Ibrahimovic predicts 'something special' at Manchester United

Manchester United have been linked with looking to sell a defender to make space to bring in Harry Maguire from Leicester City, with some fans weighing in on social media.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho declined to answer when asked if he would be confident of challenging for the Premier League title next season with no further additions to his squad.

That lack of action cost him a place in France's World Cup squad, with Les Bleus going on to taste glory in Russian Federation without him.

Mourinho said: "I found out that Martial was going to Paris when he told me".

He could walk away for nothing next summer, although sources have told ESPN FC United are keen for the 23-year-old to agree fresh terms to protect their investment on a player who cost £30 million from Southampton in 2014. But this transfer - should it go through - will surely brighten up supporters, as they wait for the new season in 15 days day.

Despite the aforementioned interest in the Frenchman from Tottenham, United will insist Martial moves overseas if he does leave the club.


Speaking to Alan Brazil, the 32-year-old former England global spoke highly of Martial's ability but slammed Mourinho for not getting the best out of his winger, "I think Martial, ability-wise, is incredible, But I think it's how do you get the best out of him?".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola also claimed agent Mino Raiola had tried to broker a deal that would have seen the player cross the divide in Manchester.

When Mourinho took over from Louis van Gaal in the summer of 2016 he inherited a schedule that took United to China in what proved an unhappy tour.

"Hi everybody. Guess who is back watching United train?"

Having found regular starts hard to come by during the 2017-18 campaign, it has been reported that the 22-year-old could soon be heading for the exits at Old Trafford. He knows I can be a top player.

"I'm happy and when I'm fit I play, so I just want to carry on from last season and right now the shirt's mine and I intend to keep it".
