Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho could soon move out of his hotel life as he is considering shifting to one of Manchester’s most luxurious penthouses.
However, ‘The Special One’ would have to wait until the next few months as the luxurious apartment is not available until mid-January.
Earlier, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has called life in Manchester ‘a disaster’ as the new Red Devils boss continues his struggles both on and off the pitch.
Jose had said that he is not enjoying living out of a suitcase as he continues to live at the ultra-luxurious Lowry Hotel in the heart of Manchester, while his family continues to live in London.
His wife Matilde Faria and children Matilde and Jose Mourinho Jr (who plays for Fulham youth team) still lives at their luxurious central-London house.
It was also reported that the 53-year-old was considering buying a flat, but Jose had said that he was not sure.
However, recent reports claim that Mourinho has now convinced his wife to come over and stay with him for some days every week, till the time they shift into a new apartment.
Earlier, Mourinho went on a house-hunting spree and had viewed ten luxurious mansions mansions in and around the footballers’ Cheshire districts of Alderley Edge, Prestbury, Bowdon and Hale, before rejecting all the options. He was also branded as the The Stubborn One behind his back and now the club bosses believe that the thre-bedroom penthouse is the perfect choice for the Portuguese manager.
A source close to the club told SunSport: “It has all been very frustrating – however there was no pressure on Jose to move out of the hotel quickly.”
“But it now appears he could be close to getting a place of his own – a stunning penthouse in the city centre.”
“It ticks all the boxes for him so we are hoping that his wife will also take to it – there is no way he will be able to move her up permanently from London, which she adores, but at least she can come and stay with him for days on ends.”
“And there are three bedrooms as well so the kids can visit if they want to, although there is a feeling we shan’t be seeing too much of them.”
The source added: “It has been a difficult time on the personal front for Jose – he has been telling people that life in London and life in Manchester is akin to living in two different countries!”
“People at the club are praying that a more settled private life will make him the Happy One again.”
The rent of the penthouse has been reported to be in the range of £5,000 a month. Apart from a plethora of luxurious amenities, the penthouse offers a magnificent panoramic view across the city.
