Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has dropped the clearest hint yet that his time at Manchester United may not be as long as some fans hope.
In an interview with French station TF1, Mourinho told Telefoot that he will not finish his career in Manchester. In his second season with the club, Mourinho's contract runs out in 2020.
After the brief reigns of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, Mourinho has brought a sense of stability back to the club. Last season his side won the Europa League and EFL Cup, but the league form was disappointing.
This season the team have performed far better and currently lie in second place. The interview with Telefoot will worry fans though.
