Man United are thinking about offering Jose Mourinho a contract extensionPublished December 21, 2016
Manchester United are thinking about offering Jose Mourinho a new contract. The Special One only took over at the club in the summer, signing an initial three-year deal. The Guardian reports that United are so happy with the start that he’s made to life at Old Trafford that they want to reward him for this bright beginning with a contract extension.
United are unbeaten in all competitions in their last ten games. The mood around the training ground is said to have lifted. Mourinho is a much more light-hearted character than predecessor Louis van Gaal and players have warmed to him. However, the club are still in sixth place and 13 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.
The proposal of a contract extension seems a bit premature given that he hasn’t achieved anything of note and his current deal has a long way to run. Mourinho is still living in the Lowry Hotel but the club doesn’t have a problem with that. They’ve given him substantial funds to add to his squad in the January transfer window.
