According to the Guardian, Manchester United were reluctantly discussing a compensation package for Carlos Queiroz last night.
Sir Alex FergusonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s assistant confirmed that he wanted to leave the club to take over as Portugal’s national manager.
A dismayed Ferguson had not given up hope of persuading him to change his mind but there is now a general acceptance at Old Trafford that they are about to lose the services of a man Cristiano Ronaldo has described as being Ã¢â‚¬Å“like a fatherÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Queiroz, who coached Portugal between 1991 and 1993, has provisionally agreed a Ã‚Â£1.1 million deal, similar to his salary at Old Trafford, and has got his way after asking for a four-year contract, having initially been offered a package only until the World Cup in 2010.
