Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes he can win the Premier League title at Manchester United next season, according to the Daily Mail.
The Portuguese tactician appears to be the standout favourite to replace Louis van Gaal in the Old Trafford dugout.
Van Gaal, of course, has endured a torrid time in Manchester - the Red Devils currently sit in fifth place in the Premier League table - so it's not entirely surprising that his long-term future at the club has long been debated.

It's far from certain as to whether the Manchester United hierarchy are prepared to take a gamble on the enigmatic Mourinho, but it certainly appears that he wants to take on the job.
In fact, the same report from the Mail claims that Mourinho is desperate to become the next manager of the Red Devils.
The Mail also claims that Mourinho's agent, Jorge Mendes, was in contact with United chief executive Ed Woodward after Saturday's defeat at the hands of Southampton.
It appears that he gave the club a timely reminder that Mourinho is available and ready to replace Van Gaal at the helm.
It's certainly been a testing period for United, who take on Derby County in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday evening.
