Agent admits talks between Willian and Man Utd

Agent admits talks between Willian and Man Utd”

Although it is unlikely we will see a United team play in quite the same style under Mourinho, there are signs he wants to do more than tip the hat to the club's traditions.

The 29-year-old has admitted that his agent was evaluating other options for him which led to talks with Manchester United, due to Willian's friendship with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

The form of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku will ultimately decide whether Manchester United will battle for the Premier League title this season, according to Gary Neville.

How will Mourinho use his new stars?

"He needs time but [his] experience, intelligence, a genius in the way he thinks - he thinks football", said Mourinho after Matic's debut.

Eager to tear him down, detractors gave Lukaku a rough ride in the wake of Tuesday night's UEFA Super Cup defeat at the hands of Real Madrid.

This season, United might actually be fun to watch again.

But Mourinho was nevertheless impressed with his former Chelsea charge: "I think he played really well, I think in the moment they were moving the ball well of course was hard for us in the midfield".

"The domestic competition has to be where the focus is this season, winning the Premier League".

Between Isco and Luka Modrić, Manchester United's midfield looked feeble compared to their Spanish opposition and even when United did manage to create a clear scoring chance, Pogba or Lukaku could find the net from less than ten yards out.

Man United kick off their Premier League campaign on Sunday, when they host West Ham at Old Trafford in the 4pm kick-off.
