According to Sky Sports, and acknowledging Pep Guardiola’s arrival at Manchester City, he said: “We don’t know who will be our new manager yet, but it looks like it’s going to be an interesting derby in Manchester next season.
“The enthusiasm for football in Manchester is great and, if Mourinho does take over at United, I think all of the players want to train under him so it’s going to be quite a special season.”
