When CLICKON Soccer broke the news of Jose Mourinho signing a contract with Manchester United, the world laughed. Just 48 hours later, the former Chelsea boss was seen in Manchester with Ed Woodward.
El Confidencial informed us on Wednesday that Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes had inked a deal for his client to join the world’s most famous club. With Woodward and Mourinho spotted together in Manchester on Friday, the rumour is now official according to credible sources.
Woodward will give current manager Louis van Gaal until the end of the season before replacing him with Mourinho. Apparently, the board at United have had their sights on Mourinho ever since he was spectacularly fired from Chelsea.
Manchester United will not announce the news anytime soon in order to prevent it disturbing the already fragile mood in the locker room.
