Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleased to finally see some progress in a saga that’s dragged on all season, with an announcement reported to be incoming soon.
Mourinho has been favourite to replace under-par Van Gaal ever since his sacking from Chelsea in December and the need for a managerial shake-up intensified after Manchester City announced a sensational deal to bring Pep Guardiola to the Etihad Stadium this summer.
Manchester United wanted to wait until the end of the season to confirm Mourinho’s appointment but their hand has been forced after a press leak in Portugal yesterday.
Whilst fans in the bar believe this news will ultimately give their side a drastic improvement, our landlord has fired a warning as he feels Mourinho’s poor transfer record could cause problems.
United fans, can Mourinho get you back to the top? Let us know in the comments below!
