Jose Mourinho tells Manchester United: Sign players or expect hard season

Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward

The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager then listed out what our rivals have done.

Kenyon sees Manchester City's rise as particularly hard for United to deal with but is sure his old side have everything they need to close the gap on last year's runaway champions.

"But I am very happy at Chelsea, I want to stay in the club".

There has even been speculation of a swap deal involving wantaway United forward Anthony Martial and Boateng ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

"He wanted it. He always wanted it", said Mourinho.

United have an abundance of centre-backs - Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones.




Mourinho, according to sources, does not want an unhappy player in his dressing room but Woodward is reluctant to part company with a young player who still has two years on his contract.

Boateng - a half-time substitute for Bayern in their friendly victory over United on Sunday - emerged as an alternative to Harry Maguire who is being priced out of a move by Leicester.

But he was dropped for a crucial Champions League tie with Sevilla in February in favour of 21-year-old Scott McTominay and was substituted during disappointing defeats at Tottenham and Newcastle as City ran away with the title. Perisic's crossing ability was seen as the flawless complement to Lukaku's aerial threat but a move never materialised.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the vastly experienced Germany global.

In an interview with ESPN FC two weeks ago, Mourinho questioned why Pogba's performances in Russian Federation were so much better than his displays for United last season.

José Mourinho said that he would welcome any contributions made by Manchester United players who have recently returned from the World Cup. Negotiating with Daniel Levy, however, is never an easy task for United and it is no different this year as the Spurs chairman reportedly demands in excess of £70m.
