Mourinho: Griezmann? Woodward knows who I want

1 has had to make do with only six Premier League starts in his two seasons with United since signing from Sampdoria, where he also had a limited role.

Mourinho has now revealed that he called Ferguson after the game to tell him he had completed the club's title jigsaw.

"But you never know what's going to happen in the future so you have to keep working hard for what comes next".

Manchester United's players celebrate after victory in the Uefa Europa League final football match Ajax Amsterdam v Manchester United on 24 May, 2017 at the Friends Arena in Solna outside Stockholm.

United will be in the Champions League next season, and a squad overhaul seems inevitable.

The Red Devils, though, won the Europa League and the EFL Cup this campaign, and have qualified for the group stage of next season's Champions League.

"That's why yesterday we didn't want to have the press conference because we had to prepare ourselves to do our job and to try to forget events that are obviously much more important than our job".

"That's the way I look at things".

"For the team it means everything, means a third trophy, go back to Champions League, means win a European trophy, means play European Super Cup in Macedonia in August, means for the club the last piece of the puzzle".

"The club now has every title in world football", the 54-year-old proudly claimed.

Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has paid tribute to the people of the city and said the team's success in winning soccer's Europa League gave everyone a lift following Monday's deadly terror attack.

Mourinho, asked whether he thought a deal for Griezmann was likely, told Sky: "I have no idea".

"We felt the sadness of the city of Manchester". We came without the happiness we should bring with us, because when you come for these big matches, you come happy, you come proud. Or are they putting all their eggs in the wrong basket?
