Man Utd transfer news Chelsea star Willian has been linked with a summer switch

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of other signings this summer as they bid to try and challenge for the Premier League title next season.

Jose Mourinho has predicted which teams will make the last 16 of the World Cup - and it's good news for England fans.

This is no more demonstrated in his surprising choosing of Spain to top Group B, with his beloved Portugal having to face a tough battle with Group A winners Uruguay.

Nigeria are drawn in Group D with Argentina, Croatia and debutants Iceland.

France, one of the favourites for the competition, will top their group according to "the Special One", who also believes Australia will finish second in Group C - ahead of Peru and Denmark.

Then, in Group E, the two-time Champions League victor fancies Brazil, but also made the controversial call that Switzerland will finish second ahead of Serbia - his reasoning being that Nemanja Matic needs a holiday.

"Germany has to win", says Mourinho of Group F, followed by Mexico in the runners-up spot.
