Market: Jose Mourinho to be next Man Utd manager
Odds: 1/4 @ Betfair
Rumours have suggested ex-Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has begun talks with Manchester United ahead of replacing Louis van Gaal at the helm this season. the club hierarchy are reportedly unhappy with a lack of progress being made in the title race by the Red Devils, as well a group stage exit in the Champions League.
Such disappointment could well cost the job of current manager Van Gaal, and Mourinho is said to be waiting in the wings for his dream job. The Portuguese coach has long wanted to be in charge of United, citing an interest years back, and he’s already publicly stated he won’t take a break from management after his sacking from Chelsea.
Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford would be met with real backing from the supporters, and he’s been on the shortlist for years. Now United finally have the chance to get their man, but that would mean sacking Van Gaal to make it happen. Betfair are giving odds of 1/4 for Jose Mourinho to become the next Manchester United manager.
