While the mood of the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern has taken a significant upturn following last night’s win over West Ham, the pro-Jose Mourinho camp keeping us busy behind the bar tonight have become slightly nervy.
It’s no secret that the 53-year old has been widely linked with the managerial post at Old Trafford, though reports in the Daily Mail suggest Paris Saint-Germain could emerge as a viable alternative for the controversial Portuguese.
It is claimed that the Ligue 1 champions are weighing up a move for the former Inter Milan coach following their elimination from the Champions League in the quarter-final stage at the hands of Manchester City.
Current boss Laurent Blanc only penned a new two-year deal in the French capital back in February, though has come under fire in Paris as a result of Tuesday’s loss at the Etihad.
The Parisians are one of the richest clubs in the world, and while the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is said to have previously frowned upon French football, the club are able to offer him £15m a year in wages.
A return to Real Madrid has also been mooted, though Los Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane led the Spanish giants into the semi-finals of Europe’s elite continental competition, somewhat alleviating the pressure for now.
Can you really see Mourinho NOT going to Manchester United after all of this?
