Claude Makelele: Why Jose Mourinho is struggling at Man United

  • Man United reportedly considering controversial swap deal for Paulo Dybala

And if that is the case, a swap deal can be something that Jose Mourinho would look forward to.

Mourinho really, really wanted a central defender before the window slammed shut with a bunch of names linked with a transfer to Old Trafford.

France's Le 10Sport seem to think that the gears are already in motion for Zidane's move to Manchester, reporting that the 46-year-old has already held talks with United and wishes to bring Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann with him to the club.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to sell Paul Pogba against the wish of the club's owners.

"So when we give him time, and we give him patience, and we understand that this is a period where we have to develop into where we want to be at the point where we can say: now we can win the Premier League - then I think we will get there".

"I had enquiries from PSG and Manchester United", Boateng told Bild via Metro. It was no escape, but rather the thrill of a new challenge. I feel well at Bayern, it's one of the biggest clubs in the world.

"I called Jose Mourinho, I told him that his interest was an honour for me and thanked him for trying so hard for me".

Boateng actually lined out against United in a pre-season friendly on August 5 and must have impressed Mourinho but the German global never looked keen on a return to Manchester. He won the Champions League with the side in 2013, six consecutive Bundesliga titles and three German Cups.

However, it wasn't to be and Mourinho ended up empty handed as executive vice chairman Ed Woodward failed to land any of his defensive targets so United will have to wait until at least January to get their hands on a new centre-back.
