Momentum is picking up speed in the claims that Jose Mourinho is ready to take over as the manager of Manchester United.
Spanish daily El Confidencial have today gone to print with some of the details of the Special One’s proposed new employment contract at Old Trafford.
As those details leak out from Iberia, over in France, So Foot are reporting that Mourinho’s arrival at United may spark the departure of Ryan Giggs.
The thrust of the story is easy enough to digest: Giggs, who has been an assistant coach under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, while he’s also had a taste at being the interim coach at United after Moyes’s departure, doesn’t want to work for Mourinho.
It’s seems that Giggs is fed up with always being the bridesmaid and never the bride.
Stepping backwards, however, the report from So Foot does raise some questions.
Most importantly, is there any actual evidence to back up their Giggs-quit claim?
While the story makes sense from a distance, one has to wonder how So Foot know what they claim to know. You can bet your bottom dollar that Giggs didn’t ring up the Gallic news outlet to reveal his career plans.
