Various news sources are reporting that Mourinho is confident he is next in line for Man United job. In fact he has even started telling his friends that he will step up when Louis Van Gaal is axed.

The ex-Chelsea boss has been without a job since he was publicly fired from the blues. Rumours have been swirling for some time regarding Van Gaals fate as Man United struggle to perform this season.

There has been some speculation as to who will take over if the Dutch man leaves. Pep Guardiola was in the mix but has since signed on at rival club Manchester City. Jose wants to stay in England so a Premier League club will be the most logical choice for him. But the question is do the Premier League clubs still want him?
