Published 2 Comments

In the last couple of weeks, there have been endless rumours surrounding Jose Mourinho and the Manchester United job.

But a video has just been published that appears to officially confirm that the Portuguese boss will be taking over at Old Trafford.

Inter director, and close friend to Mourinho, Bedy Moratti is filmed leaving a restaurant in Milan where she had just had lunch with the former Chelsea manager.

The crowd of Italian reporters were desperate to find out whether the recent rumours linking Mourinho to a return to Inter were true and asked Moratti if she wanted to see him return.

“Of course, he’s always fantastic and we missed him as a person here," she told the reporters.

So will he be returning to the San Siro? they asked.

“No, no he’s happy now,” Moratti replied.

Just as it seemed that the reporters wouldn’t be given any interesting information, Moratti told the world what is about to happen concerning Mourinho.

“He’s going to Manchester,” she revealed.

Moratti is obviously speaking in Italian in the above video but social media is going crazy after it was translated by many media outlets.

Mourinho has been out of work since getting the sack from Chelsea in December.

Pretty much everyday since then it seems, there have been rumours flying around that Mourinho is about to replace Louis van Gaal at the Theatre of Dreams.

These rumours have been largely unconfirmed by anyone of real importance but this comment from Moratti is a massive hint that a deal is in place for Mourinho to return to the Premier League.

It’s unconfirmed whether his imminent arrival will be immediately or at the end of the season but after this video has emerged, it’s likely we will be finding out very soon.
