Jose Mourinho believes he is on course to be named as Manchester United manager in the next few weeks - as a new name has been linked with a role at Old Trafford.

Ken Lawrence reveals that former United defender and current Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc could form a part of United's future.

Former United manager and influential director Alex Ferguson has previously stated that Blanc could be a potential United manager and it seems he may be sounded out for a role at Old Trafford if, as expected, he leaves PSG this summer.

Meanwhile, widespread reports in the Sunday newspapers suggest Mourinho is increasingly confident that he will land the United hot-seat, with voices of dissent against his appointment fading.
