Jose Mourinho has been linked with a sensational move to Arsenal.
American website One World Sports are reporting that a third party has been used by the Gunners to sound out whether or not The Special One would consider taking over from Arsene Wenger.
Apparently, Mourinho has been asked not to commit to any other clubs – including Manchester United – with doubts surrounding Wenger’s future.
The Frenchman has a contract until 2017, but as we told you several weeks ago, fans have been calling for him to step down after 20 years at the club, with banners unveiled during several matches.
Mourinho and Wenger has endured a strained relationship over the past decade or so, with Mourinho once referring to Wenger as a “specialist in failure”.
But since Wenger last won the Premier League in 2004, Mourinho has won it three times with Chelsea, as well as the Champions League with Inter Milan.
His ability to deliver big trophies could be a big draw for the hierarchy at the Emirates stadium – but what do the fans make of it all?
Well, as you’d probably expect, the rumours has caught a few off guard:
Arsenal fans who wouldn't take Mourinho are mad.
I can't stick the bloke but he'd win trophies and erase the "4th place" mentality.

Mourinho represents everything Arsenal the club, what it stands for doesn't represent.

Mourinho would be a disaster at Arsenal. He was well and truly found out last season. Not just that, his behaviour was disgraceful.

If you want Mourinho at Arsenal please go and support another club. You're not wanted here.

Replace the words "Mourinho at Arsenal" with "Arsenal to win the title" https://t.co/R3n0aPriO3

Ian Wright: "If he [Jose Mourinho] went to Arsenal, it wouldn't be something that I would be against. I can't see it ever happening though."

And by the way, Arsenal will never appoint Jose Mourinho. They love Wenger over there.

What sort of sweet mary jane would you have to smoke to actually think that Mourinho could ever manage Arsenal. Honestly.
