Manchester United have had a rough season so far but the owners are prepared to wait till the end of the season to make changes to the hierarchy and the squad in a bid to get the team back to its best.
Louis van Gaal has just not been able to win over the Old Trafford faithful and his contract is as good as terminated at the end of this season.
This has put the club in search of a top class manager and one name that has constantly popped up has been Portuguese genius Jose Mourinho.
Earlier it was reported that Mourinho was close to accepting a deal with the Manchester outfit after having been sacked by Chelsea in December. However, there has not been any official meeting between both the parties but the ex-Real Madrid boss still seems to be the favorite to land the job.
However, it is now reported that Mourinho is fed up of waiting for the Old Trafford side to make their move and offer him the chance to replace Louis Van Gaal.
Being one of the most illustrious managers in Europe at the moment, Mourino surely will have job offers from top clubs all around Europe and it is now understood that the 53-year-old is ready to listen to offers from other leagues.
He is reportedly been contacted by Italian franchise Inter Milan for a return back to San Siro where he led the side to the Treble In 2010.
Mourinho and chief lieutenant Rui Faria has agreed to meet Inter co-owner Massimo Moratti this weekend, as a guest in the side’s Serie A game with Sampdoria.
The Portuguese has already refused offers from Real Madrid and AS Roma but accepting Moatti’s invitation is a sign that the manager is no longer willing to wait for the Old Trafford club to make the move.
Moratti was devastated to lose Mourinho to Real Madrid six years ago and although he sold a 70 per cent stake in the club to Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir in 2013 he remains hugely influential.
Though Moratti has been a controversial figure in his time at Inter Milan, he is now reportedly ready to make an attempt to buy back a controlling bloc of shares and make Mourinho a compelling offer to come “home”.
This has opened a possibility for Mourinho to once again replace a fierce competitor like he did when he took over Roberto Mancini’s job at Inter Milan in 2008.
Surely last night’s loss to FC Midtjylland will add a lot of pressure on the United manager and Ed Woodward who might now want to reconsider the trust he has shown in the Dutchman.
However, if Van Gaal is given more time, Manchester United might just let Joe Mourinho slip through their hands even before the end of the season.
