Jose Mourinho signs Manchester United contract, Official announcement date revealed


A change seems inevitable at Manchester United as fresh news of Jose Mourinho signing the contract to be their next manager at Old Trafford have surfaced today.

According to reports from Daily Express and Sky Sports, Mourinho’s appointment will be revealed before the end of current season.

The news has been supported by Sun’s Neil Custis who believes Louis Van Gaal’s FA Cup run will not be enough for him to keep hold of his job at Old Trafford.

According to Custis, United board have looked at the results and performance over the past 18 months and it has not been good enough.

Custis believes United’s hierarchy are no longer longer convinced with Van Gaal’s philosophies and are eager to part ways with their Dutch manager.

Same has been echoed by Daily Telegraph, who believe Van Gaal’s FA Cup success will not be enough to save his job as he has not been good enough.

Going out of Champions League at the group stage followed by poor results in the league has not gone well within the club which has now worked in Mourinho’s favor. United are struggling to make in to top-4 as well, which was seen as the priority when season had begun.

According to Express, official announcement could follow in next 2 weeks by when we will get a clear picture whether Manchester United will play Champions League or Europa League football next season.

Announcing the decision now would guarantee Jose his next job and would give both manager and the club enough time to prepare for next season.
