Mourinho says Man Utd still in the market for a winger

United in talks with Ibrahimovic about striker staying

"Our ratings have Manchester City and Chelsea sharing favouritism at around US$3.50". Manchester United have been linked to his signature all summer but Inter Milan have proved firm in their asking price for the player.

The 24-year old has had a prolific individual campaign for Everton and anything less than 25 goals for United in his first season with the club under a manager he knows well enough and with better service around him, should be considered failure. I've always liked Marko Arnautovic, he's given West Ham problems whenever he's played against them for Stoke and Javier Hernandez is an extremely exciting addition to the side.

What's more, he still hasn't signed for anyone despite very strong interest from Major League Soccer clubs LA Galaxy and Los Angeles FC.

The Portuguese coach confirmed that the club have suffered no fresh injury concerns during pre-season so with the exception of those players already injured, he has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Crespo of course worked with Mourinho at Chelsea and won a title under the manager, and thinks that the United boss will pull it out of the bag in his second season at Old Trafford. "Can we win it?"

"Twenty-five per cent means one of four. I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight".

Chelsea and Diego Costa's dispute is no nearer to a resolution as the Blues begin their Premier League title defence in an apparent legal wrangle with the exiled striker.


"We're very much ready for the challenges ahead".

However, he picked up a season-ending injury during a Europa League tie against Anderlecht, suffering serious ligament damage in his right knee and eventually being released by United at the end of the campaign.

Do you think the addition of Gareth Bale could win Manchester United the Premier League title? I've been waiting for this opportunity. Newcastle will have no issues staying up, now that they are back.

However, despite missing out on the season's first silverware, it will be Chelsea that will triumph come the end of the season according to Brendan Poots, CEO of Melbourne-based sports hedge fund Priomha Capital, who runs strategies that invests in various sports events including football.

Paper Round's view: Two years Mourinho might just about get away with, but even he can't really believe the club's fans would give him a 10-year grace period?

It was one of the costliest moves in Europe during a summer transfer window that saw United midfielder Paul Pogba replaced as the most expensive player in football by Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for €222 million (S$355 million). And in fact, there has been nothing but initial talks regarding his return to Old Trafford.
