Sky Sports News HQ understands no agreement has been reached between Manchester United and Jose Mourinho over the manager's job at Old Trafford.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss is reportedly keen on the post should United look to replace Louis van Gaal in the summer.
Speculation continues to surround Van Gaal's future despite the Dutchman leading United to their first FA Cup final for nine years and with them still in contention for a place in next season's Champions League.
Paris Saint-Germain head coach Laurent Blanc is another linked with the post but Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino is out of the running after agreeing a new five-year deal with the Londoners.
After appointing two managers in the three years since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure, Sky sources understand United's executive chairman Ed Woodward is still mulling over whether Van Gaal will see out the remaining 12 months of his three-year contract.
United currently sit fifth in the table, five points adrift of Manchester City and Arsenal in third and fourth respectively, though they do have a game in hand and those two sides still have to play one another.
Their top-four hopes would suffer a major blow if they lost to title-chasing Leicester on Super Sunday and Van Gaal says his side cannot afford any more slip-ups.
"I think we have to beat Leicester because we are still in the race for the first positions so we have to beat them," Van Gaal said.

"We have to close the gap so the pressure is on us still. We have to win every game that we have to play. City still have to play against Arsenal, though, so one of those shall lose points.
"We are fighting for the qualification of the Champions League and we are still in the FA Cup, so we have to fight for something and we shall do it. Hopefully, we can beat Leicester City."
