Jose Mourinho has agreed personal terms with Manchester United to become their new manager.
We covered reports from The Mirror on Tuesday evening which alluded to Mourinho agreeing terms and Sky Sports has now backed up those claims.

A Portuguese newspaper says Mourinho has gone as far as to say he has already signed a three year deal but Sky Sports and The Mirror both suggest complicated image rights with regards to pre-existing sponsors, both of Mourinho and United, are causing a slight delay in the process.
It’s the anticipation which is making it drag out for fans but having been linked with Mourinho ever since he was sacked as Chelsea manager, I suppose we can wait a day or two more, right?
Right now, it is just a matter of time before Mourinho’s move to United is signed, sealed and delivered. Not sure I ever saw myself saying that but how times have changed since Sir Alex retired.
I suppose it’s a little bit ironic that the only hurdle in the way of Mourinho’s move to United right now is to do with sponsors. Maybe we can sign a new sponsor to make sure that doesn’t happen again?
