Jose Mourinho to be officially announced as the manager of Manchester United on Tuesday

Manchester United’s failure to secure Champions League qualification dampened the excitement that the FA Cup victory gave the Red Devils last season.

However, they have plenty to look forward to in the next season with a lot of change in personnel at the club.

The previous manager Louis van Gaal was relieved of his duties as the manager of the club back in May when it was announced that Jose Mourinho, the ex-Chelsea boss who was sacked at Stamford Bridge earlier last season will take over the club for the next campaign.

And it is now understood that the Portuguese genius will be officially unveiled as the new manager of Manchester United in a press conference on Tuesday.

This will be the first public appearance for Jose Mourinho since moving to the club and is his first chance to have an impact on the fans.

Mourinho, though was confirmed long ago has not officially appeared speaking about his relation with the club and it is understood that the press conference on Tuesday will give him a chance to reveal his ambitions for the United side.

However, he has already done a lot of work behind the scenes at the club.

Mourinho has officially been a part of Manchester United only since Monday after the transfer window was open but he has managed to change a lot at Old Trafford in a short span.

He has managed to extend the contracts of the likes of Marcus Rashford, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, and Michael Carrick but more importantly has added Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer and Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly on a reported £30million deal from Villarreal.

The manager is expected to provide an update on the move for Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan which has been close to an official for some days now.

But the biggest question that the Portuguese might have to answer might be about the French sensation Paul Pogba.

Pogba is on the radar of the Old Trafford outfit this summer as Mourinho is planning a stunning £80m swoop for the Juventus midfielder.

He will surely be questioned about the progress in talks between the two clubs for a potential move this summer.

It will be a familiar set-up for Mourinho who has in the past helped Chelsea, another English Premier League outfit to a Premier League title the season before the last.

Surely, his absence from the league was felt even in the half season that he was sacked, but now he is back in the league, it becomes all the more interesting.
