Jose Mourinho has set out the requirements it would take for him to extend his contract at Manchester United, according to reports.
Mourinho raised many an eyebrow last week when discussing his future in management.
The Portuguese admitted that he does not expect to finish his career at Old Trafford, and that he has further ambitions in coaching.
It then emerged that he was considering his future at United, and was open to leaving the club due to a lack of ‘funding’. Which is hilarious.
Jamie Jackson of The Guardian now claims that Mourinho will extend his contract, but only if certain terms are met.
‘José Mourinho is minded to sign a new contract at Manchester United but will do so only if he believes the terms reflect his achievements at the club and its current status under him,’ he writes.
Mourinho is also ‘thought to want a marked improvement on his package of salary and incentives’. Why? ‘To reflect the success he has brought and the team’s evolution under his leadership.’
Is this the same Mourinho who led United to a sixth place finish last season? They must put a lot of stock in the Capital One Cup.
