Spanish daily El Confidencial have today revealed details of Jose Mourinho’s impending contract to become the new manager of Manchester United.
Chatter that the Special One will take over at Old Trafford has dominated much of the English press this morning too.
No less than three backpages on Wednesday run with the same claim: Jose Mourinho has told friends that he is the new Manchester United boss.
Sacked by Chelsea earlier this season, reports of Mourinho taking over from Louis van Gaal at the end of the season are rife in Portugal, Italy, Spain and now England.
According to El Confidencial, while the deal to bring Mourinho to Manchester is not yet finalised, Jose’s agent Jorge Mendes and his team of lawyers are currently closing a “maze of clauses” with the Red Devils.
The framework of the agreement is that Mourinho will join United until 2019, while the coach will earn 20 million euros a season at the Theatre of Dreams.
