Former Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho has reportedly signed a pre-contract agreement with Manchester United and will take over from current Old Trafford manager Louis van Gaal in the summer.
Wayne Veysey of Football Insider writes that the Portuguese has sealed a three-year deal with the Red Devils worth £48 million, equivalent to £308,000-a-week.
The report added that, despite increasing calls for Van Gaal to be sacked immediately, Mourinho, 53, will not take over until the end of the 2015-16 season.
Mourinho, who has won the Premier league 3 times with Chelsea, has been continually linked with the United job as their season has unravelled, and Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones believes he could be a big help at Old Trafford.
It is believed that Thursday night’s 2-1 defeat to FC Midtjylland in their Europa League last-32 first leg was what persuaded the club’s hierarchy—including those with reservations over Mourinho’s conduct, profile and style—to seal the deal with the two-time Champions League winner.
