Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho is set for an improved contract at Old Trafford after an outstanding performance for United since his arrival.
According to report from Daily Star, the 54-year old tactician has agreed a deal in principle with the Red Devils’ hierarchy and would put pen to paper in few days time, once the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal is completed.
Report earlier had it that the former Chelsea boss is unsettled in Manchester and wants to leave the club.
This new development is certainly a huge boost for United and would end every rumours linking the tactician away from Old Trafford.
It is claimed that United board lead by Ed Woodward are pleased with the performances of Mourinho since his move to Old Trafford and would want to tie him to a long term deal.
Mourinho joined the Red Devils in 2016 summer after being sacked as Chelsea boss.
During his short spell at Old Trafford, the two times UEFA Champions League winner has achieved great results for United.
He lead the Red Devils to the Europa title, the EFL Cup and the Community shield last season.
Although United have already crashed out of the FA Cup, they are however second on the league table and have also qualified for the knockout stage of the prestigious EUFA Champions League.
The controversial manager earlier states his commitment to Manchester United when he said:
“If you want to ask me directly if I see myself next season at Manchester United, then I say I see myself here.
“As I said when I arrived, I am going to leave when the club wants me to leave because I have no intention to leave at all.
“My intention is to stay and to work and to improve and to bring the club to where the club belongs. And I want to stay. I do not see any reason not to stay.
“I still have a contract. In fact I am in the middle of my contract. I am not in the last couple of months.
“My desire is to stay until the owners and the board is happy with my work. If I am going to sign a new one of course depends on the club but my commitment with the club is total and I want to stay.
“It is just a question of whether the club, the owners, the board, Mr Woodward are happy with my contribution and they want me to stay beyond the end of this contract. But yes I want to stay.”
