Jose Mourinho 'to demand Manchester United backing following PSG approach'

Jose Mourinho 'to demand Manchester United backing following PSG approach'

Mourinho came in at the exact same time as Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, who similarly splash the cash with frequency, and in huge amounts.

So you can make the case on either side about Mourinho has been given/not been given.

The left-back has fallen out of favour with United manager Jose Mourinho. It's going well. Even though I'm a substitute, I play often.

During the Special One's tenure, wages have also increased to £263.5m as the club looks to secure a first Premier League trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson's last season in 2013.

"I don't know where you get these kind of stories but yes, I am happy".

These words are music to United fans.

Mourinho's old friend Antero Henrique could turn out to be the mastermind if the United coach indeed signs up for Paris, sometime in the future or even before the end of his current contract at Old Trafford, which would indeed be very shocking.

And despite his competition with Rashford, Martial has embraced his role on the team and is confident in his abilities.

"I have faith in my qualities, and I think the manager has confidence in me, too, so it's up to me to continue putting in good performances, and if I do that, I think I'll play a bit more".

Almost halfway through his three-year contract, United sit second in the Prem and are all but through to the knockout stages of the Champions League. This attacking trident could potentially terrorize Europe for years to come if they meshed.

Mourinho is now willing to use that link as a bargaining chip to get more funds of his own at United, although he still may have to offload players in order to do that. "I think that will be how things will go well".

Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic and Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale were both closely monitored by United, but the former remained in Italy after United refused to meet Inter's valuation, while the Welshman never seemed particularly eager to swap the Spanish capital for Manchester. And with more playing time, his role and abilities will only increase.
