The Portuguese coach, who has been tipped to replace Louis van Gaal in Manchester following the Dutchman’s dismal campaign, could be installed at the club before the summer.
Should he arrive, Mourinho will likely insist on a considerable budget with which to reshape the Red Devils’ squad and achieve the kind of success that the club’s fans crave.
According to the Mirror, one of his first signings could be Zlatan who, while set to be a free agent this summer, will likely command a hefty contract.
The 34-year-old has fuelled speculation that he’s on the brink of agreeing a move to Old Trafford by cryptically suggesting that he’s primed to try his hand in the Premier League.
When questioned about a move to England, the striker responded: “Let’s just say, I’m in shape for it.”
According to the tabloid, Mourinho was keen to have Zlatan with him at Chelsea, but could get the chance to hook up with the Swedish superstar sooner rather than later!
