Jorge Mendes statement: Jose Mourinho is ‘fully committed’ to Manchester United

Jose Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes has taken the unusual step of releasing a statement reaffirming his commitment to Manchester United. 

“There have been more rumours of Jose Mourinho leaving Manchester United,” said Mendes, who also represents a number of high-profile players including Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It’s totally untrue. José is very happy at the club and the club is very happy with him. He has a long-term contract with Manchester United and is fully committed to the club in building a solid winning project.”

Mourinho’s side are winless in four games, eight points off the Champions League places and 18 behind cross-town rivals City heading to the halfway point this season. 

The Sun reported on Friday that United were prepared to pay £40m to hire Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham and could get out of Mourinho’s contract cheaper should he fail to return the Old Trafford club to the Champions League.
