Manchester United set to reward Mourhino with 5 year deal

According to the Sunday press, Jose Mourhino will be offered a new five-year deal this summer to oversee the £1BN transfor­ma­tion of Manchester United.

The Special One is already on a three – year contract with a further twelve month option on United’s part worth £10m per annum but the United hierarchy look set to hand Mourhinoa new deal as he looks to secure a dynasty at United

He took over last summer where made a handful of signings that included Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan

But after holding talks with Old Trafford owners the Glazers executive vice chairman Ed Woodward is now putting a new 'mega – package' together according to The Sun

Mourinho’s pay packet will be bumped up by a further £2M per year with the aim of keeping him until 2022 at least.

But he will also be promised an unpre­ced­ented amount of cash to ensure he brings in the players who can make United Europe’s No 1 again.

The 53 year old has already spent almost £150M on world record buy Paul Pogba (£89.3M), Eric Bailly (£31M), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£27M) and free transfer Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But he also has plans to sign Athletic Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann who is expected to cost £100M.
