Sunday Times journalist Duncan Castles has made a pretty sensational claim regarding the future of former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
Over the past week, multiple reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho’s future is finally all sown up with the Portuguese manager believed to have signed a pre-contract agreement with Manchester United.
Mourinho has been linked with a move to Old Trafford ever since he was given the sack for the second time at Stamford Bridge and the self proclaimed ‘Special One’ now looks destined to replace Louis van Gaal in the Old Trafford hotseat.
However, earlier this week, reports began to emerge claiming that Mourinho had also been approached by Arsenal and that the board at the Emirates were considering replacing Arsene Wenger with the former Chelsea man.
Although the reports initially appeared to be absolute garbage, today the highly reputable Duncan Castles has claimed that the stories are very real. Writing for One World Sports, Castles claims that Mourinho ‘could replace Arsene Wenger’ at Arsenal and that the Portuguese is considering an approach by the club.
The Portuguese manager – also the principal candidate to succeed Louis van Gaal at Manchester United – has been asked by third parties to avoid committing himself to a new job while Wenger’s future at the north London club remains unresolved.
Wenger, who has one year remaining on his Arsenal contract, has grown increasingly irritated by criticism of his achievements at the club. A rebellious section of Arsenal’s support is pressing American owner Stan Kroenke to force the 66-year-old to stand down and appoint a more modern-minded coach. – Duncan Castles writing for One World Sports.
It’s unknown how this one will play out but with Wenger apparently fed up of the ‘Wenger Out’ brigade and United still musing over the potential appointment of Ryan Giggs, it now seems plausible that Jose Mourinho could actually end up in the manager’s seat at Arsenal next season.
