Manchester United are to hold contract talks with Jose Mourinho in November as they look to extend his current deal
Mourinho arrived at Old Trafford 14 months ago and has a successful start to life at the club. In his debut campaign he lifted the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League, despite only managing to finish sixth in the Premier League.
That Europa League win ensured entry into this season’s Champions League and placed them back among Europe’s elite. They have also started the Premier League season in fine form, with a record so far that reads played three, won three, scored 10, conceded nil.
Mourinho recently disputed claims that he is a short term manager, claiming he leaves clubs in a better state than in which he finds them – something that shouldn’t be too hard for him at United following the disastrous tenures of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
The Portuguese has a little over 18 months on his current deal with the Premier League leaders, who are planning talks in November to extend his contract according to The Telegraph.
Mourinho recently claimed he was relaxed about the prospect of a new deal:
“I don’t need a new contract to work to my limits. I don’t have a problem to arrive at the end of my contract and be free to decide what I want to do and the club free to decide what they want to do.”
United look to maintain their 100% start to the campaign this weekend with a tricky fixture against Stoke City
