According to The Independent, Everton coach David Moyes will be unveiled as early as tomorrow as the successor to Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. Ferguson shocked the world on Wednesday morning by announcing that he would step down at the end of the season after 27 years at the helm of the Old Trafford club. The Times also reported that Moyes would be named United’s next manager within the next 24 hours.
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho had also been floated as a possible successor to Ferguson, but The Independent’s sources at the club are convinced the Portuguese is already heading back to Chelsea with a deal in place. The report also claims that Ferguson will not hold a press conference on Friday ahead of Sunday’s home game against Swansea City, which will be his last.
Moyes will arrive at Old Trafford for nothing, as his contract with Everton expires at the end of the season.
