Jose Mourinho Wants Three New Players At Manchester United

Jose Mourinho Wants Three New Players At Manchester United

Mourinho is reportedly still interested in Spurs' out-of-favour fullback Danny Rose, who got a rarer runout for the Lilywhites in their 4-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League this past weekend, while Lazio's central midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is said to be the club's prime target for the engine room.

"Beforehand we never looked like a team that could win the Champions League, but with him there stranger things have happened", Macari told Goal recently.

It is in the Champions League that his first six months were always going to be judged most markedly, and Tuesday's Old Trafford fixture is the biggest of Sanchez's United career so far as a result.

Manager Jose Mourinho had on Saturday after the Liverpool game replied that he did not know if Pogba will be available for the winner-takes-all tie.

He is not the only player posing selection posers for Mourinho, though, with Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind also nursing knocks which kept them out of United's latest training session.

On the other hand, Sevilla do not have confirmed absentees but several players are doubtful and could miss the game at Old Trafford this Tuesday.


But the tough games do not stop for United, as they are back in action this week when they welcome Spanish giants Sevilla in the Round of 16 second-leg of the Champions League this week.

"It is a big opportunity for us, " said the Italian, who will be without former Manchester City wide man Jesus Navas through injury. They have two wins and two losses in their last four Liga matches since the first leg against Manchester United, and both losses have come at home. There were, however, wins against both Malaga and Athletic Bilbao in between that sandiwch of defeats. The Chilean cut a forlorn figure in Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and was subbed off for Marcus Rashford in the 75th minute.

The 24-year-old is now being denied the opportunity to play his way back into form, with another spell on the sidelines being taken in at the worst possible time. Will they pull the upset, or will United hold on? Keep your best stuff for the @FIFAWorldCup this time.

With Pogba missing, Mourinho could well go for the same starting line-up as we saw against Liverpool.
