JOSE MOURINHO will be given £300m to spend on new signings when he becomes the Manchester United boss.
United will announce Mourinho as their next manager within the next two weeks after he signed a deal to replace Louis van Gaal.
The club had hoped to wait until the end of the season to make an announcement.
But they have been forced to bring it forward after news of Mourinho’s signing the contract leaked out in his native Portugal.
United bosses reckon Mourinho is the only boss in world football who can take on Pep Guardiola, who will take charge of neighbours Manchester City.
And Starsport understand Old Trafford top brass have promised Mourinho a massive war chest of up to £300m to rebuild the team.
That could include Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is open to a move to United but doesn’t want to play under Van Gaal.
The two previously have worked together at Inter Milan.
