Mourinho so confident of landing Man United job he’s already targeted £95m striker

Gonzalo HiguainSheer delight for the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern who haven’t had much of it in recent months, with reports in the Daily Mirror claiming Jose Mourinho is on the verge of joining the club AND has identified Gonzalo Higuain as a top target.

The Portuguese has been strong linked with a move to Old Trafford ever since his sacking from Chelsea back in December, though Tom Hopkinson in the Sunday People claims he is all but certain to land the job.

Not only that, he has targeted the Napoli forward in what would be a reunion for two, having worked together while both at Real Madrid.

The Argentine has been in stunning form this season, scoring 32 times in all competitions and leading the club to a Serie A title challenge.

He’s reported to have a £95m valuation in Italy, though there are suggestions the club will drop such a figure as he enters the final two year of the deal he initially signed in 2013 when he left the Spanish capital.
