Marca says Nasser Al Khelaifi, PSG's chairman, is desperate to bring Mourinho to Paris, but doesn't want to admit so publicly.
Besides a massive salary, Mourinho will also be granted full control of transfer policy and the hiring and firing of club staff.
"Mourinho is very intelligent and is doing a great job in Madrid. We are happy with (Carlo) Ancelotti and now we do not change the coach," said Al Khelaifi.
Ferguson is showing no signs of planning to retire and so Mourinho would be happy to work two or three years in Paris before eventually making his dream move to Old Trafford.
