Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants the club to show how much they value him by offering him a new deal.
The 54-year-old is halfway through a three-year deal at Old Trafford, though the club have the option of triggering a 12-month extension.
Mourinho raised the opportunity of managing Paris Saint-Germain last month and has been heavily linked with joining the French giants ever since.
The Portuguese boss won the League Cup and Europa League during his first season at Old Trafford but Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side are flying high in the league this term.
Paris Saint-Germain are said to have made tentative enquiries to Jorge Mendes, Mourinho’s agent, and United are warty that Mourinho could be tempted by a move to France.
However, Mourinho is thought to be happy at Old Trafford and wants the club to prove how much they want to keep him by offering him a new deal, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Mourinho is already one of the best paid managers in the world on £15m-a-year but expects the club to hand him a pay rise to extend his stay at the Theatre of Dreams.
United can trigger a 12-month extension in Mourinho’s contract so are under no urgent need to open negotiations but this could exacerbate the Portuguese’s mood.
