Jose Mourinho Calls On Ed Woodward To Fix 'Difficult Season' Ahead

Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward

Monday's news that Manchester United have opened talks with Bayern Munich over a potential £50 million deal for Jerome Boateng hardly came as a surprise.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho hopes to be able to call upon some of the players who have just returned from the World Cup when his side host Leicester City in their Premier League opener on Friday.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Blues and the Red Devils are considering a deal that could see Brazil worldwide Willian move to Old Trafford, with former Monaco starlet Anthony Martial going the other way.

Sportsmail reported last week that the 29-year-old had been offered to United after his move to Paris Saint-Germain collapsed.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek, Kenyon said: "He is more than capable - one of the best coaches in the world - but have they got it right? No".

His trial began late a year ago , but hit a snag when he cut his ankle bracelet. "That means zip it", said the judge. Williams was granted an appeal after a court found he was misinformed about when he would be eligible for release.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer added that Boateng "would be missed" if he left, while David Alaba echoed those remarks.

Jose Mourinho has already failed in pricey moves for Leicester's Harry Maguire and Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, and while reports persist that United are still keen on Toby Alderweireld, his attentions have now turned to a fourth option.

"We'd all be sad", Alaba said.

The Frenchman was said to have rejoined with the squad following the hard birth his partner had that kept him out of previous pre-season fixtures.

"We have a good relationship, we are friends", Willian told ESPN Brasil after Chelsea lost 2-0 to Manchester City in the Community Shield. Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody.
