With the announcement that Jose Mourinho will be taking charge of Manchester United soon, we should expect plenty of changes happening at Old Trafford on and off the pitch.
Mourinho has a particular way of managing his team, and he is sure going to transform the way Manchester United look at the moment. Fans should be prepared for a busy summer at Old Trafford.
The first thing that he will want to sort out will be his team. Manchester United do need a recognized striker at the moment, and it is highly possible that Jose Mourinho might be going for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The latter is out of contract after having left Paris Saint-Germain and will be the kind of player that the Portuguese manager like. Indeed, he already managed Ibrahimovic at Inter Milan, and it is highly possible that they might be reunited again.
A decision will also have to be made about Ryan Giggs. The latter has been the assistant of Louis van Gaal, and it is unlikely that he will continue in the same role under Mourinho. He would feel that it was his destiny to take charge of Manchester United after the departure of Van Gaal and now that Mourinho might be taking over, it is tough to find Giggs staying.

Louis van Gaal expressed his delight at beating Manchester City in a crucial derby last weekend.
Even though United managed only in narrow 1-0 win, it represented three points and a major boost to their aspirations of finishing in the top four. It may still not be enough to save Van Gaal’s job, as the Dutchman is odds-on favourite to get the sack in the summer. However, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager says that United can build on that performance from now till the end of the season. Marcus Rashford came up with a goal in the 16th minute to give the troubled United manager some respite from the criticism.
United have closed the gap on rivals City to just one point, although they have slipped behind West Ham into the sixth spot. Following the early exit from the Champions League and the aggregate 3-1 loss against Liverpool in the Europa League, Van Gaal was hoping for some good news. Rashford has been an excellent find from the youth academy and the 18-year-old striker has already scored three in four league appearances. Only time will tell if he becomes the next Bobby Charlton or Federico Macheda, who made a similar start only to falter later. One thing is for sure, on his £50,000 a week wages he won’t have to worry about getting a discount card Manchester!? Continue reading Louis van Gaal expressed his delight at beating Manchester City
