Mourinho will lead his Chelsea side out at Old Trafford for the first time since returning as Blues manager for the teams' Premier League fixture on Monday, with the added experience of knocking Manchester United out of the Champions League last season while he was still in charge of Real Madrid.
Prior to that Round of 16 victory, there were encounters with the Red Devils during a term as Inter Milan boss, his first spell at Chelsea and the infamous knee slide that happened during Porto's run to the 2004 Champions League title.
The Portuguese reflected on his numerous match-ups against United and told The Daily Mail that he cherished all of them.
"I lost, I won, I drew. I knocked them out of the Champions League, I was knocked out in the Champions League," Mourinho pointed out.
"I have everything against them. Maybe I won more than lost. Maybe. But playing Man United - I always say the same - gives me pleasure. I like it. Last year we were playing them, in the Champions League knockout stages and everyone in Madrid was with some tension."
Four days after the game against David Moyes' side, Mourinho will face a familiar foe in Pep Guardiola when Chelsea play Bayern Munich, the Spaniard's new team, in the European Super Cup.
However, Mourinho believed Bayern were a much bigger threat under former boss Jupp Heynckes.
"It was Jupp Heynckes's Bayern that was the best team in Europe," he stated to Bild am Sonntag.
"Now they have a new coach and new players - and I'm not sure if they are still as good."
