Manchester United Jose Mourinho

Report: PSG president officially approached Mourinho, who is still waiting for United job

Latest reports from France indicate PSG have approached Mourinho with a view to taking over at the end of the current season. Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the PSG president, is thought to have contacted Mourinho as he seeks to establish PSG as a dominant force in Europe. He spoke to Jorge Mendes, Mourinho’s agents, immediately after getting dumped out of Europe by Manchester City.

Sky Sports reckon that Mourinho wants to wait until the end of the year before committing to a team, although PSG could be an interesting choice for the serial winner.

PSG have tried to recruit Jose before and he does have a relationship with the PSG president. Al-Khelaifi is extremely disappointed to have been kicked out of the Champions League and Jose’s record is certainly appealing.

Laurent Blanc, the current PSG manager signed a new contract in February, but the manner of the defeat to Manchester City was declared such a fiasco by French media outlet, L’Equipe, that the former French defender has fallen out of favor in Paris.

Manchester United may now be forced to step up their pursuit of Mourinho and attempt to replace Louis Van Gaal quicker than previously thought.

Mourinho has denied that any agreements are in place for him to take over anywhere: “I am always linked with jobs and in the summer I will have a job, but in this moment I can promise you I do not have a contract with any club.”
