Yet again, the pendulum surrounding Jose Mourinho’s potential move to Manchester United this summer has swung, leaving the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern bewildered and bemused.

Just as it looked as if the Portuguese coach was all but certain to be handed the reins at the end of the season, Sky Sports claim French giants Paris Saint-Germain have approached the out of work 53-year old.

Though current PSG boss Laurent Blanc only penned a new two-year deal recently, the Parisians are reportedly firmly in the chase to land the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss.

Following their Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester City, decision makers in the French capital are said to have grown disgruntled at their lack of progress in the competition despite heavy expenditure.

They won four consecutive domestic titles, though have failed to find a way past the quarter-final stages of the continent’s elite competition.

The report claims the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ would prefer to wait until the end of the season before making a decision, though he does view a move to Ligue 1 as a viable option.

He’s reportedly been on their radar twice before and has a long running friendship with the club’s Qatari owners.

Can United really afford to miss out on Jose Mourinho? Is the man to finally lead PSG to Champions League glory?
