Manchester United fans have assembled in their masses inside the Transfer Tavern today, for the crucial derby against Manchester City, and the biggest discussion before kick-off orientated around some tasty gossip.
Spanish outlet El Pais have given the United fans the news they’re desperate to hear, as it’s stated the club has agreed a pre-contract with Jose Mourinho to see the former Chelsea boss replace Louis Van Gaal in the summer.
Van Gaal has been under intense pressure since mid-December, when the Red Devils crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage, and Mourinho has always been the favourite to take charge at Old Trafford.
However, many expected a deal to have been completed by now, or at least confirmed, but the fans are still awaiting the official line that states Van Gaal’s time in Manchester will be up at the end of the season.
This news is good for United though, as it seemingly rules out a move elsewhere for Mourinho amid speculation Real Madrid want to bring him back to Spain.
United fans, would it be better to appoint Mourinho for the end of the season or wait? Let us know in the comments below!
