Jose Mourinho has agreed personal terms with Manchester United
The Portuguese’s agent, Jorge Mendes, and United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, are meeting in London for face-to-face talks over the remaining unresolved issues in contract negotiations.
These include a number of image rights issues, which must be resolved before a contract can be signed, such as Mourinho’s commercial deal with Jaguar – a conflict of interest due to United’s sponsorship with car-maker Chevrolet.
SSNHQ understands the length of Mourinho’s contract and his salary have been agreed after positive talks between Woodward and Mendes via telephone and email.
However, dialogue is set to continue in person regarding the image rights conflicts, and it remains unclear whether or not these issues will be concluded in time for Mourinho to put pen to paper on his contract on Wednesday.

Both United and Mourinho are tied to numerous commercial partnerships, and must pay careful consideration to the pre-existing commitments to their respective sponsors when Mourinho becomes United’s manager.
There is common ground for Mourinho and United in their respective deals with Adidas. The incoming United manager is a global ambassador for the kit suppliers, whose £750m, 10-year deal with United, came into effect in 2015.
