Mourinho doesn’t want to go to PSG (yet), but his agent wants you to know that they’re interested

New, comments

PSG want United’s manager, and Besiktas want United’s star(?) midfielder.

José Mourinho, who wants to stay at Manchester United for “fifteen years,” has already started batted his eyelashes elsewhere after barely fifteen months. Some recent flirting in the media was followed up by some half-assed denials, but the Mourinho-to-PSG rumors refuse to go away.

Just as stories have popped up this week about Mourinho being told that he has to sell players before he can buy any, lo and behold Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in his services have been made public yet again. Truly, a stunning and unforeseeable coincidence.

This time, PSG have supposedly made contact with Mourinho’s representatives to enquire about his potential availability in the summer, only to be knocked back.

It has been made clear that he is committed to Manchester United.

But big-spending PSG have left the offer open should things change.

Just give him that pay raise he wants so that we can stop reading these stories for at least another year and a half.

In other news about potentially soon-to-be-former Manchester United employees, Besiktas are eyeing a move for Marouane Fellaini. Fellaini is out of contract in the summer, and can technically agree a deal with an overseas club as soon as January. Talks between the Belgian midfielder’s representatives and United are said to have stalled, and no doubt Mourinho will want to see one of his most trusted players tied down to a new contract as soon as possible. An official from the Turkish club confirmed that Fellaini has been scouted: “Fellaini is on our list, we have made efforts to sign him but not just him.” Sign him up, Ed.
