After a successful year with Manchester United, boss Jose Mourinho is looking to extend his stay at Old Trafford. But the story doesn’t end here; the Portuguese manager is looking for a big pay rise when he signs a new contract at Manchester United. Jose Mourinho is expecting the club management to take into account his achievements at the club when they offer him an extension on his current contract. The manager wants to the club to be reminded of the feats that red devils have achieved ever since Jose took over from Louis van Gaal.
Jose Mourinho joined Manchester United in the summer of 2016 for a three-year deal. The coach is already halfway through his deal with just a year and a half left. In his first season at Old Trafford, Jose managed to get some glory back from the old days. Under Mourinho, the team won its first every Europa League and the EFL Cup. After the departure of Alex Ferguson, this has been the most promising season for fans at United. Under his predecessor Louis van Gaal, United could manage only a fifth spot in the Premier League while getting knocked out in the Champions League.
As per the current contract, Mourinho’s annual salary is around £15m. The coach now wants some increment and incentives to this that reflect his feats at the club. The club is currently second in the Premier League while top their group in the Champions League. The team hasn’t lost a single game in the Premier League this season and has kept six clean sheets. Manchester United will begin the defense of their EFL Cup next week with an away game at Swansea City. The team is currently going through its most impressive year since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in May 2013.
Mourinho brought reinforcements in the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku which have proved quite instrumental at Old Trafford.
