Confirmed- Mourinho will face Pep in the Manchester Derby next season

Jose Mourinho is all set to become the next Manchester United manager next season. Spanish paper El Confidencial reported that they are 100% sure that there is already an agreement between Jose Mourinho and Manchester United which has been brokered by Jorge Mendes. El Confidencial is a very reliable source and especially when it comes to matters involving Real Madrid and Jorge Mendes they usually get it right.

The report also suggested that Pep Guardiola was apprehensive to take the Manchester City job as he didn’t want to get into an intense rivalry with Mourinho again. Now the two great rivals will live in the same city and might be even next door neighbours.

This will signal a huge power shift in European football as English clubs who have been struggling for sometime now in Europe have two of the best managers in world football. And more importantly they are at clubs which have unlimited spending power. This summer will be one of the most exciting times for football fans as we can expect a lot of transfer activity and lot of star names moving around.
