Jose Mourunho to earn £15 million after agreement with Manchester United


Jose Mourinho is set to take over from Louis Van Gaal as Manchester United coach after singing a pre contract agreement with the Premiere League side.
After his sack at Chelsea in December, the Portuguese has been linked with Manchester United.
Last week, he said he wants to join a new club in the summer after “reading and listening to a few lies” about his future.
According to the Spanish newspaper El País on Saturday night, a source from his agent Jorge Mendes’s company Gestifute has now confirmed the 53-year-old has already signed an agreement to move to Old Trafford last month, although United still reserve the right to change their mind.
“If United do not sign the final contract [with Mourinho] before 1 May, they must pay £5m; if by 1 June he’s still not signed, they shall pay another £10m,” read the report .“
El País says that the clause has been included because stakeholders in Manchester United including Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton, are not convinced that the Portuguese is the right man for the job.
The report also indicates that Real Madrid are also interested in hiring Mourinho to replace Zinedine Zidane but Mourinho would prefer to replace Louis Van Gaal to Manchester United.
