Manchester United ended the 2016-17 season with two major trophies, which was seen as a big step in the right direction, even though they finished sixth on the Premier League table.
The Red Devils have been in talks with Mourinho's representatives, and both parties are understood to be "confident" a new deal until the summer of 2021 will be agreed, reported the Mirror's David McDonnell.
The Portuguese manager will be earning £250,000 per week, and the Red Devils are hoping to make an official announcement in the next ten days.

With reports of Mourinho's contract extension circulating on Wednesday morning, a less well-known clip of the "Special One's" time at Inter has begun to do the rounds on Manchester United forums online. Have your say in the comments section below.
Mourinho has yet to formally sign the new deal but that is expected to be a formality and an announcement from the club will follow once that has happened. "If they want me in some house that I don't like, in some place I don't like, lonely from my assistants, if they want that, I would be a sad guy and a sad guy doesn't work well". The club has also been eager to secure his future as PSG have been rumoured to be tailing the manager.
A clause in the superstar's four-year deal, which is due to meet its deadline by the end of the current campaign, will allow the Old Trafford outfit to gain another 12 months of the celebrated figure's prime services.
What is for sure is that the next fixture between Manchester United and Chelsea is sure to be a cracker.
