According to reports circling the Spanish press, Jose Mourinho has signed a contract to join Manchester United this summer. The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss has been linked to the club ever since his departure from Stamford Bridge. United have been enduring a dismal season under the leadership of Louis van Gaal, who will stay on until the end of the season.
El Confidencial, the popular Spanish gossip publication, claims that Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes has secured his client a historic deal to join the club.
The paper cites its sources from Portugal and says it is “certain” Mourinho will indeed replace van Gaal once the season concludes.
This would leave one of the most exciting lineups in managerial history as Manchester City have appointed Mourinho’s arch-enemy, Pep Guardiola.
