Embattled Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal suffered a fresh blow on Monday when the English Premier League club's share price dipped to its lowest level in more than three years.

Frank Lampard has no doubt that Jose Mourinho would be a success at Manchester United.

Sources close to the former Chelsea boss Mourinho have claimed it is nearly a "done deal" that he will succeed Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford in the summer.

"If you are the current manager of Manchester United, or any football club and your name is being touted about getting the sack and about people getting put in, it's definitely not nice to hear", Ferdinand said.

Jose Mourinho's done deal is subject to a condition according to reports from the Manchester Evening News. And if the Portuguese joins United next season, it will be the world's most expensive football managerial rivalry in the world's most expensive league.

Mourinho, who has never made any secret of his ambition to manage United, outlined his intentions for the squad during a meeting with Woodward.

United are fifth in the Premier League, six points behind neighbours City with 13 games left to play.

Also, despite links to Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino, the Daily Mail says Mourinho has agreed to become United's new boss.

Lampard told This Morning: "I don't know where he will end up. Then I can announce your name also", he added.

And while nothing should be believed before an official statement comes out, it's understood that Mourinho has identified the first signing he wants to make when he likely takes the reins at Old Trafford.
