Jose Mourinho will be officially unveiled to the global media as Manchester United manager on Tuesday, 5 July. The Portuguese tactician was appointed as the new Red Devils coach on 27 May as he signed a three-year contract, with an option to further extend it by a year.

The 53-year-old was sacked from his post at Chelsea last December and was without a job in the second half of the 2015/16 season. However, the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager has returned to management, joining the west London club's league rivals.

Mourinho replaces Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford. The Dutchman was shown the exit door by executive vice chairman Ed Woodward just days after he guided United to the FA Cup triumph in May.

United have already signed Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer. The defender arrived in England from Villarreal, while the Swedish striker was a free agent after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired in June.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will also follow the duo after the Bundesliga outfit confirmed the fee for the transfer of the Armenian to Old Trafford.

Besides, Paul Pogba and Andre Gomes are heavily linked with a move to United, while other clubs are also chasing their signatures. Mourinho will be asked about his opinion of these players and also his thoughts on whether the 20-time English champions will bring in more players to the club in the summer transfer window.

As and when a manager brings in new players, in most cases, he is likely to balance it out by sanctioning the sale of players. The Portuguese boss will also be asked about rumours linking several of the first team players moving away from the club.

The list includes Juan Mata, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Luke Shaw rejected Chelsea to join United and Mourinho called him greedy, when he was in charge at Stamford Bridge. His thoughts on the left-back would throw light on where Shaw stands in his plans for the next season.
