Ex Chelsea boss José Mourinho expects to become new Manchester United manager within six months, according to an exclusive report of The Sun this morning.
The British paper states:
The Special One has even asked his trusted staff who would be willing to join him.
Louis van Gaal is clinging on as Red Devils’ boss but defeat at Liverpool today would push the Dutchman closer to the brink.
Mourinho is liked by Alex Ferguson and there has been informal contact between the Portuguese coach and United.
Mourinho will be in pole position to take over if LVG is axed.
But there are plenty among the United hierarchy who are desperate for Van Gaal to succeed.
Mourinho hasn’t left England after his sacking for Chelsea and a in a statement released two days after he claimed he was ready to go back to work immediately.
