Jose Mourinho and Manchester United are set to enter a second day of talks, with the Portuguese expected to become the club’s next manager this week.
According to Sky Sports News, the length of Mourinho’s contract and his salary have both been settled upon and only issues regarding image rights are left to be negotiated.
Dutchman Louis van Gaal, 64, was sacked as United boss on Monday, two days after winning the FA Cup at Wembley.
He led United to fifth place in the Premier League but failed to get them past the Champions League group stages.
The former Netherlands boss was also criticised for his lack of attacking football, with United only scoring 49 goals in the top flight.
