Mourinho already has identified his first signing as Man Utd Boss

English daily The Sun has reported that Jose Mourinho has identified Wesley Sneijder as the man who could potentially become the magic ingredient for Manchester United. Wesley Sneijder of course has been eternally linked to Manchester United but has never come close to completing a deal with the Premier league giants. Although at the moment taking into account Sniejder’s age and form, United won’t have any problem in signing him if they want to. Mourinho who has worked with Sneijder at Inter will of course favour his former player as Sneijder played some of his best football under Mourinho.

Of course all this is conjecture unless the United board decide to sack Van Gaal and bring in Mourinho. After the loss against Norwich, the pressure on Van Gaal has increased tremendously. Mourinho’s sacking has only increased the speculation about the United manager as United now have a ready made world class manager in Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho if he signs for United would like to make a few signings in the January window as he would like stamp his style on a squad which has under achieved immensely over the course of three seasons.
