REVEALED: Mourinho has Man Utd pay-off settled

Jose Mourinho is free to negotiate his next job after being paid his compensation up front by Manchester United in December.

The Daily Mail says United paid up Mourinho's £15million compensation package immediately after he was sacked.

The 55-year-old was dismissed on December 18 after two and a half seasons in charge.

The fact that he received the pay-off on his departure from Old Trafford means he is free to return to management.

A source said, "There are no issues over Jose's contract with Manchester United. Everything has been sorted.

"Jose is able to take on another job right now, but is in no rush. He is very relaxed about it and would be happy to wait until the end of the season if he needs to."
