What does "set to" mean? Hello, can anyone tell me what set to means in this sentence? Does it mean someting like "to decide" ? Thanks in advance! With Jose Mourinho set to leave the club this summer, one of los Blancos' young prospects has outlined the necessary credentials for his successor

Yes, it is similar to "to decide" in here. It means Jose will be leaving this club ;) "set to" can also mean begin, start a fight I hope that helped you :) Please comment.

Rene, The word 'set' is an adjective in your sentence meaning "ready" or "prepared" or "likely". -With Jose Mourinho ready to leave the club this summer,.... -Food costs are set to rise throughtout Europe. -The participants are set for an early morning start.
