Reports: Man Utd Pick Next Boss

Manchester United have reportedly chosen their manager for next season, and it is not former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

It has been rumoured in recent months that the Portuguese tactician was the man likely to replace Louis van Gaal should they sack him, but according to Marca, those plans have changed.

Although the Dutchman has been highly criticised by United fans during his time as manager, club legend and influential director Alex Ferguson recently backed Van Gaal for his willingness to promote the club's youth.

The report claimed that it is for this reason that Mourinho might not be appointed, as, over the years, the Portuguese has not proved to be the biggest believer in bringing young talent into his senior squads.

The Red Devils' board have reportedly picked Ryan Giggs to succeed the Dutchman, believing that the Welshman would not overshadow the club like some think Mourinho would.

The former Chelsea boss has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks, with manager Laurent Blanc's future in France uncertain, while the Premier League will welcome Pep Guardiola to Manchester City, and Antonio Conte to Chelsea, next season.

There have also been reports linking Mourinho with a Real Madrid return, although the Portuguese has expressed his desire to stay in the Premier League.
