Mourinho wants big pay rise to sign new Manchester United contract

Mourinho wants big pay rise to sign new Manchester United contractManchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is ready to sign a new contract with the club. But he will only do so, if the Red Devils offer him terms which he believes reflect his achievements at the club and their current status under him.

Mourinho is almost halfway through the three-year deal he agreed in the summer of 2016.

In his first season at Old Trafford, the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss won two trophies – the EFL Cup and Europa League.

Winning the Europa saw United return to the Champions League, after his predecessor, Louis van Gaal, could guide the team only to fifth place.

Mourinho earns around £15m a year, but is thought to want a marked improvement on his package of salary and incentives, to reflect the achievement he has brought and the team’s evolution under him.

On Sunday, Mourinho said United would not be his last job and praised Paris Saint-Germain, in what may have been part of a contract renegotiation strategy.

Argentina striker Sergio Aguero was taken to a hospital for checks after he fainted during halftime of the team's friendly match against Nigeria on Tuesday. The Argentine Football Association said on its Twitter account that the Manchester City forward "had a blackout and was taken (to hospital) so routine examinations were made only as a precaution." The AFA gave no further details on the incident, which occurred after Aguero had scored in the first half. Argentine media published pictures of Aguero walking out of the stadium. In the match, an Argentina side without Lionel Messi squandered a two-goal lead and slipped to a shock 4-2 defeat. Ever Banega and Aguero gave Argentina the lead, with Aguero's Manchester City teammate Kelechi Iheanacho pulling a goal back for Nigeria just before halftime with a free kick. Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi scored twice and Brian Idowu also found the net for Nigeria in the second half. Argentina defender Javier Mascherano said: "Playing against a team of such physical strength you pay the price. They walked all over us... and when we tried to get back on the match we couldn't." Argentina only secured its spot in the next World Cup in the last round of South American qualifiers and has not delivered convincing performances without Messi. AP
