Manchester United could be just ‘hours’ away from announcing one of the biggest managerial dealings ever. According to Sky Sports Italy, Jose Mourinho is ‘just a matter of hours’ away from putting pen to paper on a contract at Old Trafford.
This would be massive for everyone involved with Manchester United Football Club, and it would certainly be a statement of intent from the board, who are clearly keen to get this deal wrapped up sooner rather than later.
The self-proclaimed Special One has been out of work since leaving Chelsea before the turn of the year, and has been constantly linked with replacing Van Gaal. Now it looks set to become a reality.
Mourinho is a born winner, and he knows how to do it in England – thats for sure. There has to be some concern about the state in which he leaves clubs once he is done though.
It would be a bit cruel on Louis van Gaal to announce this deal before the season has finished, as lets not forget we still have an FA Cup final to look forward to in just eight days time.
