Manchester United will offer Jose Mourinho a new and improved five-year deal at the end of the season and will let him spend as per his plans – reports the Sun.
The former Porto, Chelsea, Inter and Real Madrid boss joined the Red Devils after agreeing a three-year contract – with an option to extend it to further 12 months for a reported fee of worth £10 per annum and now the English news outlet has claimed that Glazers are ready to offer him a new bumper contract.
The new contract will include a potential hype of around £2M per year and the board will also ensure that he won’t fall short of revenue during his stay. The Portuguese tactician spent a bucket load of cash past summer to bring in the likes of Bailly(£31M), Pogba(£89.3M) and Mkhitaryan (£27M) and all the signings have been performing brilliant lately.
Furthermore, even though the rumours have linked many players with a move to Old Trafford, the manager hinted that the coming summer will be soft.
“We prefer to bring two, three or four players, players that feel an idea, a football we try to play, that can improve our squad. Mourinho was quoted by the Daily Mirror.
“We’re not interested in signing six or seven or selling six or seven, we’re not going to play this game.
“We’re stable, so we think our market in the summer will be soft, will be natural, some players to leave, some players to come, but in a very natural way, so I think the word Ed used was a good one.”
To be specific here, Antoine Griezmann is the reported target for the Red Devils and they are expected to go all out in the summer. Besides the Frenchman, they are also expected to make a move for Benfica’s Victor Lindelof and if the reports are to be believed, then they have already penned down a pre-contract agreement with the player.
United have spent a crazy capital since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson – £500M to be specific – yet the success has been very limited, but with now Mourinho at helm, miraculous results are expected.
