Manchester United target Mourinho confirms he will be joining a new club in July

Manchester United target Jose Mourinho has reportedly confirmed he will commence a new managerial job this summer.

The former Chelsea manager is understood to have told BT Sport in an interview to be aired later this week that he is set to begin working with an unnamed club in July.

Mourinho has been heavily linked with the top job at Old Trafford, should the Red Devils opt to part ways with current manager Louis van Gaal at the end of the season.

It is understood van Gaal has been told by United, who currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League, that he must ensure the Red Devils secure qualification for next season’s Champions League, or risk losing his job.
