Backpages: Jose Mourinho on the brink of Manchester United job

by Sam Peoples

The main newspaper back page story about Manchester United comes from the Daily Mail on Saturday.

Dominic King says Jose Mourinho is on the brink of getting the Man United job and will renew his rivalry with Pep Guardiola in Manchester.

Reporting the story as an exclusive, King says the deal is yet to be agreed, which falls in line with the BBC and Gianluca di Marzio, but is clearly confident a deal is in the pipeline.

This story about Mourinho to United has really gathered pace over the last 72 hours and I fully expect that to continue over the weekend and United’s game with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Either everybody is completely wrong and Mourinho’s representatives have never spoken with United or there is a wide and truthful brief going round the press about the early stages of Mourinho’s move to United.

We’ll leave it up to you to decide which side of the fence you sit on.
