Still, the speculation over Mourinho’s future will not die down as it’s now claimed the Portuguese is concerned United have made plans for his departure after being personally contacted by rumoured candidate to replace him, Zinedine Zidane, according to the Sun.

The Sun’s report goes on to state that Mourinho will now meet Ed Woodward in London for talks over the situation, with the 55-year-old tactician keen for reassurance over his position.
