United to start season at disadvantage says Mourinho

The reason Anthony Martial has left Man United's pre-season tour

The reason Anthony Martial has left Man United's pre-season tour

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes' comments to a sports channel have once again been interpreted as criticism of the way his former club are now operating, with specific focus given to the guidance of the team and particularly the style of football that they play under three-time league champion Jose Mourinho.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is willing to let Darmian depart Old Trafford this summer and the Italy global has been linked with several clubs.

The Portuguese stayed silent when pressed to explain why.

Manchester United are in hot pursuit of England's World Cup hero Harry Maguire, but will have to let go of Marcos Rojo to fund a move.

The midfielder, 22, has spent the last two campaigns in Spain, first with Granada and then with Valencia, but has returned to United this summer and is part of the group on a five-game tour of the United States.

"I don't answer to your question", Mourinho told reporters at United's Los Angeles training base ahead of a friendly against AC Milan on Wednesday.

Minella was disappointed but hopeful after her Gstaad breakthrough. "The first set was really tight". I'm glad to be in the final. and I hope I can get to the trophy".

Mourinho, meanwhile, is believed to be interested in signing Croatia's World Cup star Ante Rebic from Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Red Devils are now plotting to move the 12-month clause on Martial's deal so he can not quit on a free next summer. Manchester City and Tottenham are in a similar situation as we are but you can see that some other clubs are in a different situation.

Mourinho's job, of course, is to get the best out of his players.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes says Paul Pogba must use his mind to succeed at Old Trafford.

For all their plaudits and trophies in Italy, Juventus have failed to win a Champions League title since the 1995/96 season. "That's probably what he is happy with, that's where he has been at his best over the years".

The medical results may not come as much of a surprise to the player himself, who, during his unveiling at Juventus on 16 July, said: "I'm here because it's a very big challenge in my career".
