United legend fears Mourinho could quit United over City dominance

Premier League legend Alan Shearer has warned not to write off Manchester United's title chances, despite Jose Mourinho's despondent mood this summer. Real are desperate for midfield reinforcements after Mateo Kovacic joined Chelsea on loan and they are also facing the prospect of losing Luka Modric to Inter Milan before the month is out.

"It is hard to believe that we finished second because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners".

You've got to feel for Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who said explicitly that he wanted his new acquisitions done early this time, so that he could get better acclimated to the new players during the preseason.

"But I keep saying and thinking and feeling that the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

Manchester United have been hit by injuries throughout the pre-season tour of the United States and there are plenty of first-team stars that have only just returned from their holidays due to exploits in the World Cup this summer.

He added: "It just doesn't look like United are in the right place at the minute to challenge for the league".

Alderweireld was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but firm interest never materialised.

"What his relationship with Mourinho is like, I don't know from the outside".

"The players from previous year are responsible for the excitement, and then we brought in a few new players as an icing on the cake", said Klopp on the club's promising pre-season tour in the States.

"He's (got) a different style to them".

"Please help raise funds to get Jose out of Manchester United", Walsh writes.

Scholes is not the only one from United's famous "Class of 92" to have questioned Mourinho's management.

"We don't seem to be courageous enough in England to do that". That is a fantastic experience for him to translate to our team.

"For some reason, they wanted to go down the safe route". "Always, until you finish the game, you can not say "now it's the end of the game". You're five years down the line, not really.

The midfielder, who shone as France won the World Cup in Russian Federation last month, is reported to have told his team-mates he is desperate to leave for Spain.

"Do you want him to be very happy with the players he has around him?" said Mourinho.
