Manchester United lack quality to challenge title, says Scholes

Zinedine Zidane Wants To Replace Jose Mourinho As Man Utd Boss

Paul Pogba wants to leave Manchester United for Barcelona even if his fractured relationship with manager Jose Mourinho can be mended.

He wasn't named in the Manchester United squad that played against Leicester City last Saturday.

The 46-year-old is now out of work since resigning as manager of Los Blancos in May 2018, just five days after winning his third consecutive Champions League trophy.

Last month, former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who is now without a job, was favourite to take over the reigns at Old Trafford at 4/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power, according to Oddschecker.

The French legend won the La Liga trophy in 2017 as well as two Club World Cup trophies during his two and a half years as first team manager at the Bernabeu.

The latest briefing from Manchester United insiders on Wednesday backed the club's manager and insisted the club "are convinced they have the squad to challenge for the Premier League title", despite a disappointing summer in the transfer market.

What We Learned from the RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 Gameplay Trailer
A few trailers have highlighted the main plot, but a new clip showcasing the actual gameplay has finally arrived via Gamespot . This Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer is a six-minute window into the game, exclusively featuring video captured in-game.

Old Trafford boss Mourinho has "been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer", says the Metro, after a frustrating pre-season.

United have failed to win the Premier League title since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.

A furious Mourinho told Pogba he did not appreciate those comments and added, "If you wish to leave Manchester, again, all you have to do is ask for a transfer".

Manchester United have been handed a major injury boost as Diogo Dalot is expected to return to full training at some point this week, according to the Metro.

But the bad blood is hanging over from last season when the pair fell out leading to Mourinho dropping and subbing the player.

Pogba confirmed his unhappiness at the club by telling reporters after the game that "There are things I can say and there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined".
