Mourinho is close to becoming United manager.

Jose Mourinho agrees to personal terms and three-year contract at Manchester United

Published 4 Comments

Jose Mourinho has taken a big step towards becoming Manchester United manager.

The Portuguese is firm favourite to take over in the coming days after Louis van Gaal was sacked by the club.

And now, following plenty of discussions with United, reports suggest Mourinho has agreed to personal terms and a three-year contract.

This is according to the Mirror, who also claim minor details are left to be finalised before the Red Devils can make the announcement.

It was widely expected that Mourinho's arrival would be confirmed today - or perhaps tomorrow - after Van Gaal was told his fate on Monday, but it now seems United fans will have to wait until Thursday at the earliest.

And what a moment in the club's history this could be. For three years now United have craved a capable successor to Sir Alex Ferguson and it now seems they have found their man.

Indeed, big changes are on the horizon. Mourinho's winning pedigree is largely unmatched in European football and it's without doubt that he will tear apart the Red Devils' squad and bring in the quality needed to challenge for the Premier League title.

The same report also suggests Mourinho has spoken to United's executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, and told him to sign a new centre-back, central midfielder and striker.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Karim Benzema have both been linked with moves, but the former appears most likely to arrive when his Paris Saint-Germain contract expires this summer.
