|Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho set to open up as Ronaldo and Bale issues loom
ทาง เข้า sbo Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho is set to meet the press for the first time this summer, with Cristiano Ronaldo high on the agenda. We’ve heard plenty from Jose Mourinho during the summer - but it’s fair to say the hosts of Russia Today hardly provided to the sternest of interrogations.
The Manchester United manager’s role as a guest pundit during the World Cup never saw him waver from the job at hand.Club matters were put to one side - and even amid talk of a new contract for David de Gea, Mourinho's focus was solely on the events in Russia.
Why didn’t he go for Ronaldo?
Twelve months ago Mourinho described signing Cristiano Ronaldo as Mission Impossible.Juventus would beg to differ.It’s understood United never seriously threw their hat into the ring when it became clear the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was ready to leave Real Madrid.
ทาง เข้า sbo Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward has long-been adamant United would be there if the world’s finest players became available.Yet in the space of two summers United have watched on as Neymar and Ronaldo have proved eminently gettable.The belief is Mourinho prioritised the signing of another forward over Ronaldo - namely Gareth Bale. But it will be interesting to hear his own account of events.
How many more signings before United can challenge City?
Two players have been recruited at a cost of over £70m in Fred and Diogo Dalot - but is that really enough to close the 19-point gap on the Premier League champions?.Mourinho is adamant it will take money to reel in Pep Guardiola’s side.
But exactly how many more players does he want before the transfer window closes in less than four weeks?.A top class centre back is a must - but Tottenham want too much for Toby Alderweireld and another option in Clement Langlet opted for Barcelona. Elsewhere, Mourinho knows the balance of his attack continues to be a problem on the right, while he’d also ideally recruit a like-for-like back up for Romelu Lukaku.
Can Martial/Shaw resurrect United careers?
Both men are part of United’s travelling squad here in the US, but their futures remain uncertain.Luke Shaw has been given a reprieve after Mourinho opted to shelve plans to sign a left back - but he still faces a fight to establish himself ahead of Ashley Young. His agent has revealed he wants to leave - and with Alexis Sanchez set to be utilised on the left, the French international faces the prospect of being a fringe player this season. ทาง เข้า sbo
