Mourinho hopes World Cup players can feature in opener

Transfer news

Transfer news Thibaut Courtois is on Real Madrid's radar this summer

According to Sky in Italy, Manchester United have rejected a sensational swap deal for Paul Pogba by Barcelona.

Blockbuster deals, by their very nature, are long-drawn processes, and while the few days left in the English transfer window may still have something in store, one can't say so for certain.

It was reported yesterday that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, has reassured Barcelona that he will get Paul Pogba to move to the Nou Camp.

The interview in particular the report points to is an interview with ESPN he did two weeks ago wherein Mourinho wonders why Pogba's performances in the World Cup for France were far more impressive than those with Manchester United.

The stern-faced United boss was seen out and about in Manchester city centre on Tuesday evening, casually wearing his jumper around his neck before heading for some food with his entourage. It is understood that the hard relationship between Mourinho and his 25-year-old star has become tense once again, however.

Chelsea forward Willian has fuelled speculation that he could be on his way to Manchester United by admitting that he hopes to work with Jose Mourinho again.

"I don't know, maybe it's good for the fans". Is it too much to demand that the best-paid managers in the world should be able to make a talented group of players into something greater than the sum of their parts?

Chelsea winger Willian, though supposedly happy at Chelsea, has revealed that he's targeting a reunion with former manager Jose Mourinho. Barca offered £45million plus defender Yerry Mina and midfielder Andre Gomes for the World Cup winning playmaker, but the Red Devils turned it down.
