Zinedine Zidane ‘not interested’ in Manchester United

Following Pogba's advise, the former Chelsea boss proceeded to replace Scott McTominay with Fellaini, and told Pogba to sit in front of United's defence which now included midfielder Nemanja Matic.

Manchester United came from behind to beat Newcastle 3-2 on Saturday thanks to three second half goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez.

Mourinho's Manchester United team went on to beat Newcastle United 3-2, having come back from two goals behind and Rooney said that the recent run of poor results had reminded him of the hard times during Louis van Gaal's two-year reign at the club.

And according to the report by ESPN, Jose Mourinho wants United hierarchy to lure the duo of Milan Skriniar and Alessio Romagnoli to Old Trafford next year. "At times when I played there, you would do a lap of honour if you got a corner!"

"He was exhausted in terms of nerves, he has chosen to take a sabbatical year and he won't go back on that", said Migliaccio, Zidane's long-standing agent. "It is much less his style".

Ballon d'Or 2018: Messi, Neymar and Mbappe added to shortlist
Liverpool's Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino , Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been shortlisted for the 2018 Ballon d'Or . England only have one representative on the list in Harry Kane while Gareth Bale is also among the nominees.

"I've spoken about it with him and the truth is that it doesn't attract him".

If the first-half scoreline had carried over to the full-time whistle then reports of Mourinho's sacking would have certainly intensified, as would the rumours about his successor.

The Mirror says that the Red Devils "face shelling out £29m" if they sack him now because his current contract runs until June 2020.

Mourinho is said to have had difficulty persuading the United board to make moves for the likes of Boateng and Alderweireld over concerns about their age (both will be over 30 by the end of this season).
