Jose Mourinho watched former side Chelsea lift the title yesterday after winning their 30th PL game of the season. On the other hand, his Man United team finished 6th. After spending heavy cash on top quality players last summer, the Red Devils have finished no fewer than 24 points behind the champions and that is just not good enough.
Jose needs to step up big time next season and is ready to splash more cash to further reinforce his squad this summer. If reports in the media are anything to go by then the former Blues boss is once again interested in Nemanja Matic.
The Serbian international was linked with Man United last summer and even in the winter transfer window as well.
Now, according to an exclusive report covered by the Sun, Mourinho is ready to finally secure his signature in a deal worth 35 million pounds ($45.4million).
Matic was a key member of the Chelsea side that won the 2014-15 title under the management of Jose. He was also fantastic in this season’s title winning c…
The Spanish media aren’t giving up on James Rodriguez to Manchester United. It had been the Spanish media mainly pushing the potential move for some months, but when the Colombian press jumped in recently it all got a little out of hand.
Rodriguez to Manchester United was said to be all agreed, indeed, there had been suggestions it would be announced on Sunday.
Sunday came and went without the announcement, and it seems to be a case of Real Madrid and Jorge Mendes dangling James over the transfer market and hoping that someone will bite.
AS still have hope that could be Manchester United. In their Tuesday agreement, the Spanish newspaper say James’ move to Old Trafford will speed up after the Champions League Final in Cardiff.
So James and Real Madrid would be agreeing the ‘conditions of departure’ to Manchester United, with whom there is already an ‘agreement in principle’.
That old chestnut.
Should Manchester United not cave in to the pressure of Jorge Mendes, then AS reckon Manche…
Manchester United are nearing a deal to sign Benfica star Goncalo Guedes, according to the Metro.
The secondary striker who is admired for his link up play has netted 11 times in 68 appearances for the Portuguese giants since graduating from the academy in 2014
Guedes has been turning heads in the last few weeks with suggestions that Arsenal are ready to step up their interest. However it now appears United boss Jose Mourinho is on the verge of beating his old adversary Arsene Wenger once more.
It is understood the agent of the Portuguese international Jorge Mendes met Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira in London to discuss his client’s future. Jose Mourinho is desperate for reinforcements after both Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay departed Old Trafford this month. Benfica had hoped Depay would be included in a swap deal, but this was ruled out after the Dutchman joined Lyon for £15m earlier this week.
