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.

In his short stay at West Bromwich Albion, Jonny Evans has managed to impress his manager with his attitude.
Evans, who is predominantly a centre half, has not shown hesitation in playing out of position whenever he has been asked to do so.
There have been games where he has had to play in the left because of the injuries and unavailability of the players and he has gleefully accepted that role.
Showering plaudits on him yesterday, Tony Pulis, the man in charge of West Brom, said, “Jonny is a fantastic personality. His career at United was a mixed bag. I thought he was a bit hard done by on certain occasions when he did fairly decently and still found himself out of the team. Hopefully, it’s not the case with him here at Hawthorns and he manages to be a lot more successful.”
“Attitude is vital at this level and Jonny is top class in that regard. He is a manager’s delight. You go to him and hand him any responsibility, he would take it for the sake of the team.”
“He was injured and had not trained properly ahead of the match the previous weekend. Still, I asked him to feature in a position which is not his preferred position and he was ready. That tells you something about the character of the man. He has no egos at all, a wonderful man to work alongside. ”
West Bromwich Albion is no. 13 in the Premier League 2015-16 at this point of time. They have secured 5 wins and 5 draws and have collected a total of 20 points.
They have to play their next match against Bournemouth. That match will kick off at 3 PM British Standard Time at Hawthorns the coming Saturday.
