Manchester United and Jose Mourinho are reportedly close to agreeing to terms on a deal, which would see the former Chelsea boss take the reigns at Old Trafford from next season.

Sky Sport Italia has reported that Mourinho is close to agreeing to terms on a deal which would once again see Pep Guardiola and Mourinho pitted against each other.

It appears to be only a matter of time before Louis van Gaal is given the sack from United after another frustrating season for the Red Devils and Mourinho looks ready to pounce on the vacant position.
