Mourinho ‘would love’ to sell Sanchez, Fred on way?, Mourinho killing Rashford claim in Man United Monday
Here is a daily roundup of todays Manchester United news, gossip and transfer news from IcFootballnews.com.
Jose Mourinho would love to sell Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window, according to Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas.
Sanchez has flopped since joining Manchester United from Arsenal in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January, and has been heavily criticised for his performances and work-rate for the side, especially since he claims a £300,000-a-week wages.
That has led to constant speculation that a number of clubs from both Spain and Italy are preparing offers to try and temp United into doing a deal this coming January transfer window.
And Nicolas has claimed Mourinho would sell the Chilean star when the first real opportunity arises for the club, claiming on the Sky Sports website: “It’s on the edge with (Paul) Pogba being left out, and (Juan) Mata being left out the other night.
“I think in a heartbeat they would love to get rid of Sanchez.
“He could be one of the biggest wastes of money within our game because of the salary that he’s got and because of the ability that we’ve seen before.
“I think it’s right on the edge again, I think it’s right on the edge.
“A lot of the players look as if it’s truly individual and just trying to survive and come through.
“(Maroaune) Fellaini has been the one that’s dragged himself saying ‘I’m fighting for the manager after showing me faith’.
“I think the rest of them look as if ‘well, in a matter of time Jose could be out of the door’. (READ MORE)
Brazilian midfielder Fred has announced his frustration at Manchester United, and could depart the club.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder arrived at Old Trafford during the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho’s only big buy of the transfer window, and was supposed to be the idea man to get the best out of Paul Pogba
But the 25-year-old has failed to establish himself at Old Trafford following a £52m move from Donetsk to the Premier League over the summer, and he has admitted his frustration under the special one.
“I’ve played very little at United, so it’s normal for Professor Tite not to be able to evaluate me, even though I’ve worked hard with him before,” Fred told the Sunday Mirror.
“Of course, I was annoyed, but I have to know how to deal with the sadness to be able to help me take a step forward.”
Fred has been linked with a move to Serie A and La Liga over the last few weeks and could decide to make the switch away if he fails to break back into the starting line-up at Old Trafford. (READ MORE)
Jose Mourinho is ‘killing’ Arsenal target Marcus Rashford and the England forward ‘must’ leave Manchester United to save his career, according to Garth Crooks.
Rashford burst onto the scene at Old Trafford a few seasons ago and immediately became a real fans favourite at the club, and is also regarded as one of the best young talents in world football.
But over the last 12 months there has been a change in confidence for Rashford, as the youngster does not look like the exciting and skilful winger that got United fans off his feet, and under the guidance of Mourinho, his development is heading backwards, not forwards.
That has led to some speculation that Arsenal could make a surprise move for Rashford in the coming windows, as Unai Emery needs to replace Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, and is a big, big fan of the Englishman.
Now Crooks has claimed Mourinho is killing the talented young man, telling the BBC sport website: ‘This really can’t go on. Jose Mourinho is killing Marcus Rashford.
‘The lad pulled Manchester United from the jaws of defeat at Southampton and then Jose gave the one man who was desperate to win the game for him the hook? It made no sense. ‘The kid was on a roll and anyone who has played the game could see that. Mourinho may have won trophies but he destroys players in the process.
‘He is doing to Rashford what he did to Arjen Robben at Chelsea. Rashford must get out of United now before what little confidence he has left is destroyed.’ (READ MORE)
