Jose Mourinho’s agent has described claims the Portuguese has written to Manchester United in a bid to become their next manager as “absolutely ridiculous and totally absurd”.
A report in the Independent on Sunday suggested that the former Chelsea boss had written a six-page letter outlining why he would be the right man to replace Louis van Gaal, as and when he leaves Old Trafford.
United declined to respond to the reports on Saturday night, but in a statement on Sunday morning, Jorge Mendes categorically denied them.
He wrote on www.gestifute.com: “It does not occur to anyone that a coach like Jose Mourinho can write letters to clubs offering their services. It is absolutely ridiculous and totally absurd.”
