Report: Mourinho set to replace LVG

Manchester United will reportedly announce Jose Mourinho as their next manager after the FA Cup final on Saturday.

According to AS, the former Chelsea boss will replace the oft-criticized Louis Van Gaal regardless of the Red Devils’ result against Crystal Palace.

Mourinho was linked with the job straight after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013 but opted instead to rejoin Chelsea where he won the Premier league title in his second season.

However, things quickly turned sour for the former Real Madrid boss and after losing nine out of sixteen league games, he parted ways with the club by ‘mutual consent’.

Van Gaal’s departure won’t come as a shock to many of the Red Devils faithful as large sections of the home support have been chanting Mourinho’s name since he was first linked with the club earlier this year.

A three-year deal has been agreed and the ‘Special One’ will earn around £11.6million in the Old Trafford hotseat, according to reports in the English press.
