This source suggests that the Eastlands outfit is ready to swing the axe on their current boss, and have a hugely talented replacement already lined up!
THE SUN: Manchester City will offer Jose Mourinho an astonishing £15million a year to take over as boss. (Blackpool Gazette)
It would be very hasty for the new owners of Manchester City to sack Mark Hughes, but it does seem that it will be a case of when and not if. It would be a brave man to bet that the former Blackburn Rovers man would still be at the helm come the beginning of next season. Sven should never have been sacked in the first place, and Sparky has been pretty decent in the face of the massive changes at the club in recent months, but Jose Mourinho could arguably claim to be a better bet for a club with top four ambitions and the former Chelsea man could well be the man to move the side into their next era.
Do Blues fans think that Hughes will still be in a job in six months time?
