Jose Mourinho is to become the new Manchester United manager, replacing Louis van Gaal in the summer
Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea after a disastrous start to this season

Mourinho lifted his third Premier League title with Chelsea last season, before the unprecedented collapse

With Pep Guardiola set to take over at Manchester City, the pair will resume their rivalry

Mourinho has his heart set on the job, but does not want to take over in the middle of a season

Mourinho was sounded out by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 about the possibility of becoming his successor

The former Chelsea boss has turned down the chance to return to Spain, and wants the United job

Louis van Gaal has been under pressure at United all season, as results and performances have suffered

After their latest win, Van Gaal's side are fifth in the Premier League, five points off a Champions League spot

The Dutch manager is in his second year of a three-year contract but is not expected to reach its end
