The talk regarding Jose Mourinho signing up for Manchester United as a replacement for Louis van Gaal has cooled down a bit but it only seems inevitable that the Portuguese’s manager takes up from the Dutch master at the Manchester club.
There might be a move in the January transfer window if things don’t go right but for the sake of Mourinho he would want to spend a lot of time to understand the players that he has and how he can get the best out of them.
While Juan Mata must be sweating it out thinking about his future if Mourinho does sign for them – the Spaniard could well be sold once again under Mourinho – the manager has a habit of making his teams perform better and the players reciprocate that performance as well.
United have struggled to find any sort of form or rhythm under Van Gaal this season and most of them have performed well below par. Jose Mourinho could act as the catalyst to increase the performance levels of the players and here are five players who would love to work under Mourinho.
- Wayne Rooney
The one player who has struggled at United this season, more than others it seems. Wayne Rooney was one of the players that actually attracted the interest of Jose Mourinho during his time at Real and then at Chelsea in his second stint. Mourinho has always admired Rooney and maybe the English star needs Mourinho to work his magic and help him get the groove back, at least for his performances if not the goals.
