- Mourinho is a likely replacement for Guus Hiddink
- He brings on a wealth of experience to make for the gap left by Sir Alex Ferguson
- Van Gaal has not achieved good results at Manchester United
Jose Mourinho has held talks with Manchester United about becoming the club’s next manager, it was reported on Friday.
BBC Sport claimed on Friday that Jose Mourinho has been in discussions with Manchester United about taking over from current boss Louis van Gaal.
Van Gaal and his team have not been impressive as the huge United followers would want them to be this season and the team has been booed of in recent times until they won impressively over, Stoke City.
No agreement has been reached, and the club has made no comment, but negotiations have begun according to the report, which suggests that the Dutchman is likely to leave the team at the end of the season.
Much is not heard from Mourinho who was sacked at Chelsea earlier in the football season, but he is said to be “excited” at the possibility of joining the Reds.
The Portuguese’ appointment would be a remarkable one for Manchester United, who have been struggling to recapture their old glory days since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
Mourinho who has won the won the Champions League twice, as well as eight league titles during his professional career as a manager would fit the bill.
