Jose Mourinho is set to be announced as the next manager of Manchester United just hours after the club's FA Cup final showdown against Crystal Palace. 

This has been reported by AS, who claim that the former Chelsea manager signed a pre-contract with the Red Devils after negotiations with the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. 

Indeed, the report indicates that Mourinho will take charge of United for the next three years and could earn as much as €15 million each season.

The self-proclaimed 'Special One' has been out of management since departing Stamford Bridge back in December. 

His Chelsea tenure ended abruptly, of course, but it's safe to say that he will be desperate to prove his critics wrong.

With Mourinho incoming, then, it appears that current United boss Louis van Gaal is set to take charge of his final match as the club's manager in today's final. 

The experienced Dutchman has endured a tricky campaign at the Theatre of Dreams - United missed out on a place in the Premier League's top four - but it appears that he can end his reign on a high with a victory at Wembley. 

One thing is for sure, it looks set to be yet another summer of change at Old Trafford. For now, though, fans of the famous club will just be hoping to see their team secure FA Cup silverware.
