Jose Mourinho reveals transfer plans amid Rashford and Martial unrest

Jose Mourinho reveals transfer plans amid Rashford and Martial unrest

The Frenchman's Manchester United career looked on the ropes this summer after a poor first season under Jose Mourinho, but the 2017-18 campaign has seen him raise his game.

The Times has reported that the Red Devils have put a five-year deal on the table for the France global to sign amid rumours that Martial is unwilling to commit his future to the Premier League heavyweights.

An incredibly tenuous report from the Mirror curiously stated on the same day that Rashford, despite being Mourinho's most used player at Old Trafford, wanted to leave for the same reason as his French teammate.

The Manchester United manager said in a press conference when asked about Martial's situation: "If I was you I would go why [Romelu] Lukaku plays every match, why [Nemanja] Matic plays every match".

"You always go to the one, the answer is if you want what..."

A stat that many would not know is that Rashford is the player that Mourinho has played the most during his tenure at the club, something that the Englishman was proud to learn too.

Every time Rashford or Martial seem to hit form or be verging on a run of games, Jose Mourinho pulls them back from the fray. Football can not be whittled down to catchy headlines; sacrificing genuine insight in favour of shock value deprives us of being able to have a meaningful connection with the sport online. And a dry answer is only 11 can start the match and we are 22.

United return to action on Sunday when they welcome West Brom to Old Trafford in the Premier League. "But we always want more and we always want to show progression individually and as a team, so the numbers don't really matter as much as the results do to me".

"So probably I would have to reduce and send some away". We have played well against the top teams. "Obviously, to finish fourth, we need four or five points, but to finish second we need much more than that".
