Ex Chelsea manager José Mourinho is “close” to Manchester United deal.

According to reports coming from England and Italy, the Portuguese coach is negotiating the last details for his contract with the Red Devils.

Mourinho would substitute current Man United manager Louis Van Gaal at the end of this season:

The Dutch manager has another year to run on his contract after this season and it is understood that the Red Devils would like him to see out his deal.

Much will depend on whether United’s form improves between now and the end of the season: failing to qualify for the next Champions League would put huge pressure on him, but the deal with Mourinho can be done anyway since there is the will both from the club and José to work together.
