Manchester United will offer Jose Mourinho a new five-year deal worth £65 million, reports in England have said. The Portuguese coach won the UEFA Europa League and the EFL Cup for United in his first season at the club, making him the first coach to win at least a trophy in his first season at the club. Manchester United, under the former Chelsea manager, currently sit joint-top of the Premier League with neighbours, Manchester City, and are yet to lose a game in all competitions.
The reports claimed the former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach is ready to sign a new contract at United. In the new deal, it is speculated that he is still expected to earn the same amount, but his incentive package for trophies and league positions will be heavily increased.
Mourinho and his City counter-part, Pep Guardiola, are joint-highest paid managers in world football, earning £250,000-a-week. The former FC Pocto coach has always spoken of his desire to make his stay at Old Trafford the longest of his career. The final details of the new contract are yet to be agreed upon by the two parties.
The 54-year-old takes his side to Anfield this weekend, as United hope to continue their strong form against arch-rivals, Liverpool.
