Jose Mourinho could replace Louis van Gaal at Man United - Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard has predicted Jose Mourinho would be a success at Old Trafford, if Manchester United are looking for a new boss.

Chelsea's record goal scorer suggested Louis van Gaal was looking to leave United this summer, but that appears to not be the case as the Dutchman has repeatedly scoffed at media speculation over his future and is under contract for another year.

Lampard, who worked under Mourinho during the Portuguese manager's two spells at Stamford Bridge, was asked by ITV's This Morning where his former boss might end up next following his departure from Chelsea in December.

Lampard said: "I don't know. I haven't spoken to him much. I spoke to him briefly when he left Chelsea.

Frank Lampard enjoyed much success with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

"There's a bit of a merry-go-round of managers at the minute and I think he'll probably sit tight for a while and then will end up at a big club somewhere, because he's a great manager."

Asked whether that big club might be United, Lampard added: "I think it's a possibility.

"If Louis van Gaal goes on, which I think he's said he's going to leave at the end of the season at the latest, I think Mourinho's the type of manager that will certainly come into their thinking.

"He could certainly handle a club like that, that's what he's about."
