Man United target turns down overtures from both Italy and China

Jose Mourinho has rejected advances from other clubs in order to seal a move to Manchester United, report the Independent.

The Portuguese coach is hotly tipped to replace Louis van Gaal at the helm at the end of the season amid the Red Devils’ continued struggles.

He has been out of work since he was relieved of his duties at Stamford Bridge in mid-December.

While no agreement has yet been reached, the 53-year old is understood to be confident in landing the post at Old Trafford.

So much so that the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss has reportedly turned down offers from Italy and China.

Having taken Inter Milan to an unprecedented treble in 2010, including a Champions League win, he is well thought of in Italy.

Roma are believed to have offered him a quick-fire return to management upon his sacking by Chelsea, which he is said to have rejected.
