There was also confirmation that the club would avoid signing ageing stars in the future, with the expensive and ultimately unsuccessful deal that brought Bastian Schweinsteiger to United in 2015 highlighted as a lesson learned, with the aim of this method of communication created to clarify the club's policy in a summer dominated by speculation over their potential transfer targets.

In the past, Mourinho has seldom stayed longer than three seasons at a club, and Zidane is said to be very aware of this, which is why he is apparently putting his name in the hat should the role open up.

Mourinho has already hinted that he is happy to bring Jesse Lingard back into the squad, after the England global was left out of the squad last weekend.

United officials believe there are differences in that Mourinho was coming off the back of winning titles at Real Madrid and Chelsea ahead of those respective departures.

The 19-year-old has been recovering in recent months after undergoing surgery in May and although he travelled with the rest of the United squad to the United States for their pre-season tour, he didn't feature in any games and only took part in light individual training away from the main group.

Philippine Chef de Mission Richard Gomez confirmed that the Cavs guard will play in an article by CJ Marquez for CNN Philippines . If Clarkson does miss the all-important game against Kazakhstan, his much-awaited PH debut will be against China on August 21.

Pogba is prepared to wait until January or next summer, but meanwhile his relationship with Mourinho will come under more scrutiny amid fears it has reached breaking point. You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, and you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next.

Luke Shaw says his goal for Manchester United in their 2-1 Premier League win over Leicester City gave him "the best feeling" in his career so far. A player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy.

Mourinho is set to address Pogba's comments with the media on Friday but must now decide whether to let him keep the captain's armband for Sunday's trip to Brighton.

According to the Mirror, Man United are said to be holding talks with Turkish side Fenerbahce over a deal for Argentinian Marcos Rojo.
