Ever since parting ways with Chelsea, Jose Mourinho has been heavily linked with Manchester United. The news about Pep Guardiola taking charge of Manchester City after season’s end has led to speculations that United will announce a similar deal for Mourinho.

Van Gaal, who has been under scrutiny and has failed to win the votes of the fans, is mostly likely to depart from Old Trafford. His philosophy and managerial tactics have been questioned, and the board is also said to be rethinking their stance on the manager.

According to Daily Mail, Mourinho is close to becoming Manchester United’s manager. The Portuguese has wanted this job ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. However, David Moyes was chosen as the successor then Mourinho lost his chance.

The ex-Chelsea manager now has the chance again to become United manager and it is highly unlikely that he will turn down the offer.

Although no deal has been signed yet, the two time champions league winner, is most likely to get the job after season’s end.

The 53-year-old has had offers from Real Madrid and clubs from China, but he is eager to return to the Premier League.

Reports suggests that Mourinho isn’t ready to take the job from Van Gaal mid-season, but would rather wait until the season end to get a fresh start. Latest reports from Spain confirm the news and reveals a set date for Mourinho, he will start managing United from July 1st.
