Harry Redknapp has claimed that Jose Mourinho to Manchester United is a ‘done deal’, as first reported by Sportsmail.
The 53-year-old is out of work after being sacked by Chelsea in December following a poor start to the season.
Sportsmail revealed earlier in February that Mourinho was close to agreeing to terms with the Old Trafford club to replace Louis van Gaal, and Redknapp has re-emphasised this.
‘It hasn’t worked out at all for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United,’ he told Sirius XM.
‘It’s been a disaster for him – no doubt about that.’
The 68-year-old then claimed that his own sources have confirmed to him the truth of the deal.
‘From the people I know who are in the know, Jose Mourinho to United is a done deal.’
Mourinho has already confided in close friends that he will be taking over at Old Trafford in the summer, with van Gaal increasingly under pressure following a poor second season in charge.
