There is a Mourinho feel to the squad now that he has had the time to restructure the personnel since his appointment to the dugout in the summer of 2016, and if they do indeed go on to win the league of the Champions League there would be no-one begrudge the Portuguese an increase in salary.

In his past nine games away to a "big six" rival in the Premier League, his team have not won.

Manchester United are looking to extend Phil Jones' contract after a run of fantastic performances this season had the club sweating over his future, with both parties confident that a deal to commit his future to Old Trafford can be agreed, according to ESPN.


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been at the club for just over one season and is reportedly seeking a pay rise if he is to stay on at Old Trafford.

Mourinho has come in for criticism after deploying defensive tactics in order to get a point against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

If anything, after the past few decades, the demand for winning in style is far greater at United, which is one reason why Mourinho never seemed the most natural heir to the traditions of Alex Ferguson. Manchester City have got six points from matches against Chelsea and Liverpool.


Barnes has accused Mourinho of hypocrisy as he feels that the Red Devils also played for a draw against Jurgen Klopp's team. "He's always done it and I expected it before the game", he told Sky Sports. They barely even acknowledged there was a door. I played there for four years. The City manager's approach to these big games is very different: dominate possession, force the opposition back and create chances.

The striker has room to improve, but he does not deserve too much criticism.

The BBC pundit took his team of the week column as an opportunity to attack Mourinho's tactics in one of United's biggest games of the season in the Premier League.
