Mourinho signs Manchester United contract, Will this be his starting XI next season?

According to Express and Sky Sports, Jose Mourinho has signed a contract earlier today to be the next Manchester United manager.

British media are convinced that United will announce the Jose’s appointment in next 2 weeks and will give him enough time to earmark his summer targets and sign them before the start of next season.

So far, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Renato Sanches and John Stones have been seen as the ideal transfer signings for The Red Devils, which would make United one of the strongest teams next season.

Having said that, we decided to take a look at the possible Man United lineup under Jose Mourinho when he takes charge at Old Trafford later in the summer.

Ideally he prefers to stick with his 4-2-3-1 system which would see the likes of Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini drop out of the side.

Among the summer signings, Stones and Ibrahimovic will start if they indeed sign for the club. At present, Jose Mourinho’s revolution looks set to take place in the summer and begin a new era at Old Trafford.

With Mourinho’s arrival, Manchester United would hope to persuade David De Gea to stay for another season while John Stones would add a greater degree of cover to United’s defense.

Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger will once again be fit next season and will be big players for The Special One’s plans.

Wayne Rooney has done well from the midfield role in recent weeks and under Mourinho, he may well be used from the number 10 role. Anthony Martial will continue playing from the left wing, while the new signing Renato Sanches will join the attack from right hand side.

Upfront it will be Zlatan who will be given the responsibility to lead Manchester United’s attack next season. Mercurial PSG striker has expressed his desires to work with Mourinho once again and it could become a reality later in the summer.
