Jose Mourinho to have Manchester United contract talks

New contract

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is due for contract renewal talks in November with his current deal set to run out in 2019.

Mourinho is into his second season as manager of the Red Devils having been sacked at Chelsea and moving to Old Trafford.

His first season was certainly nothing to write home about in the Premier League as the side finished sixth and were never really in contention for the title.

Though, a Europa League trophy made the season not a total failure, with Champions League the prize for winning the competition.

That sent Man United back to the elite competition which will begin this week as the group stages get underway.

Seemingly, Jose Mourinho has done enough to impress the Manchester United officials and contract renewal talks are set to take place in a couple of months.

Though, the Telegraph’s report make it clear that these would only simply be talks, and that the teams performances up until the end of the season will be crucial in the final conclusion.

Dependent on how the team does for the rest of the season after christmas, Mourinho could get a better deal or no deal at all if it all was to go wrong.

That is certainly not expected but the bottom line is that we will have to wait and see in the summer about the details of a new contract for Mourinho.

For now, the first steps have been taken.

Man United vote against transfer window changes

The biggest discussion on Thursday afternoon was the decision to bring the summer transfer deadline forward to before the season started.

This came after a majority of 14 Premier League clubs voted for the window to close earlier, though there were five clubs who voted against it.

Manchester United were one of them and you can find the rest here.
