He told French TV programme Quotidien that his chances of joining United are "six out of 10", before then stating in L'Equipe that he is "ready to go" and challenge for major honours.

United are now expected to push through their deal to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, who has a £86 million release clause in his contract.

Griezmann is reportedly Mourinho's top transfer target.

"I do not want to talk about Griezmann because that would be disrespectful to his club, Atletico", he told BeIN Sports.

"Ed Woodward has my list, what I want, what I would like for more than two months", Mourinho said after guiding United to a 2-0 victory over Ajax. "So now it's up to him and the owners".

The result means the Red Devils will be playing Champions League football next season, despite only managing a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

However, the 64-year-old, who worked with Van Gaal and Mourinho at Barcelona, admits that the Manchester United manager is mentality much harder compared to the Dutchman. "We didn't. The boys were fantastic, they blocked, they put a wall in front of their eyes and stayed isolated from everything, focused on a football match we played really well and the boys deserve this moment". "I am so happy to see the boys with the crutches with the trophy and now I am on holiday", he added. I can't do it. It enabled Jose Mourinho to go absolutely bats**t and run around the pitch waggling three fingers at everyone to signify the trophy haul of his maiden season (along with the Charity Shield and the League Cup).
