5 Players Who Mourinho Would Sell If He Joins Manchester United

Jose Mourinho’s chances of becoming the next Manchester United manager are growing as each day passes. It was widely reported that the Portuguese was the man chosen to take over from Sir Alex Ferguson after the Scot left the Manchester team, but that couldn’t materialize. Louis van Gaal reportedly has only a couple of games to save his job and it could be Jose Mourinho taking over the duties by the side-line come the New Year.

That would be the perfect timing for Mourinho as he could stamp his authority in the team and make a few changes, which Manchester United have needed for quite a while. Mourinho might get a thick wad of cash to spend on the team if he does takeover, but that would mean the end of the road for a few Manchester United players.

5. Juan Mata

Manchester United’s most expensive signing at one point of time; Juan Mata has certainly starred for the club ever since David Moyes signed him up despite him being the Chelsea player of the season twice in a row.

Jose Mourinho didn’t think he was good enough or in fact, didn’t fit his system at Chelsea and he was promptly sold him to one of his rivals. If Mourinho does end up at Manchester United, it could well be time for Mata to pack his bags and search for a new club.
