"We had a lot of chances in both halves and if it had been five or six I don't think anyone could have argued".

Cristiano Ronaldo - who played under Mourinho at Real - also received a suspended two-year prison sentence and was fined almost £17m, while the likes of Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez and Javier Mascherano have also had running battles with Spanish tax Authorities on the same issue.

Ian Wright believes that Marcus Rashford may be forced to leave Manchester United in order to seek out regular first team football.

Similarly, Pogba is said to have accepted he will not be allowed to leave United until next summer at the earliest, although the Frenchman is nearly certain to make a fresh bid to leave then.

A brace from Romelu Lukaku helped to shift some of the gathering gloom around Mourinho's tenure on Sunday, as United bounced back from consecutive defeats with a 2-0 win at Burnley.


Matic, who was also with Mourinho at Chelsea, said that Mourinho is experienced and he is handling the pressure well despite the numerous criticism against him.

United have made a hapless start to the season and have conceded seven goals in their four Premier League games already - it took them 14 matches of the 2017/18 season to concede that amount! He was very confident before the game [against Burnley].

As we go into the worldwide break the Red Devils sit tenth in the table, although at least ended on a high with a 0-2 reverse of struggling Burnley. "I just know that everything is in movement and hopefully sooner than later we'll have good news".

"I answered, I didn't contest it, I paid and I signed an official agreement with the state under which everything was definitively close", he said.

Yeah. You can see where this is headed.
