      Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has agreed personal terms with Manchester United, according to reports.

      Lawyers for both parties are still in negotiations over a number of image rights issues, which must be resolved before a contract can be signed.

      The length of Mourinho's contract and his salary have now been agreed after positive talks between United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Mourinho's agent, Jorge Mendes.

      However, dialogue is ongoing regarding the image rights conflicts, and it remains unclear whether or not these issues will be concluded in time for Mourinho to put pen to paper on his contract on Wednesday.

      Both United and Mourinho are tied to numerous commercial partnerships, and must pay careful consideration to the pre-existing commitments to their respective sponsors when Mourinho becomes United's manager.

      There is common ground for Mourinho and United in their respective deals with adidas. The incoming United manager is a global ambassador for the kit suppliers, whose £750m, 10-year deal with United, came into effect in 2015.
