Man Utd to pay Mourinho £20m per year - report

£60m three-year deal alleged to be agreed

Manchester United will pay Jose Mourinho £20m per year to replace Louis Van Gaal as manager this summer, according to The Sun newspaper.

The Portuguese has long been tipped to replace his close friend Van Gaal at Old Trafford and the newspaper claim he will become the highest-paid manager in the world when he does so.

They also state that the former Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Porto boss will earn additional huge sums should be bring success to the club during his stay.

The report read: "While there has been no pre-contract signed between United and Mourinho, there is a verbal agreement in place that he will take over in May. The Portuguese boss and his advisors are therefore convinced it is a done deal, which will see him trouser up to £20m a year."

While The Sun is confident that this 'exclusive' is rock solid, they did run a story five days ago which said that Mourinho's move to Old Trafford had "stalled" leaving "Arsenal ready to pounce" and replace Arsene Wenger with him instead.
