JOSE MOURINHO'S first game in charge of Manchester United could come against Chelsea according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies have slashed the odds of Mourinho stepping into the Old Trafford dugout against his old side on December 28th to just 7/2 (from 10/1) as the gamble on The Special One making the move north intensifies.
United's title odds have also already shortened on the back of the rumour, with 20/1 offered that they win the league under Mourinho this season.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "It looks like a case of when and not if The Special One takes charge at Old Trafford. Fans are convinced he is making the move and the odds of his first game being against Chelsea are shortening by the hour."
He added: "United's title price is already coming under pressure as punters put full faith in Mourinho's Midas Touch returning at Old Trafford."
