The Portuguese manager is expected to take over at Old Trafford this summer and it appears that a deal is all but done.
Portuguese media have confirmed that Mourinho is buying a house in Manchester.
The former Chelsea manager was sacked by the Blues a few months ago after a poor start to the season and is eyeing a way back into management with Manchester United.
Mourinho has been linked with the Old Trafford job ever since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down and it will be interesting to see if he finally gets the job.
There have been several reports of the Portuguese agreeing to manage Manchester United over the last few months and recently the Inter Milan director also confirmed that the Portuguese is indeed headed to Manchester.
Van Gaal has failed to deliver after spending huge sums of money and is expected to leave the club at the end of the season.
