Jose Mourinho to Manchester United is finally done.
Mourinho signed his deal in London today evening and will replace Dutch manager Louis Van Gaal.
The former Chelsea manager was in talks with the Premier League giants over the last few weeks and recent reports claim that his agent Jorge Mendes flew into UK to seal the deal yesterday. The move was however delayed because of issues regarding Mourinho’s image rights and signature registration with Chelsea.
Sky Sports also add that Mourinho returned home at around 5.20 pm with documents in his hand and a bottle of red wine. The Portuguese manager met with United’s executive vice chairman Ed Woodward to complete the deal.
The deal was also confirmed by the Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand on his Twitter account.
