Manchester United are ready to make their manager Jose Mourinho one of the highest paid managers in the world to dispel rumours of him leaving the club. The Portuguese is reportedly being eyed by the big-spending Paris Saint-Germain but latest reports from media outlet Sport claim that United are ready to offer new terms to their gaffer.

The Portuguese is revered as one of the best managers in the world and is consistently ranked alongside contemporaries like Pep Guardiola as one of the most astute tacticians.

He joined United only at the beginning of last season after signing a three-year deal. Midway through his contract, it appears that the Old Trafford hierarchy is happy with the progress under their manager.

Jose won two trophies in his first year – the Europa League and the League Cup. More important of the two is the Europa League as it guaranteed United’s entry into this year’s Champions League despite us finishing outside the top four in the league last season.

Mourinho started this season brightly by seeing his side rake up consistent wins and stay second in the Premier League table. Although bitter rivals Manchester City lead the table with 8 points, there is still belief within the club circles that the difference is not insurmountable.

In the midst of all this, there were rumours that PSG could be looking at Mourinho as a potential replacement of Unai Emery. The current PSG coach has not been able to convince the French heavy spenders that he is the right man to take them to continental glory.

Add to that the fact that Emery pales in comparison to the likes of Cavani and Neymar, PSG are looking at a big-name signing to lead their team. And, Mourinho is reportedly on top of that wish list.

United are believed to have been miffed by this and are willing to offer the 54-year-old Portuguese a huge new deal that would see him earn around £19.5million-a-year which is up to £375,000-a-week.

Another grouse from Jose’s camp is that the spending power of City makes it impossible for him to win the title. United want to address this and are ready to sanction at least three big names to improve the squad.

Do you think Jose deserves this deal or are we jumping the gun?
