The chances of Arsenal winning the Premier League for the first time in over a decade are currently looking good. We have already seen the current champions Chelsea lose all hope of retaining the trophy and even if Jose Mourinho had not been sacked and managed to turn their form around, he would have needed a miracle.
But the manager who always took such delight in aiming insults and slurs at Arsene Wenger could still have a say in the title race and he could still stop his rival from lifting the EPL trophy at the end of the season. That is if Manchester United decide to get rid of their own under fire manager and replace Louis van Gaal with Mourinho.
That really is on the cards according to a report in The Independent. The paper explains that the former Chelsea boss has had his agent release a statement making it clear that he wants a quick return to management and that the Old Trafford job is right at the top of his wish list.
The report also reveals that Mourinho has already rejected the chance to go back to Italy’s Serie A with Roma and that suggests to me that he thinks the United job might soon be his. Hos time at Chelsea this season may have been a disaster but Mourinho is well known for making a big impact when he takes over. And with United sitting just four points behind us, that could be bad news for the Gunners.
Do you think United will take the risk and if so, will Mourinho still be able to stop his old rival Wenger from winning the Premier League?
