SunSport understands he will not receive any more money for increasing the length of his contract, but will get bonuses for success. "We are not going to play this game", he said. "They love having him here at the moment". This is why Manchester United aren't now in the top four, despite playing some of the best attacking football in the division.
"He is ready, his mentality has changed and his approach has changed".
Mourinho has already planned out his summer spending, and is expected to splash out around £150m to £200m.
Antoine Griezmann, the Atletico Madrid forward who has a release clause of £85.5 million, is top of Mourinho's shopping list, while Victor Lindelof, the Benfica defender, and the Monaco midfielder Tiemoué Bakayoko are also under consideration.
The Sun claim that United are interested in Spurs duo Kyle Walker and Rose, and the latter would be an excellent addition at left-back. Even though United are on this unbeaten run they're not great.
And that backing is now being replicated by Mourinho after the Portuguese brought him back into the side in November. He's strong in that sense but, as long as you're doing what he wants, then I'm sure you'll be fine. In Friday's news conference, Mourinho hadn't forgotten the foul that referee Michael Oliver missed in the lead up to the opening goal. I like them a lot, they like me a lot.
While Oscar in particular has received criticism for leaving one of Europe's major leagues at just 25, Willian says he can understand the decision and does not rule out eventually making the move himself, although he insists it would be a hard decision having fallen in love with London. But those three certainly gave me confidence. Thankfully I just concentrated and trained hard and maybe that's why I'm still here.
"We will be very, very, very direct, so it is one of the clubs that I am not anxious (about) at all because we are friends".
The hosts have been held to a draw in each of their last two league matches on home turf, and you can get odds of 5/1 (6.00) on them being forced to settle for a single point yet again. You go into training and you just now when someone likes you, and someone doesn't.
Robert Madley had some high card counts early in the season but his Premier League matches have been relatively calm in recent weeks with only one of the last five going over 30 bookings points.
