Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has put pen to paper on a contract extension with the Premier League giants, according to reports on Thursday.

The deal was confirmed on the club’s official website, with a statement that revealed the Portuguese manager has signed a contract that will see him remain at Old Trafford until at least 2020.

He signed a 3-year contract on arrival back in 2016 and earlier this season after a statement where he revealed it was impossible to end his managerial career at United, rumours of a possible summer exit started to swirl in the press with PSG named as his preferred destination.

Despite addressing the issues on a number of occasions in press conferences, the stories persisted citing his continued stay at the prestigious Lowry Hotel as a key hint of his proposed departure.

However, on Thursday, the stories were put to bed finally, as the manager signed a contract extension with Man United.

With the official statements from the club and Chief Executive Ed Woodward stating the club’s satisfaction with their manager’s achievements so far, with his Europa League title win (a first for the club) being on the top of that list.

The manager on his part thanked the club, it’s fans, staff and players for their support and again reaffirmed his commitment to the cause of bringing more trophies to Old Trafford as well as his desire to stay for a long time.
