PSG recently contacted Mourinho’s agent, Jorge Mendes, to offer him the chance to replace Laurent Blanc at the French club but the Portuguese has not entered talks with them.
Mourinho is instead said to have ‘guaranteed’ friends that he will replace Louis van Gaal at Man United, with Mendes continuing discussions with Ed Woodward this week.
Van Gaal is preparing his side for the FA Cup semi-final against Everton on Saturday while they are still in the hunt for a top four finish in the Premier League.
However, the Dutchman’s style of play has been turgid, to say the least, and Mourinho is the ‘safest bet’ in terms of getting United back to where they belong.
It may prove to be a huge oversight on United’s part if they do pass up on the chance to bring Mourinho in.
