Mourinho, Utd deal

MADRID: Jose Mourinho has signed a pre-contract agreement with Manchester United with a view to replacing Louis van Gaal as manager giants next season, Spanish newspaper El Pais reported on Sunday. El Pais suggest a deal has been struck that could see the former Chelsea boss make £15 million, even if he doesn’t end up taking charge at Old Trafford. If United don’t complete the deal by May 1, Mourinho will be entitled to £5 million compensation, should negotiations drag on beyond June 1 or break down, the 20-time English champions would owe the Portuguese a further £10 million.
