Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern this afternoon have assembled in their masses to discuss the latest gossip, which suggests their managerial search has come to and end.
Van Gaal seems highly-likely to depart from United prematurely before his contract comes to a close in 2017, with the Red Devils enduring a poor season, and Mourinho has been the bookies favourite ever since his dismissal from Chelsea in December.
With Pep Guardiola’s appointment across the city at United’s great rivals, United are under pressure to appoint Mourinho or another top-class manager that can compete with the current Bayern Munich boss.
Our landlord is concerned though, stating United need a massive overhaul and Mourino is far from the ideal candidate to oversee that transition, pointing out that he couldn’t do what was required with a Chelsea side that had similar problems.
United fans, do you want Mourinho? Let us know in the comments below!
