Manchester United are looking forward to replace Louis van Gaal with Jose Mourinho before the end of February.
The former Chelsea manager has already held talks with the club about succeeding Louis van Gaal and he is confident of becoming the next Old Trafford boss.
The club’s board now think they have nothing to lose by appointing Mourinho this month. Any change could even be before their next Premier League game, which is against Arsenal on February 28.
Van Gaal’s future at United got under risk when his side suffered a 2-1 defeat to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
