Backpages: Jose Mourinho to Manchester United is a done deal

by Sam Peoples

Will Jose Mourinho be Manchester United’s next manager? Tomorrow’s back-pages certainly seem to think so.

The Daily Mail, The Mirror, Daily Star and also The Telegraph have all reported the same story that Mourinho believes him becoming Man United manager is a done deal for the summer.

This is the sort of press briefing that is very hard to ignore. With so many journalists reporting it at the same time, it’s hard to say it is simply some made up guff in the press.

Louis van Gaal has continued to insist the Mourinho to United stories are invented by the media but this would be one hell of a collective effort from the press if there is no truth in these rumours at all.

After years of wanting the job, is Mourinho finally about to sit in the hot seat at Old Trafford?
