Some Newcastle fans react to reports elite manager would consider Magpies role

Newcastle United have been linked with a move for Jose Mourinho.

The Mirror have claimed the two-time Champions League winner would consider becoming first-team manager at St. James’ Park if the club’s proposed takeover by Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan comes to fruition.

The club have been in talks for weeks, and the latest is that Mike Ashley is waiting to see proof of the supposed £350 million funds.

Mourinho, who has been out of work since leaving Manchester United in December, is understood to be aware of Newcastle’s interest.

Apparently he has told close friends that he would seriously consider the gig if Sheikh Khaled wanted to talk.
