Reports coming from Italy have it that former Chelsea boss is just a step away from agreeing to be the new Manchester United boss.
Jose is preferred to be the best replacement of Van Gaal once he is shown the door. There are claims that Ed Woodward, Man-U vice chairman is ready to replace Van Gaal this summer. Once that happens, Jose, who left Chelsea before Christmas is the ideal candidate to replace him.
In a tweet, the Italian Sky journalist posted that the deal with Jose is sealed already.
There still remains a one more year in Van Gaal’s deal to be the Manchester United boss. It is however, understood that the red devils would like to see him out.
His continued stay will be determined by whether the Man-U form will get better between now and the end of the season.
In case they do not qualify for the Champions League, the Dutchman will be under heavy pressure.
Next week, Woodward will give an address to the investors. It is during that address that he is likely to be asked about the future of his manager.
The move of Pep Guardiola to Manchester City only acts as a fueling factor in scrutinizing the survival of Van Gaal in Manchester United. It could play a major role in changing the hierarchy at Old Trafford.
It will be remembered that Jose Mourinho left Chelsea after a span of poor performances. If the “Special One” manages to become the new red devils boss, the fans will be eager to see on how he will manage any pressure.
In the past matches, the former Chelsea boss and the current Manchester United manager have been seen to have a good relationship. That fact, combined with the desire to get a matching competitor for Pep Guardiola will play a major role in pulling Jose to Manchester United.
