Manchester United have reportedly already made contact with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. 

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Red Devils spoke to an intermediary about the Portuguese tactician before Saturday's defeat to Norwich City. 

It appears, then, that Mourinho, who was dismissed as Chelsea boss late last week, could return to the dugout sooner rather than later.

The former Real Madrid coach has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but United chiefs have understandably looked elsewhere in pursuit of long-term success.

However, after failure with David Moyes and now struggles under Louis van Gaal, it appears that they could finally be open to appointing the self-proclaimed 'Special One'.

It certainly appears that Van Gaal's future in Manchester hangs in the balance. In fact, the same report from The Sun claims that the Dutchman could be sacked before Boxing Day's showdown against Stoke City. 

United's form has been terrible recently; without a victory in six games and three successive defeats have seen the Red Devils dumped out of the Champions League, while they've surrendered their position inside the top four. 

The potential appointment of Mourinho would be a controversial one, of course, but it appears that it really could happen.
