Play Anthony Martial With Marcus Rashford And Allow Paul Pogba To Shine… Five Things Jose Mourinho Must Do To Win Over Manchester United Fans



AFTER crashing out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage, Jose Mourinho defended Manchester United’s performance against Sevilla in bizarre fashion.

The Old Trafford chief claimed: “I don’t want to make a drama of it, we don’t have time we have a match on Saturday.

“We have no time to be sad for more than 24 hours. That’s football, it is not the end of the world.

“I sit in this chair twice in the Champions League and knock Manchester United out with Porto and Real Madrid so is not something new for the club.”

These comments haven’t gone down too well with many United fans.

Our friends at Football Whispers have suggested five things Mourinho needs to do to get back into the Old Trafford faithful’s good books.

Play Martial and Rashford

The signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January was hailed as a masterstroke for United, acquiring one of the Premier League’s best players in exchange for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who had fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

But the Chilean forward has struggled to find his best form thus far, with only one goal to his name for the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, the former Barcelona star’s arrival has seen Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial marginalised.

With a proud tradition of giving chances to young players and developing superstars in-house, Mourinho must put more faith in his two most gifted young attackers.

Switch to 4-3-3

Throughout his time in charge of United Mourinho has favoured a 4-2-3-1 formation, utilising a system similar to the one that won him a Premier League title in his second spell with Chelsea.

However, this formation doesn’t appear to suit many of United’s best players, with £89m midfielder Paul Pogba the most affected.

The Frenchman is uncomfortable in a deep midfield two and would be much happier in his preferred spot on the left of a trio.

Where Does Toby Alderweireld’s Future Lie… Still At Tottenham Or One Of Psg, Chelsea, Manchester United Or Barcelona?




TOBY ALDERWEIRELD contract situation at Tottenham Hotspur is somewhat of a mess, and it’s largely because of Tottenham’s own doing.

Now the Belgian’s future in North London is in serious doubt.

PA:Press Association Toby Alderweireld looks set to leave Tottenham in the summer window

The two parties are yet to agree a new deal with the centre-back’s existing contract coming to an end in 2019.

Spurs have the option of triggering a one-year extension, however, that would see a £25million release clause activated next summer.

Clubs could then prise Alderweireld away for a bargain fee, as long as the deal was completed with a fortnight of the transfer window remaining.

Reports in Belgium claim the breakdown in talks mean Spurs are resigned to letting him leave this summer.

They will demand around £44million but where could he head next?

We asked our friends at Football Whispers to take a look at Alderweireld’s potential next destination.

Man United

The Red Devils have been long-term admirers of the Belgium defender and were linked with a move last summer.

One of Jose Mourinho’s main priorities when this season ends is to bring in a new centre-back to play next to Eric Bailly.

Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are all out of contract in 2019 and could be moved on.

In Alderweireld the Portuguese would have one of the Premier League’s best defenders; the 29-year-old could slot in alongside the Ivorian without any need for adaptation.

What’s more, Mourinho hasn’t made a secret of his interest in Spurs players before, having considered moves for Eric Dier and Danny Rose.

Weakening a top-four rival would also be a massive boost for United.

Only Manchester United and Tottenham conceded fewer goals than Chelsea’s 33 last season.

After switching to three in defence, the Blues’ trio of Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill were impenetrable for a large part of their title-winning campaign.

Cracks have started to show this season though and Luiz and Cahill have fallen out of favour, with Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger coming in for the pair.

Ethan Ampadu has even been preferred to the Brazilian at times.

Christensen and Rudiger are both exciting young players but have a mistake in them. Alderweireld would add vital experience to the backline.

He has tended to play in the middle of a back three, which would mean he replaces the Dane, but he’s also comfortable playing in a back four.

With Antonio Conte’s future uncertain, it’s not yet clear what formation the Blues will use next season.

But despite The Mirror claiming Chelsea are interested in the defender, it would be a huge surprise to see him end up at Stamford Bridge, especially if they don’t clinch Champions League football next season.

Tottenham are unlikely to want to sell to a rival, let alone the Blues.

The Stamford Bridge hierarchy will remember when the North Londoners blocked Luka Modric’s move across the capital in 2011. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would rather sell abroad.

Manchester United Star Marcus Rashford Wanted By Real Madrid In Sensational Summer Swoop




REAL MADRID have been linked with a shock move to sign Marcus Rashford this summer.

The Spanish giants are preparing for a major overhaul of their squad this summer after falling well short in their attempt to defend the La Liga title.

One of the biggest areas of their focus is on bringing in at least one new striker to start taking the burden off Cristiano Ronaldo to score goals.

And Catalan title Sport claim Rashford is one of the names on the list of potential targets for Zinedine Zidane.

Real have held a long-standing interest in Tottenham striker Harry Kane – though the prospect of having to stump up £200million to get him has seen their interest cool.

Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowksi is seen as the most likely to move to the Bernabeu now that he has made it clear he is looking to quit the Bundesliga.

But the reports claim Rashford’s struggle to get regular starting roles at Manchester United this season have given Real encouragement he could be available.

Zidane and officials at the club have been impressed by the 20-year-old ever since he burst onto the scene two years ago in sensational style.

His calmness in front of goal quickly caught the eye, but the Spanish club are also said to be impressed by his all-round style of play.

They believe the fact he is versatile and able to rotate around the front line makes him the ideal kind of player who would succeed in their team.

And boss Joachim Loew believes the decision to drop Reus will be in the Dortmund star’s interest.

He commented: “It’s important for us that Marco is guided to the top level gently and without additional pressure and that he gets stability.

“This means that he’s free of complaints, fit and playing over a longer period, that he trains, finds his rhythm and thus gains security and confidence.”
