Manchester United are lining up several managers to replace Jose Mourinho, according to reports.
The Portuguese has been vocal about his need to bring in new faces to the Old Trafford, complaining about the number of top players at the club’s preseason tour.
The Red Devils have been linked to a number of targets since the start of the summer window, and have successfully signed Fred with a positive indication that the club will go on to bring in new players as they look to mount a serious title challenge in the coming Premier League season.
It is understood that Jose Mourinho is under pressure to deliver trophies next season, and could suffer a complete breakdown, with reports that some senior squad members are already unsure of the manager’s approach in preseason drills.
Reports in the Sun have it that Manchester United chiefs are ready to replace Mourinho at any time during the campaign, and have started lining up names that will take over from him at the Old Trafford.
The report reveals United will try to lure former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane to the club if Mourinho decides to leave the club.
The French boss won three consecutive Champions League trophies at the Santiago Bernabeu before resigning to later become the manager of Qatari national team.
Jose Mourinho is believed to be at loggerheads with United transfer chiefs over their transfer business this summer, as he faces an uphill task of wrestling the title out of Manchester City’s hand this season.
