Just months after lifting the Premier League trophy, Jose Mourinho was embarrassed by the Stamford Bridge outfit after he was thrown out of his job in December last year.
The Special one had a torrid start to the season with the club and has not landed another job since he was sacked as the manager of Chelsea.
But the reputation for winning titles that the Portuguese carries with him is sure to land him the best jobs in Europe and recent reports suggest that Mourinho might just be the highest paid manager in world football.
Manchester United have not been able to find any positives from this season under Louis van Gaal and it is widely expected that he will be replaced by Jose Mourinho at the end of the season.
And though there is not official agreement between the two parties, it is reported that Manchester United are readying to offer the Portuguese the most lucrative deal till date.
According to the Sun. Mourinho will be offered a mammoth £60 million deal over three years, which also includes bonuses for cups and titles won under the Portuguese boss.
To understand the contract properly, it is £5 million more than what Pep Guardiola is said to accept from Manchester City for the next season. It is more than double of what Louis van Gaal is earning from the club at the moment.
United are currently in the 5th place, just a point away from their local rivals Manchester City in the points table. They are also alive in the FA Cup and face the second leg of the tie against West Ham after the international break.
If the Dutchman can get United to finish in the top-4 spot, and also get the FA Cup, he might just get another season to see off his three year contract at the club.
However, Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes is confident that the gentleman’s agreement between both parties will be honored come the end of the season and that his client will be offered the job to lead the Old Trafford outfit next season.
The number involved in this agreement show that United have recognized that Mourinho is the right man to bring the glory days back to Old Trafford.
Do you think Mourinho will be the right fit for Manchester United?
