Manchester United Discussing Jose Mourinho – Sources

Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho

Kayode Sesan

Manchester United representatives have spoken to Jose Mourinho’s camp about the possibility of becoming the club’s next manager, with current boss Louis van Gaal on the brink of the sack.

United suffered a third consecutive defeat on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Norwich City at home in another insipid display which caused the growing feeling among the hierarchy that it is time to replace Van Gaal.

That would pave the way for Mourinho to get the job he has coveted for years, as reports surface that his representatives approached United within 24 hours of the Portuguese losing his job at Chelsea on Thursday, with that contact continuing over the weekend.

His appointment at Old Trafford is still a long way from certain, however.

Some around United are also maintaining that Van Gaal will be given at least two games to try turn it around, with a fixture against Stoke next up on Boxing Day, but the conflicting accounts offered by those inside the club reflect the uncertainty of the current situation.
