Why Mourinho has not been appointed Manchester United manager yet

Jose Mourinho has already agreed personal terms with Manchester United, but negotiations over a number of image rights are still ongoing.

The Portuguese is expected to be named Louis van Gaal’s successor, but the finer details of his contract need to be resolved before he signs.

According to SkySports, both camps have agreed on the length of Mourinho’s deal and his salary, after discussions between his agent, Jorge Mendes and United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward.


Both Manchester United and Mourinho are tied to several commercial partnerships and have to sort out any potential conflicts about their respective sponsors.

There is common ground in their respective deals with adidas. Mourinho is a global ambassador for the kit manufacturers, who have a 10-year deal with the Old Trafford outfit worth £750m.

An example of conflict however, is Mourinho’s deal with Jaguar, which clashes with United’s seven-year agreement with General Motors, which sees Chevrolet as the club’s shirt sponsor.

Talks are scheduled to continue on Wednesday.
