Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly written to Manchester United, outlining why he would be a suitable fit for the under fire Louis Van Gaal’s position.
The Independent on Sunday also claims Mourinho offered a “forensic analysis” of the Old Trafford squad in what it called a “love letter” to the club.
According to the report, Mourinho explains in the letter how he would be prepared to adapt his style of management to suit the demands at Old Trafford, and how he would seek to overhaul the squad.
Mourinho who left Chelsea in December after a poor start to the season, despite his team winning the Barclays Premier League in the previous campaign is available.
The 52-year-old Portuguese’s fondness for United is well known and he has been linked with the job before, but United chose David Moyes to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 and Van Gaal to come in a year later.
Van Gaal and his troops were booed off after Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Southampton.
