Jose Mourinho insists he would love to sign a contract extension at Manchester United.
Despite a mixed start to life at Old Trafford under the Portuguese boss, the Man United hierarchy are said to be delighted with the prospect of extending his stay at the club.
He signed a three-year deal when he succeeded Louis van Gaal in the summer and has ruled out a move to China even though the money does seem attractive.
Speaking about his time at the club, Mourinho claimed he would pen a new agreement without even consulting his advisers.
“They didn’t! And I’m not expecting them to do that. because they gave me a three-year contract,” he said.
“They are being super supportive with me, and always gave me the feeling that three years is not the time I am going to stay here, I always had the feeling that I am going to stay for more time.
“They know that I’m loving it, at every level, I’m loving my job at Manchester United, and they know that if one day they bring the contract, I will sign it, I don’t even need my advisers, I’ll sign because I am loving it.”
Mourinho believes he is too young at to leave the Premier League even if the rewards in China may have caught his eye.
“China money is attractive for everyone, but I love my football at the highest level more. Too young, 53, too young, too many years of football to go to a place like China.
“I want to stay in the most difficult place to win, so I’m in the right place.”
He’s been brilliant at Old Trafford and has introduced an entertaining style of play for fans since he took over from Louis van Gaal.
Despite some criticism for our position in the league, performances in general have improved and I can’t wait to see how far we can go as a team under his guidance.
