Manchester United could be without a manager by the end of Thursday as crunch talks are set to take place, if reports are to be believed.
More damaging claims were made about the future of several United stars should Mourinho stay on as manager, reports have continued to grow that the club are considering an approach to appoint former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane as his successor.
Now, the Express are claiming that Ed Woodward is “stalling on the axe”, but that the pair will “sit down for showdown talks today”.
In addition, they state that “the worst case scenario would see the club looking for another new manager” with Mourinho feeling “entitled” to backing in the transfer market.
“He wanted five signings, but the club delivered just three. Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant,” the report continues, before adding that Mourinho “wants two defenders as a show of faith”.
