Mourinho Set To Sign Massive New Deal At Manchester
The special one, Jose Mourinho, is reportedly ready to sign new £65million five-year Manchester United deal after a brilliant, goal-filled start to Premier League season. Mourinho has impressed club chiefs with transformation of Red Devils and is now set to be rewarded with incredible new contract.
Mourinho is also set to be ready to sign, and make his time at Old Trafford the longest tenure of his career. Mourinho, 54, is the best-paid manager in world football alongside his Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola, as both earn £250,000 a week.
This basic wage will stay about the same but the Portuguese’s incentive package for trophies and league positions is set to sky-rocket.
The final details are still to be agreed, as Mourinho initially signed a three-year deal in the summer of 2016. Despite the United board being convinced they had the right man, both sides were happy with the length of that contract to see how everything progressed.
Mourinho claimed two major honours in his first season, the EFL Cup and Europa League. Also, Manchester United are currently joint top of the Premier League with neighbours City.
Mourinho is determined to not only get the title back to Old Trafford, but put United on top in Europe again, adding to the Champions League titles he won while in charge of Porto and Inter Milan.
Meanwhile, owners, the Glazer family have made it clear they are willing to back him to achieve that, and his relationship with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is also a strong one at the moment.
Woodward has had some difficult years having sacked two managers in David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. Now he is convinced United have the closest thing to Sir Alex Ferguson in the Special One.
