Jose Mourinho is convinced that he is going to replace Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, with the Portuguese tactician having already agreed a three-year deal worth £15 million-per-season with the club, according to the Daily Mirror.
The former Chelsea boss is expected to be confirmed as Manchester United’s new manager at the end of the season, replacing Louis van Gaal.
And according to the Daily Mail, Mourinho has already began planning his squad for the next season, and Jose’s first transfer decision at Manchester United will be to sell the midfield duo of Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini.
The report claims that Mourinho has already met with executive vice-chairman Woodward to speak about the squad proposals, and has asked United chief to sell the two players signed by David Moyes before his arrival.
Fellaini joined the Red Devils in 2013, but has failed to make an impression since his £27m move from Everton, whilst the Spaniard was previously sold by Jose Mourinho himself, during their brief time together at Chelsea.
Mourinho will also be given a sizeable amount of money to make the necessary adjustments to the squad, so as to make them capable of competing for the Premier League title next season.
The Sun has also reported that there is a growing concern about a major squad overhaul, and assistant manager Ryan Giggs’ position, should the former Chelsea boss replace the Dutchman.
