Manchester United are set to extend Jose Mourinho’s contract at the club, after only seven months as their manager.
According to The Sun, the club’s hierarchy will sit down with Mourinho at the end of this season, to discuss a one-year extension to the three-year deal he signed last summer.
United chiefs are reported to be impressed with the former Chelsea manager’s impact at the club, despite the fact they are currently outside the top four on the table.

It is also understood that in addition to the extended year, there could be the option for a further 12 months, effectively tying Mourinho to the club until 2022.
There is however no indication that the Portuguese’s wages will be increased, as he is already one of the highest-paid coaches in the world.
