Round-Up: Manchester United want Kylian Mbappe, Toby Alderweireld and Willian

Round-Up: Manchester United want Kylian Mbappe, Toby Alderweireld and Willian

Jose Mourinho wants Kylian Mbappe, Toby Alderweireld and Willian at Manchester United this summer. You can read about Bastian Schweinsteiger's descent to the Chicago Fire in MLS. For those of you wondering why he couldn't get much traction at Old Trafford, this offers a description of a man who would struggle to fit into the kind of gameplan that Jose Mourinho wants from his players. Here's Zlatan Ibrahimovic: he still hates Pep Guardiola, claiming the feud gives him, 'adrenaline'. Ibrahimovic is a gloriously petty man, and we'll miss him if he leaves in the summer. Ander Herrera wants...

José Mourinho talks tactics, maturity, and throws more jabs at van Gaal

José Mourinho talks tactics, maturity, and throws more jabs at van Gaal

Mourinho sat down with France Football and he had a lot to get off of his chest. Manchester United manager José Mourinho, The Special Calm One, gave an extensive interview with France Football, because he knew that the international break was coming up and that the people needed some #content. Bless him. He managed - with more tact than David “Brexit” Moyes - to lower the expectations for United fans, while also (again) taking shots at his great friend and mentor Louis van Gaal and the team’s style of play under the Dutchman. “...for me, all the stages of the process are...

He points out United have never won the tournament (he won the Cup Winners' Cup and the Champions League in his...

Your guide to Manchester United's international break

Your guide to Manchester United's international break

Here's where United's players are flying off to this fortnight. Manchester United's relentless fixture list takes a pause for the rest of the month, as international football creaks back into life. For the United fan, this is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, it means we don't have to have the Paul Pogba argument for at least another couple of weeks. The Frenchman is injured, and will be taking his leisure. But on the other, the possibility of injuries and general knackeredness looms large. Fifteen members of United's first-team squad are jetting off around the world, and a if a delicate...

Round-Up: Manchester United could miss out on Antoine Griezmann

Round-Up: Manchester United could miss out on Antoine Griezmann

Manchester United may miss out on Antoine Griezmann, Jose Mourinho has calmed down, and Bastian Schweinsteiger has gone away. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he has relaxed. He is more in charge of his emotions, and is no longer consumed by football. He also has said that United are lacking senior players with knowledge of victory, and that was why Zlatan Ibrahimovic was brought in for at least this season. He says that only Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick are there from the last team of substance, which is a shame for Antonio Valencia. The newly calm Mourinho claims that...

Transfer News: Bastian Schweinsteiger leaves Manchester United for MLS’ Chicago Fire

Transfer News: Bastian Schweinsteiger leaves Manchester United for MLS’ Chicago Fire

The German legend ends a disappointing spell at United. Manchester United were already heading to the USA this summer, but it seems one (former) employee is going to beat them there. Bastian Schweinsteiger, the Germany and Bayern Munich legend, latterly employed as perhaps the world’s best-paid mascot, has left Manchester United to join the Chicago Fire and MLS. The Chicago Tribune broke the news late on Monday that Schweinsteiger had signed a one-year Designated Player contract with the Fire, presumably on a free transfer from United. Throughout my career, I’ve always sought...

Manchester United are coming to America this summer

The Red Devils are playing five games in five cities in the USA in July. Manchester United announced today that the club will be returning to the USA for a preseason tour in July. Jose Mourinho’s men will play five games in five cities. Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Santa Clara, and Washington, D.C. have been confirmed, with the final city yet to be announced. Following reports that Mourinho prefers to be based on the West Coast, it looks likely that United will set up their training base somewhere in the Southern California area. We're heading to the USA this summer for #MUTOUR,...

Round-Up: Jose Mourinho prefers Europa League glory to top four finish

Round-Up: Jose Mourinho prefers Europa League glory to top four finish

Jose Mourinho would prefer the Europa League to the top four, there's aggro between Boro and United, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic could stay for another season. Jose Mourinho said he would rather win the Europa League than finish fourth this season, which makes sense. The harder task is to finish fourth, so he needs to take the pressure off there, and to win the Europa League is something United should be capable of given the opposition left in the tournament. Right now, Mourinho should be disappointed if he fails to achieve both. There was some aggro in the game between 'Boro and United...

Middlesbrough vs. Manchester United 2017 live stream: Time, TV schedule and how to watch Premier League online

United travel to face struggling Middlesbrough on Sunday. Arsenal succumbed to their fourth defeat in five league matches on Saturday, opening the door for Manchester United to leapfrog them when they take on Middlesbrough in Sunday's early kickoff. A win would see José Mourinho's men move within a place and three points of Liverpool and the top four, as the season hurtles alarmingly towards its conclusion. It's a game United really ought to be winning, with Middlesbrough having won fewer games in the Premier League this season than anyone else. Their poor form put paid to Aitor Karanka's...

Round-Up: Mourinho is complaining again

Round-Up: Mourinho is complaining again

Mourinho loves a moan and a sly dig, Roy Keane isn’t impressed, and Wayne Rooney’s England days may be over. Jose Mourinho is not a happy camper. He’s angry at the Premier League for not being more accommodating to Manchester United’s congested fixture list. He’s angry at pundits who criticize Paul Pogba out of “envy.” He’s angry at the Boro players who got his mate Aitor Karanka sacked. On top of all that, he claims that United’s transfer market activity that preceded his appointment was poor, something that comes as a complete shock to exactly zero United fans. In a BBC...

Manchester United will play Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-finals

Manchester United will play Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-finals

It's a trip to Belgium for Manchester United, which we're guessing will please Jose Mourinho. As continental excursions go, they don't come much more convenient than a quick hop to Belgium. So we're assuming that Jose Mourinho will be delighted that Manchester United were today drawn against RSC Anderlecht of Belgium in the Europa League. Their Constant Vanden Stock Stadium a mere 333 miles from Old Trafford. Barring any shenanigans on the part of television companies or UEFA, the games will be played on 13 and 20 April. United will be away in the first leg, and at home for the second. What...

Paul Pogba will miss Middlesbrough, sit out international break

Paul Pogba will miss Middlesbrough, sit out international break

After limping off in the Europa League, Manchester United's key midfielder will miss at least one Premier League game. 89 million quid. 89 million quid. And he's injured. For 89 million quid, you'd expect a football who can play without hamstrings. And you'd expect hamstrings made out of tungsten. And you'd expect tungsten reinforced with ... wow, this is tiring. No idea how Paul Pogba's critics keep going. Anyway, everybody gets a break now, not least the man himself. Pogba limped off early in the second half against Rostov, pulling something while chasing the ball around the centre...

Amazing scenes at Old Trafford Manchester United may have scored a lovely goal against FC Rostov to progress to the quarter-finals of the Europa League. It may have been a dull game, with a questionable line-up, and costly injuries to Paul Pogba and Daley Blind.

Manchester United 1-0 Rostov: Reds through into Europa League quarterfinals

Manchester United 1-0 Rostov: Reds through into Europa League quarterfinals

United made hard work of beating Rostov on Thursday, but beat them they did. Manchester United booked their place in the quarterfinals of the Europa League on Thursday, with a 1-0 win at home to Rostov sufficient to ensure a 2-1 aggregate victory. The only goal of a poor match came midway through the second half, with Juan Mata the only man able to break the monotony of an extremely dull affair. United seized control of the game from the very start, and were unfortunate not to take the lead within five minutes. An outswinging corner by Daley Blind was met by a powerful Marcos Rojo header,...

Zlatan connects with Juan Mata for back-heeled assist

Manchester United grab go-ahead goal in Europa League match. Manchester United grabbed the lead in their decisive Europa League Round of 16 match with Rostov on this beautiful connection between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata in the 70th minute. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Also deserving a good deal of credit on this is Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who puts in the cross. But let’s face it, the bulk of the credit should go to Ibrahimovic, who not only gets the play started but also puts himself in prime position before making an inch-perfect blind pass to Mata.

Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial still missing for Manchester United

Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial still missing for Manchester United

United's captain will miss tonight's Europa League game against FC Rostov, along with United's no. 11. Not a huge surprise, but nevertheless disappointing: one of Manchester United's most exciting, capable, and talented attackers will miss tonight's must-win (or at least, must-not-lose-or-score-draw). Oh, and ... [extremely obvious punchline screams through the atmosphere and lands with a wet slap on the floor] ... Wayne Rooney's missing too. According to Manchester United's official website — and it really should know — both Martial and the Roonster are still struggling with the knocks...

Manchester United's march towards the most accessible Champions League qualifying spot European glory continues this evening as Russia's FC Rostov come to Old Trafford for the second leg of the last 16.

Round-Up: Mourinho in training ground row before Rostov clash

Jose Mourinho had a training ground bust-up, there's a ticket snub for the Europa League final, Paul Pogba's critics are just jealous and Marcus Rashford could be called up for England. Jose Mourinho dealt with the pundits going for Paul Pogba, saying: “I feel that the world is losing values and I am scared about the level of envy coming in. It is not Paul’s fault that he gets 10 times the money some players did in the past. It is not his fault that some pundits are in real trouble with their lives and need every coin to survive, while Paul is a multimillionaire. I think Paul deserves...
