Boost for Man United as managerial favourite will reject approach from European giant

jose mourinhojose mourinho00Manchester United fans gathering in the Transfer Tavern to bring in the weekend are pleased to hear that they remain the favourites for the boss they’re desperate to replace Louis Van Gaal.

The Daily Star reports that Jose Mourinho, who has been out of a job since being axed by Chelsea in December, will reject an approach from Paris Saint-Germain.

Speculation linking Mourinho to PSG has been rife this week after Manchester City dumped the French champions out of the Champions League, which has increased the pressure upon manager Laurent Blanc.

PSG have dominated French football since their Arab takeover but have so far failed to prove themselves on the continent, with another quarter-final exit not deemed good enough for a side with such a strong squad and finances.

Therefore, Blanc could be booted out this summer but it won’t be Mourinho who replaces him in the French capital, as it’s reported he’s been given assurances about his appointment at Manchester United this summer.

Until an official confirmation is made about Mourinho’s future, speculation will continue to mount and United fans will just have to be patient.

Is Mourinho the right choice for Manchester United, or should he take the PSG job? Let us know in the comments below!
