After the Europa League win over Ajax this week Mourinho handed the summer transfer baton to Woodward as he left for his summer holidays.

“Ed Woodward knows since March who I want, what I want how much I want.

“He knows everything since March. Now it is for him to work, he can have his holiday in August. In August I am working,” said Mourinho yesterday at the Monaco GP.

The tabloid have been banging the Mourinho contract extension drum since February, while as early as December 2016 the Guardian suggested a new deal could be offered  to Mourinho.
