Jose Mourinho hints at central midfield role for Victor Lindelöf

  • Manchester City favourites to win Premier League this season

Rattled by a chastening first season in England, Pep Guardiola has gone back to the drawing board in an attempt to fashion Manchester City into Premier League champions.

Last season was the first time in his managerial career that he finished a campaign without having added at least one trophy to his collection.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has not ruled out bringing in a fourth signing before the transfer window closes but insists he will not moan or cry if no more new faces arrive. "But we have players and if we can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have players that we trust".

The affliction between the striker and the Red Devils is clear for all to see, Ibrahimovic became a cult hero last season amongst United fans because of his desire to win, his wonderful arrogance and of course his goals.

Mourinho does not necessarily buy into the idea that more goals are needed, just a fairer spread to help them win more matches.

With Victor Lindelöf, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic already through the door, he's made little secret of the fact he'd like to bring in a wide player - a point he emphasised again while speaking ahead of United's Premier League opener against West Ham on Sunday.

"Hopefully, next season I'll be here, and now we're not going to spend how we have spent this season I assure you that".

"There's no relation between clubs and countries and seasons and periods, so obviously there is no guarantee".

"So I'm convinced I have - not just the hope - but the conviction that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

Sources close to the situation say that has actually led United to look much more closely at Rose if they can not get one of those two, especially since Mourinho plans to play a three-man defence more this season.

Ryan Howard agrees to minor league deal with Rockies
Over 1572 career games in the Majors, Howard has a.258 average with 382 homers, 1194 RBIs and a on-base percentage of.343. He led the league in home runs in both 2006 and 2008, and has almost 400 homers (382 to be exact) in his 13-year career.


With Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney no longer around, there is pressure on Paul Pogba to establish himself as the team's leader after blowing hot and cold in his first season following his return from Juventus. Not playing on Thursday nights will also be a benefit as United look to improve their Premier League form after a disappointing sixth-place finish. For the first time in 20 years, Arsene Wenger's side will be missing from the Champions League as a effect of its fifth-place Premier League finish.

"This time, we are all in the same basket".

"But they are for wonderful players, so good luck to them if they can do that. The former Everton striker scored in seven straight PL games against West Ham at one time for the Blues and, with that goal in Skopje under his belt, the Belgium global is unlikely to be lacking confidence on his competitive home debut". Defenders Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and winger Ashley Young are out with long-term injuries.

"You know, he's injured, he needs time to recover", the United boss said.

"And we got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important".

"Victor can play right back and can play central midfield, we've also got a central midfielder [Matic], we got a striker [Lukaku]".

"We [Lukaku and Pogba] talked about it last season, wondering if one day we would play together and it's happened this season so I'm very happy".

With the London Stadium now being used for the IAAF World Championships, West Ham's trip to Old Trafford will be the first of four away games to open the new domestic campaign.

Sky Sports has claimed that the two Premier League clubs are negotiating the transfer of the 21-year-old. The top seven, we are all in Europe.
