Jose Mourinho’s reported Manchester United wages will make you weep

More cash for Jos£

Jose Mourinho is determined to get one up on Pep Guardiola.

If the two men clash in next season’s Premier League, it will be absolutely box-office considering the bad blood between both men from their time in La Liga.

Guardiola, of course, will be shacking up at the Etihad from mid-summer when he takes over at Manchester City, while his Portuguese nemesis will be hoping to take over at Manchester United should Louis van Gaal depart from Old Trafford.

Mourinho is by no means wanting for cash, but if he takes over in the red half of Manchester, he would become even more wealthy.


The Sun are reporting that the Portuguese has an offer of a £20m-per-year contract on the table. The proposed three-year deal would net him over £60m, depending on how successful he would be and how many trophies he would capture.

Guardiola is currently on course to be the highest paid manager in the Premier league, with his net package at City set to earn him £15m per annum.

But Mourinho would be sure to use his extra large pay packet to taunt his rival with if he did take over at Old Trafford.
