Mourinho will be at United come what may, and his season surely hinges on the result on Saturday.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea and Jose Mourinho's Manchester United meet on Saturday in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

There is speculation that Javier Zanetti, who played under Mourinho at Inter Milan, is one of the names in frame.

"I think the first trophy sets you off".

However, he will be hoping for a positive reaction from his players at Wembley this weekend.

"This was fantastic and in all the four years since I joined Chelsea now they will always stay with me". Indeed no player has made more starts for the club this season.

"He wants to win, that's that".

Against that troubled backdrop, it would be a fitting coda to Conte's woes if United manager Jose Mourinho was the man to shove his rival towards the exit door.

During the course of an historic campaign, Guardiola's Blues also set records for consecutive wins (18), total games won (32) and goal difference (+79), earning praise from many observers for their lovely football philosophy. For me, as a football lover not a manager, that's entertaining. The Daily Express says Conte will have a selection decision to make between strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata.

"In that moment, we understood that managers don't just choose the starting XI". Overall, it was an underwhelming season for the Red Devils as they never looked like challenging for the league table.

"It is about your relationships with your players, staff, doctors and media. They've got quality players and so have we".

The Portuguese boss led United to a second-placed league finish this season, while Conte has fared worse, with defending champions Chelsea ending the campaign in fifth and failing to qualify for the Champions League.

Mourinho won the FA Cup with Chelsea in 2007 when his old club beat his current club after extra time thanks to Didier Drogba's winning goal.

Man Utd are closing in on a summer move for a new full-back as we round-up the latest rumours on Friday, May 18.

Mourinho said he is unsure if United's top scorer with 27 goals will play due to an ankle injury.

Manchester City have announced that manager Pep Guardiola has signed a contract extension keeping him at the club until 2021.

No matter who is in charge of Chelsea next season, Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas said the only thing that counted now was to make sure the club ended a disappointing season on a high. "There are no doubts that, if he's even 90, 80 or 70 per cent fit, he'll give it a go".
