Will Jose Mourinho become manager of Manchester United? According to reports from Sky Italia journalist Alessandro Alciato, a deal is close to being agreed.
We’ve been waiting for reports like this to emerge because of how up in the air Louis van Gaal‘s future is at the moment, and especially after Pep Guardiola was confirmed as manchester City manager next season.
Whether or not you like Mourinho, Man United are left with very few other options to replace van Gaal and Alciato clearly has some information which indicates Jose is close to calling Old Trafford home.
@SkySport Mourinho-Manchester United: accordo vicinissimo. Che derby con il City di Guardiola!

As always, the excellent Sport Witness have had their say on the rumours as usual, so you can take a look here. Interestingly, Alciato met with Jorge Mendes last month – make of that what you will.
Of course, these rumours are not definitive but expect them to grow in intensity now that Pep’s future has been resolved. Jose has always wanted the United job, will he finally get it?
