Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder expects Jose Mourinho to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
Sneijder teamed up with Real Madrid coach Mourinho to win the Treble with Inter Milan last season - and he revealed the Special One is desperate to replace Fergie at Old Trafford.
He told the Daily Star Sunday: ''I have had many deep and long conversations with Jose and I would put money on him taking over from Ferguson.
"I know the job he would want is to be Manchester United manager.
"To be honest, he is probably the only coach in the world who is capable of taking over from Alex Ferguson.
''When Ferguson retires, in my mind, it's a deal already done in people's heads. One world-class manager leaves and another one takes over.
''I know Alex Ferguson will have a big say in who takes over from him - and, even though they have their differences, there is a big mutual respect.''
