first_img1 Jose Mourinho Jose Mourinho is convinced he will be the next Manchester United manager, according to widespread reports.The former Chelsea boss is being heavily linked with the job at Old Trafford, with Louis van Gaal under severe pressure.It was revealed last week that United had already held talks with Mourinho’s representatives as they plan for Van Gaal’s possible departure.Now, according to Wednesday’s national newspapers, the 53-year-old has informed friends that it is a ‘done deal’ he will take charge of United.The Daily Telegraph quotes a well-placed source, saying: “Mourinho’s going to Manchester United. It’s a done deal. Chelsea is the only big job up for grabs.”Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in December, just months after leading the club to the Premier League title.He is desperate to remain in England and has long coveted the United job.Should the Portuguese take charge at Old Trafford, it would reignite his bitter rivalry with Pep Guardiola, who will take over at Manchester City in the summer.last_img
