Jose Mourinho has revealed he will be joining his new club in July in an interview with BT Sport’s Matt Smith.

The former Chelsea manager is widely considered the favourite to replace Louis van Gaal at Manchester United this summer following a poor year under the Dutchman at Old Trafford.

Speaking in Singapore last month, Mourinho was coy on his future but he’s now confirmed that he’ll be back in management in only a few months time.

Will it be Man United? I would be extremely surprised if it wasn’t, if only for the complete lack of alternative options. Bayern Munich and Manchester City both have their managerial situations sorted and Mourinho has said he wants to join a new club which rules out Inter Milan, Chelsea, Real Madrid and FC Porto.

Everything continues to point towards United but without anything actually being confirmed. That being said, Mourinho confirming he’ll join a new club in July does reveal that he’s been having plenty of talks behind the scenes already…
