Manchester United fans could have just received the news they have been waiting for. Sky Sports news have said that Manchester United have told Jose Mourinho the job is his if Louis van Gaal leaves this summer.
The Dutchman hasn’t had the best of seasons at Manchester United, and that has cast massive doubt about his long-term future at Old Trafford.

This certainly feels like the beginning of the end for Louis van Gaal. Why on earth would United leak this information unless they were dead set on sacking the Dutchman.
I still don’t expect anything to happen until after the FA Cup final this coming Saturday, but I reckon things will begin to move fast from that point forward.
Its now up to the Dutchman to deliver the FA Cup trophy against Crystal Palace to give himself any kind of chance to still be in the job beyond this summer.
