Mourinho says Man United want Zlatan to stay

Mourinho says Man United want Zlatan to stay

Mourinho spoke highly of Hernandez earlier in the week and his admiration of the 29-year-old is obvious.

"And for me the medal will go to some place in my house and for that kid it's for sure something to keep and remember".

He said: "It's not because I have always done it that I am going to do it".

Luke Shaw is clearly not a Mourinho favourite and Matteo Darmian got the nod against Madrid on Tuesday.

Seemed as if we were headed for some extra time in the opener possibly, however, Olivier Giroud was having none of that.

In his first season with Manchester United, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has found his niche in the starting eleven.

Then there is the ever-steady Sergio Aguero who has taken the award before and has the experience. The Armenian winger did so well in the Europa League, but can he continue that run of form in the Champions League? Inter's refusal to listen to offers below their £48m valuation of their player has prevented any deal from being struck, with Gareth Bale not interested in a move to Old Trafford despite the club's long-standing interest in the Real Madrid star.

"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals, what we had was midfielders, wingers scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces", Mourinho said.

"What it means for me to be the Premier League champion?"

The signings of defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica, midfielder Nemanja Matic from Chelsea and striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton have also lifted the mood.

Manager Pep Guardiola's focus on bringing in quality wide players on either flank has been crucial to City's strategy of stretching opponents in pre-season.

Liverpool and Tottenham are among the favourites and hoping to win their first Premier League title.

It will be a tough season ahead, but I have a feeling Brighton will survive, probably by the skin of their teeth.

Arsenal - It will be another season of pain for Arsenal with possibly more protests over Arsene Wenger.

Manchester United's season begins on Sunday when they host West Ham at Old Trafford.

He scored the winner in a Europa League qualifying match this month.
