Jose Mourinho’s £36m deal finalised with Man United: Boss celebrates amid £200m budget

Mourinho has been in his scruffs all week while his representatives thrashed out details of the worst-kept secret in football.

But the 53-year-old Portuguese emerged from his London home on Thursday afternoon dressed in black jacket and tie to meet United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward at a hotel.

And after shaking hands on a three-year contract estimated to be worth £12m a season – he returned home with a bottle of wine to celebrate a job he has coveted ever since he ran down the touchline at Old Trafford after his Porto team had knocked United out of the Champions League in 2004.

Significantly, his deal was finalised on the 12th anniversary of Porto’s win over Monaco in the final.
