The agent for Jose Mourinho claims Manchester United is "very happy" with his client.

United are currently eighth in the table and already 18 points behind Manchester City. United also sits eight points out of the top-4.

"There have been more rumors of Jose Mourinho leaving Manchester United," said Jorge Mendes. "It's totally untrue. Jose is very happy at the club and the club is very happy with him. He has a long-term contract with Manchester United and is fully committed to the club in building a solid winning project."

Mendes is not known for speaking publicly about clients but his statement issued via his agency Gestifute comes on the same day as reports that United have lined up Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino to take over in the summer.
