Mourinho Edges Closer To Manchester Dream

Jose Mourinho is close to agreeing personal terms with Manchester United to become their new manager.


It was expected that Mourinho's agent, Jorge Mendes, and Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, would meet in London today to discuss a deal in person.
Now Sky sources have confirmed the pair are already close to reaching an agreement after negotiations via phone and email last night and extended into this morning.
Manchester United's lawyers have now been instructed to draw up a draft contract, meaning today's scheduled talks between Mr Woodward and Mr Mendes in London may not be needed after all.
Sources close to the deal have told Sky News the negotiations were "easy", mainly due to Mourinho's overwhelming desire to become Manchester United manager.

They expect a deal to be signed in the next 48 hours.
An official presentation confirming Mourinho's appointment could be scheduled for later this week.
It is also understood that the Portuguese will offer United legend Ryan Giggs a coaching role - but not the position of assistant manager.
The appointment will come less than six months after he was sacked by Chelsea last season.
They may have won the Premier League in 2015, but the west London side had lost nine of their first 16 league games and were only just above the relegation zone when he lost the job.

Despite his early departure from Chelsea, with whom he also won the League Cup in 2015, the 53-year-old is regarded as one of the best football managers in the world.
The self-proclaimed "Special One" has won the Champions League twice and league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain, where he managed Real Madrid.
In his first spell with Chelsea between 2004 and 2007, Mourinho won five trophies including two league titles and took them to the semi-final of the Champions League.

But he had faced growing criticism after United crashed out of the Champions League in the group phase and then failed to qualify for next season.
Fans also complained about the team's style of football, branding it dull and unadventurous, and have booed them off the pitch on a number of occasions.
He was sacked on Monday after details of his severance package, worth around £5m, were finalised.
