I am the man to fix Manchester United: Diego Maradona

"I can do that for them", he added. "We speak a lot and he plays in a very good team", Maradona told FourFourTwo.

Arsenal and Liverpool have held talks about signing Moussa Dembele this summer but Manchester United are considered favourites to seal a deal for the Lyon hitman, according to L'Equipe via the Mirror.

Maradona is now in charge of Dorados de Sinaloa in the Mexican second division but has admitted he would like the chance to guide Man United, despite revealing rivals Man City had overtaken them as his "favourite" English team.

Mark Bosnich, who won a Premier League winners medal between the sticks with the Reds, something that leaves a glaring hole in Pogba's collection, believes that whatever the outcome regarding the player's future, criticism of the Frenchman from his old club's supporters is unwarranted.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is closing in on a move for Swansea City winger Daniel James, but the Manchester United manager wants to five to six new faces to his squad this summer.


"With United I liked Ander Herrera".

Manchester United doubt whether Juventus can afford Paul Pogba, sources have told ESPN FC. "What noise, like La Bombonera".

And when I say an age, this might be the biggest pause in an interview ever. I know you shouldn't change like that but it's because of Kun [Sergio Aguero].

Of course, Maradona was embroiled in controversy at the 2018 World Cup, so it may come as a surprise to some that he has taken steps into management.

But the World Cup victor - and oft-cited best-ever player - reckons he has the answers United are lacking. And that Paul Pogba has the same number of World Cup medals as him? No, me neither but it would be guaranteed entertainment.
