Manchester United looking to announce Jose Mourinho as next manager in coming days?

Top brass at the Old Trafford are looking at the possibilities of having Jose Mourinho as the Manchester United manager over the coming days.

There have been reports of talks between Mourinho’s advisers together with Manchester United officials in order to fast track the Portuguese taking over the team from the under fire Louis van Gaal.

However, Mourinho has made clear that he wants to step in the team next season and not during the ongoing season.

In a statement he made via La Stampa, Mourinho stated that he has every respect for every coach and is still uncertain as to which club he will handle in the future.

“My next club? I really do not know. I just know that I love football and I will be back with the same passion and ambition as ever. Right now I have all the respect for every coach and every club. I’m not looking for a club, the clubs are looking for me,” Mourinho said.

Even Inter Milan’s big boss has confirmed that Mourinho is set to manage the Old Trafford-base squad. Maurinho was a guess at Inter Milan when the team faced Sampordia and dismiss speculation that he will replace current Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini.

However, United insiders are looking at another possibility of having former midfielder and team captain Ryan Giggs as a favorite to succeed the beleaguered Dutchman, who will again be put to the test when they face Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Feb. 22 and will be followed with their match against Arsenal on Feb. 28.

Giggs has been the team’s assistant manager since 2014 and was promised of calling the shots for the Red Devils in a hope to unify its players and to calm down the emotions of the fans, who have been wanting for the team to sack Louis van Gaal for his dismal efforts.

Despite of the outcome, one thing is for sure, Manchester United needs reforms and needs it fast if it hopes to salvage its past glory even being at par at to what Sir Alex Ferguson accomplished before retiring three years ago.
