Mourinho has done well this season but has been luckless, feels Ferguson

David Moyes was aware of the player's quality and sealed a move for the defender following his appointment as the Black Cats' manager.

"And then you have high-level coaches like Mourinho and Guardiola".

"They have got a big thing about them, Geordies, in terms of travelling as they want to be players".

Manchester United are eyeing a summer move for Tottenham star and England worldwide Eric Dier, according to The Sun.

Carrick will also have a testimonial held in his honour before the start of the next Premier League season, with United paying homage to his brilliant years of service.

Just way too many draws for the Red Devils.

Even if they fail to finish in the top four, they could qualify for next year's Champions League if they win the Europa League this season.

While top four will indeed be a struggle, and a title won't be happening, at least Mourinho has silverware already- having beaten Southampton for the EFL Cup.

Now, The Manchester Evening News report that, with Chelsea pursuing a £35million deal for Bakayoko, Manchester United are now entering the race - and have more than a fighting chance of winning the battle.

"First of all, the club has never won the Europa League", Ferguson added.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is very skilled at making excuses. "I know the players I want", he said.

Fergie's comments are quite similar to what he had to say about the club in January.

Team mate Chris Smalling is also set to miss out this weekend after suffering a knee injury during the global break and the centre-back was spotted wearing a protective knee brace yesterday.

"If they perform anything like (they can) they have got a great chance of winning. I know he's had a little bit of criticism, but from what I've seen.he's a courageous young player", added Scholes. "He has had six 1-1 draws and in every game he has battered the opposition".

Manchester United are reportedly challenging Chelsea for Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko.
