Jose Mourinho has finally signed a contract with Manchester United ahead of being unveiled as the club’s new manager.
The former Chelsea boss was a strong favourite to succeed Louis van Gaal, who was sacked two days after winning the FA Cup.
And, according to reports, Mourinho put pen-to-paper on a contract with the Red Devils at a London hotel.
The former Chelsea boss is said to have been in negotiations with the Red Devils since Tuesday, and was understood to have agreed both his salary and the length of his contract at Old Trafford.
Talks then went into a third day due to a hold-up regarding image rights, but it is believed that these issues have been resolved.
However, reports confirmed yesterday afternoon that Mourinho has signed his deal.
“He went to a central London hotel, where he met United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and signed the United contract.
“He returned home with documents in his hand and a bottle of wine. It comes on a very special and poignant day for Mourinho. It’s been 12 years since he won the Champions League with Porto,” according to Sky News.
It is likely Mourinho’s first press conference will not take place until after Euro 2016 as is the case with new Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola.
The 53-year-old, who has been out of work since being sacked by the Blues in December, will succeed Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford after the Dutchman saw his two-year tenure ended on Monday.
