Jose Mourinho ‘agrees to take over at Manchester United’
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly signed an agreement to take over as Manchester United manager.
Mourinho has been linked with the Old Trafford post ever since his exit from Chelsea in December, with incumbent boss Louis van Gaal’s future still uncertain.
Manchester City’s announcement that Pep Guardiola will be their new manager at the end of the season has piled further pressure on United to respond with a statement of their own.
Spanish newspaper El Confidencial now reports that Mourinho has already agreed to take over the reins at the 20-time champions of England when Van Gaal leaves the club.
The report goes on to state that Mourinho would take over during the season should Van Gaal be sacked, or in June if United keep faith with the Dutchman until the end of the current campaign.
Should that be the case then it would see Mourinho and Guardiola come up against each other once again following a feisty relationship in La Liga during their times in charge of Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
