Reports: Mourinho Sets Deadline For Man Utd Deal

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly given Manchester United until the beginning of May to make a formal approach for him.

Fergie Sends Pep A Warning

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has ignored the Portuguese's availability up until now, and has refused to entertain rumours that Louis van Gaal will be sacked, despite the team's inconsistent run of results.

The Dutchman has come under intense scrutiny at Old Trafford, but Woodward has so far remained unmoved and has continuously backed the current manager.

However, according to The Guardian, it is now believed that Mourinho has issued the Red Devils a deadline of the beginning of May to make a decision as to whether they want him or not.

The Portuguese has been careful not to push himself forward for the United position, and has been also been content to wait for the job – up until now, it seems.
