Jose Mourinhoa s agent has confirmed that no a official proposala has been made to the Portuguese manager as Louis van Gaala s job comes under intense scrutiny at Manchester United. Amid rumours regarding Van Gaala s departure, Jorge Mendes remained guarded about Mourinhoa s future without refusing to deny the managera s interest in the job at Old Trafford.
Louis van Gaala s future has been cast into doubt following Manchester Uniteda s 1-2 defeat against Norwich City. Jose Mourinho has been increasingly linked with the top job at United after being sacked from his position at Chelsea.
There hasna t been an official proposal from Manchester United
Speaking to Globoesporte, Mendes clarified that Mourinho wasna t going to replace his mentor at Manchester United. As reported by the Guardian, Mendes however, did not deny Mourinhoa s interest in the job, leaving the door open for further negotiations in the future.
a There is nothing.
a We dona t know what will happen in the future, but now there is no agreement. There isna t an official proposal either, thata s not true.a
We dona t know about the future
While Mendes claimed that Mourinho wasna t due to replace Louis van Gaal immediately, footballa s super-agent however remained non-committal over his future. Louis van Gaala s fate is likely to be decided in the coming weeks as United gear up for a hectic end to the calendar year.
Should the Dutchman eventually face the sack this season, it will be interesting to see if Manchester United replace him temporarily with assistant manager Ryan Giggs or appoint Jose Mourinho as his permanent successor at Old Traffford. the fact that Pep Guardiola will be up for grabs next season could further influence United’s decision.
