It looks set to be yet another summer of change at Manchester United with the appointment of Jose Mourinho seemingly imminent.
Louis van Gaal, who secured the Red Devils their first major trophy in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era by winning the FA Cup on Saturday, looks set to be axed by the club's hierarchy after failing to claim Champions League football for next season.
Ultimately, then, it's Mourinho who looks set to replace him in the Old Trafford dugout. The Portuguese tactician has been out of work following his dismissal at Chelsea back in December, but it's safe to say that he will return to the English game with a point to prove.

One thing is for sure, he will be determined to put together his own team at the Theatre of Dreams.
Which players will he axe ahead of the 2016/17 campaign? Here are three potential departures...

You just have to feel sorry for Juan Mata. It was Mourinho, of course, who all but ended his Chelsea career and the same man could do exactly the same to him at Manchester United.
The Spaniard may well have scored a crucial goal for the Red Devils in the FA Cup on Saturday, but that alone may not keep him at the Theatre of Dreams.
It's clear for all to see that the technically gifted star is not a Mourinho-type player, so there's every chance that he will move on once again this summer. United fans have duly taken to Mata over the last couple of years, but that's unlikely to stop a ruthless Mourinho taking action.
In all honesty, full-back Marcos Rojo just hasn't been able to settle at Old Trafford. The Argentine international, who had to come off with an injury during Saturday's FA Cup final, has endured a tricky campaign at the club.
It's unlikely that Mourinho would be willing to take a chance on Rojo, who has failed to produce the goods at United. Consistency is key for Mourinho and the United defender just hasn't hit the required level.
It was well documented that the Red Devils had one of the best defensive records in the Premier League this past season, but it's likely that Mourinho will want to mix things up ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.
Michael Carrick has enjoyed a remarkable career at Old Trafford, but it may finally be time for him to move on.
The 34-year-old is still arguably the club's most consistent midfielder - he enjoyed a steady game at Wembley on Saturday - but surely Mourinho will want to freshen things up in the middle of the park.
United are in need of a new commander and, with Carrick's contract set to run out imminently, he may be the man to be replaced. After helping his beloved club win the FA Cup, he has won near enough everything in Manchester and now could be the ideal time to move on.
