Mourinho: No Manchester United deal in place

The former Chelsea boss has been heavily linked with the Red Devils, with Louis van Gaal under pressure, but he maintains that he has yet to agree to a move to any club

Jose Mourinho has again denied he has a deal in place to take over at Manchester United this summer.

The Portuguese has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea last December following a poor defence to the Premier League title, but he has suggested more than once that a return to management is on the cards ahead of the 2016-17 season.

Mourinho has been heavily linked with a move to United, with Louis van Gaal’s future still under scrutiny, while more recent speculation has suggested that the former Real Madrid manager is in talks with PSG.

However, Mourinho is adamant that he does not have an agreement in place with any club.

“With nobody,” Mourinho told Sky Sports when asked whether a deal is in place with Manchester United.

“I go to Montreal for the Grand Prix and carry on enjoying my life.”

Mourinho remains the favourite to replace Van Gaal at United ahead of next season, with the Dutchman set to fail in his bid to take United into the top four.

The Red Devils face AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday and know that they need a 19-0 victory to overhaul Manchester City and qualify for the Champions League.
