Juventus over Manchester United

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is unhappy with the early start for this season's Premier League campaign and says he won't start players returning from the World Cup in the Red Devils' Aug. 10 opener.

Manchester United kick off the 2018-19 season when they face Leicester City on August 10, which United boss Mourinho says does not allow sufficient time for players featuring at the World Cup in Russian Federation to rest and then recover their fitness.

Mourinho, who has shown interest in the player before, has since praised the attacker for his performance against the Three Lions, saying he is not a typical winger.

Perisic scored the equalising goal and then provided the assist for Mario Mandzukic's victor as Zlatko Dalic's side came from behind to record a 2-1 victory after extra-time, producing a display that reminded viewers why the former Inter boss had made him his number one transfer target after taking charge of Manchester United last summer.

"Perisic is the kind of winger that is different to the others", the Sun quotes Mourinho as saying.

"Normally you look at wingers and they are just fast and creative but he is also physical, very physical, fantastic in the air".

Rumours linking the 29-year-old with a move to Old Trafford have been circulating for the best part of a year now, but according to Paris United (via Get French Football News) these talks are now at a more advanced stage than ever before.

"So he was incredible by going there and winning that ball in the air".

Jose Mourinho is set to include a number of young players in Manchester United's squad for their preseason tour of the United States after training with the first team at Carrington. Let us know in the comments section below.
