Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wants to replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United manager in the summer.
This has been reported by the Daily Mail, who claim that the Portuguese tactician is in talks with the Red Devils.
Mourinho, of course, has been without a job since he departed Stamford Bridge earlier this season.

The experienced coach endured a torrid opening half to the season in west London, so it didn't come as a major surprise when he left the club behind for the second time.
Now, then, it appears that he's set to return to the Premier League as manager of the Red Devils. The same report from the Mail claims that Mourinho hasn't signed a deal with United at this stage but has his heart set on the job.
Changes in Manchester
In fact, the Mail also claim that Manchester United believe that Mourinho is the one man who can go head-to-head with Pep Guardiola when attempting to sign new players.
Guardiola is set to replace Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad at the end of the season, meaning one of the greatest managerial rivalries in football could be about to reignite in Manchester.
Mourinho and Guardiola, of course, had an intense battle when they were in charge of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
It will certainly be interesting to see how the Mourinho saga develops over the coming weeks and months, but it certainly appears that the dynamic at Manchester United is about to change.
