NPL Sports, 26th December: Manchester United are stalling on Jose Mourinho’s contract – and that could impact on his transfer dealings in January according to Express Sport news.
Mourinho is under increasing pressure to translate the funds he spent in the summer into results on the pitch.
Manchester United are 13 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League, with their rivals having already all-but wrapped up the title.
United were also dumped out of the EFL Cup to Bristol City last week.
And the Mirror claim the Portuguese boss is struggling to convince United’s top brass that he deserves a new contract midway through his current three-year one.
And that could spell disaster in the transfer window next month if the United board do not have faith in their man.
