Manchester United have offered Sir Alex Ferguson a lucrative new contract that would make him the highest paid manager in the history of the Premier League, according to goal.com.
Ferguson announced on Tuesday that he plans to manage United for a further three years and the Manchester club are willing to reward him with an enhanced salary of £6.5m per year.
The Scot has been on a one-year rolling contract since 2004, but the new contract would see Ferguson earn a 60 per cent pay rise. Ferguson could also earn a bonus of £1m if he guided United to a clean sweep of trophies.
The contract would move Ferguson ahead of Arsene Wenger as the league’s highest paid manager.
