It was reported earlier that former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was poised to become the next Manchester United manager in the next season.

Manchester United have asked Jose Mourinho to replace Van Gaal as manager, in the summer of 2017.
However, according to some sources, it has been stated that United executive vice-chairman Woodward has asked the Portuguese manager to wait for another year in order to bag the United job.

One of the major reasons for this decision is the fact that Woodward is reluctant to sack current United manager Louis Van Gaal who still has a year left on the contract he signed in 2014. It has been stated that is because Woodward feels that it would mean that he made a mistake in appointing the Dutchman in the first place.

With Mourinho very much interested in coming back to management in this summer itself, it seems that the former Real Madrid has refused the offer put forth by Woodward and is not ready to wait for another year having come this close.

Mourinho has also been linked with a move to PSG in the past few weeks and it can be a possibility that the Portuguese manager may choose to move to France given the current developments.
