The Old Trafford club are said to be delighted with his start and believe his is the right man to guide the side to their 21st league title.
He replaced Louis van Gaal in July after he failed to deliver Champions League football and it is understood that the the Glazer family are also in favour of extending his contract.
While he has stumbled to a mixed start to the season, Mourinho has brought in the right players and has drastically improved the team’s style of play.
Mourinho is still using players left at the club by David Moyes and van Gaal, but there’s no doubt that United will be looking to strengthen the squad if any of his targets become available.
The Portuguese boss is guiding the team in the right direction and reports claim Benfica’s Victor Lindelof will be his latest addition as a deal has already allegedly been agreed between both parties.
United are unbeaten in 10 games, winning seven and the 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday was a third in succession in the Premier League.
It’s all looking up for United under Jose and hopes are they can maintain their impressive form.
