Jose Mourinho will reportedly replace Louis Van Gaal as Manchester United manager after the FA Cup final – on one condition.
According to ESPN, the Portuguese tactician’s camp has entered into advanced discussions with club representatives.
It has now been claimed that Mourinho has insisted that he has the final say on all transfer deals.
Although no contract has been signed, the former Chelsea boss will apparently replace Van Gaal next week.
The Dutchman was recently booed off the pitch by United's faithful during his end-of-season speech after his team's final Premier League game of the season.
Despite beating AFC Bournemouth 3-1 on the night, the Red Devils finished in fifth place, outside the all-important UEFA Champions League spots.
Van Gaal and United have at least one more game together, the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace on Saturday, but many believe that even a trophy win would not save his job.
So far, Mourinho's former mentor has won domestic cup competitions in the Netherlands, Spain and Germany, and has often claimed that the FA Cup was one of his main targets in England.
United last won the FA Cup in the 2003/04 campaign, and if they are victorious in their final on Saturday, it would be their first major trophy in three years – since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
