Football: PSG 'approach Mourinho' about becoming their new manager
Manchester United will part ways with current manager Louis van Gaal this summer even if he manages to win the FA Cup at the end of the season - with Jose Mourinho back in line to replace him - according to the Mirror. The latest twist in the ongoing managerial saga suggests that Van Gaal has not done enough this season to keep a hold of his job, and current reports claim that Sir Alex Ferguson's opposition to switching from Van Gaal to Mourinho is weakening. Van Gaal set for the sack?...
Paris Saint-Germain have made an approach to Jose Mourinho to become their new manager this summer, according to Sky sources.
PSG chairman Nasser al Khelaifi is reported to have approached Mourinho through his agent Jorge Mendes after PSG's Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester City last week.
Sky Sports are reporting that Mourinho's preference is to wait until the end of the season and see if the Manchester United job is still available.
Mourinho's friendship with Al Khelaifi pre-dates the Qatari's ownership of PSG. Al Khelaifi has tried to appoint the 53-year-old as manager twice before, and remains convinced the Portuguese is the man most likely to achieve the club's ambition of winning the Champions League.
Current PSG boss Laurent Blanc signed a new two-year contract in February but Al Khelaifi wants Mourinho to replace him this summer.
