Jose Mourinho close to agreeing personal terms with Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is close to agreeing personal terms with Manchester United and could be officially announced as our new manager within 48 hours, report Sky Sports.

Man United are expected to move quickly following the sacking of Louis van Gaal on Monday and his agent Jorge Mendes certainly knows how to get a deal pushed over the line. By the sounds of it, that deal is nearly finalised already.

Mourinho was pictured leaving his house this morning by the press who had all been waiting outside for a glimpse of him like some hungry paparazzi stalking an A-list celebrity but that’s the sort of attention Jose has always garnered and always will, especially now he’s about to become United’s manager.

Having had months to plan the Mourinho deal after van Gaal was due to be sacked, it looks like United are pulling their finger out and getting things pushed over the line very quickly which is the smart thing to do. The sooner a deal can be finished the better, especially with Euro 2016 coming up.

If we can have Mourinho in place before Euro 2016 and potentially even a signing or two, it will give us the best possible foundations heading into the pre-season and ultimately should leave us in good shape for next year. Here’s hoping nothing crops up to delay the contract and we’ll see Mourinho smiling at Carrington soon.
