Manchester United Football Club is close to agreeing a new contract with manager Jose Mourinho, the BBC reports.
Talks between the boss and the club have progressed recently, and with his current deal expiring in 2019, it made sense to get discussions underway about the possibility of him extending his stay.
The report reckons that the self-proclaimed Special One will put pen to paper on a new contract, which will run until summer 2021.
If Mourinho makes it past the current season, he’ll be the longest-serving manager post-Sir Alex Ferguson, which tells you everything you need to know about the lack of stability over the last five years.
Mourinho is 100% the correct man for the job. The Portuguese coach is a win-at-all-costs man and that fits Manchester United’s mantra perfectly.
He will get it right, just give him time and I’ve no doubt that he’ll deliver a title or two before moving elsewhere. I’m just thrilled that the club is giving him the backing he deserves, and no doubt this’ll be a huge confidence booster for him as we enter the business end of the season.
