Jose Mourinho will be announced as Manchester United manager in the next two weeks after signing a contract to replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.
Foreign media reports that United held off late competition from Paris Saint-Germain for the former Chelsea boss, who has been heavily linked with the Red Devils for several months.
United had hoped to wait until the end of the season to confirm Mourinho, but news of him signing a contract leaked in Portugal yesterday and has forced their hand.
Van Gaal, in his second year in charge, has been under increasing pressure throughout a season which appears likely to end without the promise of Champions League football for next term.
United left it late with Everton after Antony Martial scored in the dying embers of the game to give the Red’s a green light to the fA cup finals.
However, an FA Cup win will not save Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United job, says Neil Custis, who is also sure Jose Mourinho will take over at Old Trafford in the summer.
