Jose Mourinho has revealed that he will be back in management in July despite the uncertainty over his transfer to Manchester United. The Red Devils are yet to come to an agreement on Louis van Gaal's future and are likely to make a call after the end of the season depending on whether United manages to finish in the top four and lift the FA Cup trophy where they have been pitted against Crystal Palace at Wembley on Saturday, 21 May.
Mourinho has previously expressed his desire to return to the Premier League since his family is housed in England but United are currently the only team capable of providing him with the challenge he deserves with his credentials. The Portuguese man was relieved of his services from Chelsea in December 2015 when he failed to stop their downward spiral, having won the league the season before.
The 53-year-old has been out of work since but believes that the time is right for him to move back into management and has given clubs across Europe until 30 June to secure his services. It was reported that Mourinho has a gentleman's agreement with United for the role after the season but the management are still pondering over allowing the Dutchman to complete his contract.
"Of course I miss it. In July I will be back. So we are in May. May to July is nothing. I keep enjoying my life, which I'm doing, keep enjoying my family. But in July I will be back," Mourinho said, as quoted by the Mirror.
Meanwhile, United go into the final game of their season knowing that they still have a chance to confirm their position in the top four despite their latest defeat to West Ham. The Red Devils have to win their game against Bournemouth while Manchester City have to slip up against Swansea City, who have been in brilliant form over the last few games.
