Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho may not be impressing everyone right now, but Paris Saint-Germain is certainly impressed. Mourinho, 54, spoke glowingly about PSG last month and numerous reports in France and the UK claim that Les Parisiens have reached out to Mourinho’s agent, Jorge Mendes, about him managing in the French capital, plus Mourinho wants assurances United will spend PSG-level cash. After a huge splurge this summer which saw them break the world transfer record twice to sign Neymar from Barcelona for $265 million and Kylian Mbappe from Monaco for $208 million, Mourinho wants United’s hierarchy to back him in the transfer market. Another report from the BBC says that Mourinho has been told he must sell players in January before he can bring in anyone else. Hmmm. In his previous interview with French outlet TF1, Mourinho said that he would not finish his coaching career at Old Trafford which led to PSG, currently coached by Unai Emery, reaching out about his availability.
