Jose Mourinho has signed a new contract with Manchester United.
Following months of speculation surrounding his future, along with some strong links to Paris Saint-Germain, the Special One has finally ended up committing his future to the Red Devils.
The Portuguese has officially penned down a brand new deal, which will see him stay at the Old Trafford outfit until at least 2020, with an option to extend it further for a year.

After the confirmation of the deal, Mourinho told the club’s official website: “I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager.
“I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to Mr Woodward for the recognition of my hard work and dedication. I am delighted they feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future.
“We have set very high standards – winning three trophies in one season – but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for. We are creating the conditions for a brilliant and successful future for Manchester United.
“My thanks, of course, go to my staff and to my players; without their empathy and friendship this wouldn’t be possible. I love my players and it is a pleasure to know that we are going to be together for at least the next three years.
“And I cannot finish without thanking the fans for their support and for making me feel at home so quickly. I repeat, to be Manchester United manager is an honour every day and I am really happy.”
Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, also spoke about the deal, by adding: “Jose has already achieved a great deal as Manchester United manager and I am delighted that he has agreed to extend his commitment until at least 2020.
“His work rate and professionalism are exceptional and he has embraced the club’s desire to promote top quality young players to the first team. He has brought an energy and a sense of purpose to everything that he does and I am sure that will continue to bring results for the fans and the club.”
Having already won the Community Shield, the EFL Cup, and the Europa League with the Mancunian giants in his debut season, Mourinho will now look to make full use of his stable future at the club to win every other available title with his current star-studded squad.
