Manchester United are certainly considering firing Louis van Gaal at some point in the not too distant future, after another dire result and performance; this time at home to Southampton. The media are linking a whole host of top class managers to Old Trafford, but one seemingly wants it more than most.
According to the Daily Mail, Jose Mourinho is desperate for the Manchester United managerial role, and his agent and ‘friend of the club’, Jorge Mendes, is in regular contact with Edward Woodward about the move.
The Mail go on to say that Jose Mourinho firmly believes he can deliver the title at Manchester United in the 2016/17 season, which is certainly a bold statement if you judge how poor our squad looks overall.
At the end of the day, it has always felt like Mourinho would take over as Manchester United boss at some point in his career, and at this moment, he certainly seems like the leading candidate if Louis van Gaal gets the boot.
