Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho has been on hype since some time now, while we all believe that he is the next Manchester United manager and will be replacing Louis Van Gaal in June, rumors factory do like to run wild and further make crazy claims.
According to Spanish Newspaper El Pais, Real Madrid are not happy under their new manager Zinedine Zidane and hence the most suitable candidate who could have been able to make the players and the club happy would have been Mourinho, however if we see this logically Mourinho is the most suitable candidate as he will always remain the apple of Florentino Perez’s eye.
‘Spanish newspaper El Pais have an article on Monday saying that there’s murmurings at Real Madrid over Zinedine Zidane. Already. It’s apparently not thought the Frenchman is ready for the job he’s currently in, and Real Madrid wanted someone else instead.
That someone else is stated as being Jose Mourinho, and El Pais say Real Madrid negotiated throughout January with Jorge Mendes, over Mourinho sensationally returning to Madrid. However, El Pais says the calls stopped and Madrid’s Jose Angel Sanchez found out Mourinho had signed a pre-contract agreement with, wait for it, you’re never going to guess… Manchester United.
There’s a penalty clause if either side pull out of the agreement, say El Pais, and in the ‘presidential entourage’ (Florentino Perez’s mates) it’s thought that Real Madrid were used by the Mourinho camp to pressure Manchester United.’
Further reports claim that Manchester United will need to sign the final contract as soon as May 1st and if United delay their offer then they will need to pay the Portuguese manager £5m and if the signing gets further delayed till June 1st , United will need to pay £10m more to Mourinho. Honestly it just seems too wayward that Jorge Mendes’ organization Gestifute will give in so much information regarding Mourinho to anybody.
