Jose Mourinho scarves are on sale outside Old Trafford today, with Manchester United fans trying to cash in on what they are hoping will be the imminent arrival of the former Chelsea boss.

Mourinho, was sacked by Chelsea earlier this month, has emerged as a strong contender to replace under-pressure United manager Louis van Gaal.

It remains to be seen whether too many United fans will be tempted to buy a Mourinho scarf ahead of his possible arrival at Old Trafford, but at least one fan is keen to promote his claims to the job.

United great Paul Scholes was also critical of a supporter trying to sell Jose Mourinho scarves outside Old Trafford.

Scholes has been an outspoken critic of Van Gaal in recent months, but he has told BT Sport that he should be given more time to turn his team around.
