Jaap Stam: Title always the aim for Manchester United

Manchester United Contemplates £27 Million Bid, but Jose Mourinho May Not Be Able to Play Him Man United youngster has played his way into Jose Mourinho's first-team squad next season

The Red Devils only suffered one pre-season defeat all summer - as Neymar scored for Barcelona - after victories over LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Valerenga and Sampdoria.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is quietly exerting ever greater influence on Manchester United, The National said in a frech article published on Saturday, August 5.

Mourinho took his spending this window past the £150m mark after signing Nemanja Matic from Chelsea with the midfielder following Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku in making the move to Old Trafford.

United are wary of doing business with Internazionale again after the frustration of negotiating for the £48m-priced winger over the last two months, but those close to the clubs still think it will eventually happen.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba held his first Twitter question and answer session on Saturday - and some fans showed they would do anything to speak to their hero.

"You're always looking as a manager, Mourinho as well, how last season went and what quality do we need".

He said, "Mourinho seems intent on buying more and more players".

The west London side earned plenty of praise last season for their impressive performances playing three at the back.

The entire thing was clearly light hearted - the lady smiling as she clutched the bars of what looked like a bird cage - and Pogba saw the amusing side. Of course, a lot of this was rubbish as Pogba had shined in a three-man midfield with Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick before initially struggling to adapt to Mourinho's change of formation to a 4-2-3-1 where he was required to play with more defensive responsibilities. The bullish defender is capable of charging not just into but also past defences.
