Gianluca di Marzio has also confirmed Jose Mourinho‘s representatives have met Manchester United for talks this week.

Both the BBC and Manchester Evening News reported on Friday night that negotiations were now underway which caused a ripple of excitement among Man United fans.

Now, following Di Marzio’s comments, we can firmly believe these reports about a meeting between Mourinho and United.

Di Marzio’s got an excellent reputation among United fans – take his early reporting on Matteo Darmian to Old Trafford during the summer – and alongside the BBC, it’s as good as transfer information gets.

Louis van Gaal may have steered United to two consecutive wins but it doesn’t gloss over the cracks which have appeared this season. We’re now fully aware that we aren’t going to go much further ahead under the Dutchman and focus has switched to who we could play under after him – step forward Mourinho.

Interestingly enough, United are not denying the Mourinho rumours in the swift fashion they did with Pep Guardiola during the week. Take of that what you will.
