SUPER agent Jorge Mendes believes that Manchester United should have appointed "genius" Jose Mourinho and instead of Louis van Gaal.

"It's completely impossible to find someone like Sir Alex Ferguson because he's a god, he's a genius and to find a genius is very difficult," said Mendes.

"You have one in England - José Mourinho. Having Sir Alex Ferguson ensures at this moment you have 12 or 15 points more. He's finished his career, but he's someone that makes the difference."

Mendes believes that the opportunity to sign Mourinho is now gone and that he will stay at Stamford Bridge to form a dynasty.

"José will stay for sure. He will be the Sir Alex Ferguson of Chelsea Football Club. He loves the supporters, he loves the city and I think he will stay there for more than 10 years."

Mendes claimed that one of his clients, David De Gea, will stay in Manchester and not sign for Real Madrid in the summer as has been widely predicted.

"He has one year left on his contract and I think that he will stay in Manchester. The player will decide, but he's happy there, at the moment."
