Reports suggest Mourinho is ‘convinced’ he will land the Old Trafford job and has already described the transfer to close friends as a done deal.
Mauricio Pochettino’s name has also been thrown into the mix but Di Marzio has insisted Mourinho to United is already done.
@himoznona i just told few days ago, i know he'll be the next manager

For those who don’t know Di Marzio, he is an extremely reliable Italian journalist who has his finger on the pulse when it comes to transfer news. From breaking the Matteo Darmian to Man United story in the summer to multiple other rumours, Di Marzio has been an excellent source of news over the last couple of years.
So, it would be a surprise to hear Di Marzio say so boldly that Mourinho is coming to United unless he had strong information. Everything is pointing towards Jose becoming United’s next manager but until there is confirmation of sorts, we’re trying to stay impartial and not get swept up in the media snowball which is gathering pace every single day.
