how those situations can be repaired.”

Manchester United have failed to win the Premier League title under their last three managers David Moyes, Van Gaal and Mourinho.
