According to a report, Paris Saint-Germain have their eyes set on Jose Mourinho to succeed Unai Emery behind the bench. It appears that PSG has even gone far enough to make contact with the Portuguese’s representatives about a potential move.
Recently, Mourinho spoke highly about PSG. “At the moment in Paris there is something special. Magic, quality, youth, it’s fantastic.” Those came on the heel of his highly-publicized comment about wanting to end his career somewhere other than at Manchester United.
The flirtation with PSG raised eyebrows at Old Trafford — as will this latest approach. It is not the first time they have attempted to get him, having tried to hijack his appointment at Old Trafford in summer 2016.
Mourinho is nearly halfway through his three-year contract and United want to tie him down to a new one but there have been no negotiations so far. However, Manchester United executives feel that he’s got the organization back on a positive track for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
