We are being linked to Pogba again and a Mexican winger called Lozano, but he is right footed and plays mostly left wing. We have too many players for that position.

He spended most of his conference talking shit about everyone (Giggs, Chelsea, Pep, Madrid, Wenger). Great manager but ridiculous man.

I absolutely loved his news conference.

He says Rooney should be striker, meaning himself or Zlatan will be on the bench and Rashford probably further down the pecking order. That worries me. If that's the case, Rooney should definitely be benched. Micki should be CAM.

EDIT: I didn't read the whole story. He says "For me, he will be a No 9 or a No 10, or a number nine-and-a-half, but with me he will never be a No 6, not even a No 8"

Meaning he will probably play behind Zlatan, Micki on the right and Martial left.

I hope that if ManU do sign Chucky Lozano he is immediately loaned out so that he doesn't turn out like Memphis Depay.

Well, then, we have Mourinho pretty much saying Rooney is a forward or he's out but then we have someone who's shit in the EURO draft saying we need him but not as a goalscorer, hmm (H)

Did i ever disagree with him when it comes to his position? What we had here is all Man U fans saying Rooney is over and must leave.

You heard Mourinho kicked Mata out of Chelsea?? Who told you?!

I do not think Mata will stay unless he plays from the bench (would be a high quality sub but a waste of talent)

It will probably be:

Zlatan
Martial Rooney Micki

Mourinho usually plays 4-2-3-1. Micki is probably the best to play the number 10 and ideally Rooney should be dropped and we get a right winger (GRIEZMANN) but none of that will happen.

That attack above with the correct tactics is good enough to challenge the title IMO.

We are very heavily linked with Pogba and he has said in the past that he still loves man U. Not sure if he would switch from UCL to Europa but so many players have downgraded to Europa already. If Pogba comes (I still expect him to go to Real Madrid though) who should partner him?

Someone changed the title of this thread. Shame on you, Sir_Didier_Drogba.

I didn't want too many ridiculous thread titles so that people can't navigate their way around. Be thankful you're not the 'real madrid thred'

Mourinho press conference: 'I will not play Rooney in midfield'

We talked about this a few posts above. He will probably play behind Ibrahimovic.

Four years ago a Rooney-Ibra forward combo would have been mouth watering.

I wonder how Rooney and zlatan will get on in personality

there is something about bvb which causes players to play above their ability and many of them (exception Lewandowski) disappoint when they move elsewhere but crucially Mkh was already very impressive when he moved to bvb and Shakhtar players tend to shine at other clubs, so I think you can be hopeful

Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has begun negotiations in the last 48 hours that could see Paul Pogba return to Old Trafford in a world record deal worth £100m, Sky Sports News HQ understands.

Juventus want to keep hold of the 23-year-old, but would find it hard to resist such a deal, which would see Pogba earning up to £300,000 a week at the club he left in 2012.

Balague says Pogba prefers Real Madrid and thats where I expect him to be next season.

Pogba would be fantastic but do we need him? He would be an upgrade but we have like 6 midfielders and I thought Schweinsteiger did good last season, when he played. Schweinsteiger and Carrick or Schneiderlin is solid enough. His # 6 is available if he is to come.

I would have prefered a left footed winger, Micki CAM and Martial left. It is a shame that Depay will have to sit on the bench because he can't play RW.

(This) schwienstieger to Pogba would be so huge of an upgrade that it's not even quantifiable. 100m is a lot of money but whatever, you can afford it
