Zinedine Zidane Sets Sights On Premier League Move

Paul Pogba’s form has been inconsistent since Mourinho brought him to Old Trafford two years ago

United finished 19 points behind runaway winners Manchester City last term and Mourinho has been unapologetic in voicing his dissatisfaction with the lack of sufficient reinforcements this summer.

In the past, Mourinho has seldom stayed longer than three seasons at a club, and Zidane is said to be very aware of this, which is why he is apparently putting his name in the hat should the role open up.

Not only did Zidane hail Pogba in 2016 (The Guardian), but The Mirror also reported in November that Zidane wanted to rescue Martial from his United struggles and take him to Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old was one of three signings at Old Trafford this summer, and while much was made of United's late pursuit of a central defender, it is understood the club had not originally identified the need for a new centre-back when formulating their plans for the transfer window.

Now with Mourinho's job possibly under threat following a chaotic pre-season that saw the ex-Chelsea manager in verbal conflict with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over transfer policy, Zidane could be the man to step in.

On Tuesday he tweeted that he had secured funding to buy all Tesla shares and take the company private . Shorting a stock can temporarily lower its price, making short investors a frequent target of CEO wrath.

"I don't see them challenging for the league this year".

United were never keen on signing Toby Alderweireld as their scouting reports indicated he operates better in a three-man defence. He told me that United was a huge club.

"Manchester City, PSG, but I chose United".

A robust figure in the middle of the park, Fellaini's height is sure to cause Brighton some problems, and after Chris Hughton's side lost 2-0 to Watford on the opening day they will not fancy coming up against Fellaini, who is likely to make United stronger.

Luke Shaw lavishes praise on Manchester United teammate Paul Pogba, branding the midfielder "one of the most important players in the Premier League".
