Manchester United 'very happy' with Jose Mourinho says agent Jorge Mendes

Manchester United 'very happy' with Jose Mourinho says agent Jorge Mendes

As is always the case at the biggest club in the world, there is plenty going on aside from Jose Mourinho's preparations for that match with the division's bottom side and we've put them all in one place in today's roundup...

We are very used to seeing Arsenal defenders in the treatment room, but the injury to Rob Holding at Man United was sure to give us even more limited options with Koscielny, Mavropanos and Monreal also in the injury list.

Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City, who finished 19 points ahead of second-placed United, are under investigation after alleged leaked documents claimed last month the club had inflated their sponsorship income in order to comply with UEFA's break-even rules.

Calculations made from publicly available figures suggest that since the summer of 2016, City have spent around £527 million (S$920 million) on players, while United's outlay has been about £379 million.

Senior sources at the club strongly denied the story to Press Association Sport at the time and it is understood that the manager still retains the backing of the United hierachy.

Mourinho did not mention City directly but made clear he believes that United are not now competing on even terms at the top end of the Premier League.

"I don't know", Mourinho said when asked how long it would be before United won the Premier League again.

Manchester United are preparing to face Fulham tomorrow looking for their first Premier League win in five matches.

The Red Devils came from behind twice to secure a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.
