Jose Mourinho is on the verge of signing a new contract with Manchester United
The Portuguese penned a three-year deal when he replaced Louis van Gaal as United manager in May 2016.
He has recently been linked with the post at Paris Saint-Germain and there has been speculation that Mourinho has not been happy with the club’s transfer dealings.
But Mourinho has always maintained publicly that he sees his long-term future at Old Trafford and has been in negotiations with the club over an extension.
The deal is now close to being finalised, with Mourinho now set to be tied to the club until 2021.
United finished sixth in the Premier League in Mourinho’s debut season in charge but won both the League Cup and Europa League.
They currently sit second in the league table, 12 points adrift of Manchester City, and still harbour hopes of winning the Champions League and FA Cup this season.
Mourinho has faced criticism from some quarters over the supposed defensive style of play at United, but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is happy with the job he is doing and has always been eager to extend his stay.
