Following the crushing 3-0 loss away at Tottenham yesterday, the Manchester United fans cowered in one of the corners of the Transfer Tavern drowning their sorrows have a vague sense of optimism to cling on to following reports from ESPN that Jose Mourinho remains confident of landing the Old Trafford job this summer.
Despite the former Chelsea manager recently insisting he has not agreed a deal with any club as of yet, there has been rampant speculation as to the whereabouts of his next landing spot.
While a move back to former charges Real Madrid has been mooted, him taking over from Louis van Gaal at the Theatre of Dreams at the end of the season is the outcome that has been most strong linked for a number of months.
Though there had been recent suggestions that current Red Devils boss, the ever beleaguered Louis van Gaal, was confident in remaining in the role – ESPN claim the 53-year old is confident of being handed the reins.
The devastating loss in North London yesterday all but ended any hopes the once proud titans of English football had of qualifying for the Champions League.
They state that the fact the Dutchman still remains in the role and no deal has been agreed with the ex-Inter Milan coach as of yet is more to do with the internal politics at Old Trafford rather than any initiative to have him kept on.
This seems like it’ll be a drawn out saga, but will you be happy with it Manchester United fans, should it finally happen?
