Jose Mourinho was fired by Chelsea less than two weeks ago, but rival Manchester United is already claiming the legendary coach.
Manchester United is hosting The Blues at Old Trafford Monday. Outside the stadium, an enterprising vendor is selling Red Devils scarves with Mourinho's face imprinted.

Current United boss Louis van Gaal has struggled in his year and a half in Manchester by the club's high standards. United finished fourth in the Premier League in 2014-15 and is currently sixth in the table this season. There have been soft murmurs about a potential Mourinho-to-United scenario, but no serious details are present.
Then again, the scarves could also be United trolling Chelsea for Mourinho's poor performance this season. Chelsea, the defending Premier League champs, are 15th in the table. Earlier this season, Florida State fans made shirts with University of Miami coach Al Golden's name on them (then he got fired).
