José Mourinho refuses to be drawn on Manchester United’s title chances

Jose Mourinho said Paul Pogba thrived because you couldn't lose concentration in World Cup environment

Jose Mourinho said Paul Pogba thrived because you couldn't lose concentration in World Cup environment

Leicester City defender Harry Maguire is preparing to leave for Manchester United, it has been revealed.

The 25-year-old had a hard season at United last season, with Mourinho dropping him at several points' through-out last campaign.

The Red Devils are hopeful of adding a winger to their ranks before the transfer window slams shut on Thursday, August 9 ahead of the new Premier League season.

One thing is for sure, even the words of Pep Guardiola and his complete denial of wanting to sign Miralem Pjanic still hasn't managed to put an end to this persistent rumour...

Mourinho was speaking to the media in Los Angeles before his side's pre-season friendly against AC Milan on Thursday.

Pogba, the £89 million midfielder, was one of France's star performers in their recent World Cup triumph.

"I think the World Cup is the ideal habitat for a player like him to give (their) best. Why?"

South Korea's Foreign Ministry said the North then requested higher level talks with the US-led United Nations Command. The repatriation of U.S. remains was one of the agreements reached during an unprecedented summit between U.S.

"I am happy with the matches, the evolution of the matches but I don't have the players to work".

"So I think it's the flawless environment for a talented player like him to focus, to fully focus on the job".

While Mourinho was subject to severe criticism after splashing £147m (R2.5b) on new arrivals but ending the season trophyless with a rigid style of football.

"So I think a team that is working for six weeks minimum with all the players except one central defender and one striker that can join in the last week and probably be available. that is clear it's a much better situation for them".

Martial has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, especially after his agent spoke out that the French attacker wants to play his football elsewhere.

"So of course against Leicester and Brighton the situation is not fantastic for us. we will have to fight for the points with the players we have available".
