Manchester United hopeful, Real Madrid still not hopeless

Manchester United and Colombian center back Yerry Mina are reportedly close to agreeing to personal terms, but Barcelona's asking price of €40m for the 24-year-old has been a roadbump in negoations. My little Swan is fine, for the mom it was harder but thanks to God she's better now.

The latest news coming about Kovacic's transfer is even with getting a superb bid offer from The Red Devils, he isn't going there and that due to not liking the style of Mourinho.

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs is among the list, while Antonio Conte, Luis Enrique and Brendan Rodgers, of all people, are also linked. "They're coming back three days early to try and be available for the team", Mourinho said from Miami, where Man United defeated Real Madrid, 2-1 in its final USA friendly match.

Mourinho had criticised him last week for not returning, telling MUTV at the time: "Anthony Martial has the baby and after the baby is born - attractive baby, full of health, thank God - he should be here and he is not here". "Then Jose started to make a few changes and he hasn't played a lot since then", said Brown, speaking exclusively to 888sport.

Throughout preseason, Mourinho has griped due to not having a full squad of players to work with and because the players he wanted to sign have not arrived.


Martial has been looking for a move away from Manchester United this summer and several clubs hold an interest in the Frenchman.

That is not what Mourinho had in mind at the start of the summer and certainly not what striker Romelu Lukaku was expecting when he spoke about the summer window in March. The Brazilian has not returned to training from his post-World Cup break.

Speaking to MUTV after the Liverpool game Mourinho said, "Anthony Martial has the baby and after the baby is born - attractive baby, full of health, thank God - he should be here and he is not here".

"Well I can say in my name that when he went (for) the first time to Benfica, he told me he is a fan of Liverpool".
