Mourinho to Manchester United has been just about the worst kept secret in football. It has felt like an inevitability over the last few months, and now we’re on the cusp of sealing one of the most audacious managerial moves of the summer.
At this point in time, Manchester United need someone like Jose Mourinho to come in and stabilise the club. David Moyes and Louis van Gaal were both failed appointments, so the pressure is also on the shoulders of Edward Woodward who simply has to get this one right.
Looking at Mourinho’s impeccable record, particularly in the Premier League, this is as close to a sure bet as you are going to get in football.
