Manchester United paid Mourinho a staggering £4million to reject the advances of any club looking to his services.
Mourinho is expected to be given £200m to spend on new players when he signs a five-year contract worth £75m.
The manager was fired by Chelsea in December 2015, after his side failed to mount a serious title defense.
Mourinho has coached the likes of FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid in a career that has seen him lift the Champions League twice.
