Manchester United lack quality to challenge for title, says Scholes

Manchester United lack quality to challenge for title, says Scholes”

Manchester United are looking to appoint a Director of Football after a disappointing transfer window in which Mourinho clashed with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over his targets.

The news may please United fans, and would surely leave Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial feeling optimistic - and not just due to their seemingly frayed relationships with Mourinho.

Pogba has had heavy links to Spanish giants Barcelona and despite being handed the captain's armband in The Red Devils 2-1 premier league opener against Leicester, his relationship with his boss seems to be deteriorating.

Pogba hinted at unrest between himself and Mourinho by saying he could be fined if he said what he wanted.

Paul Pogba is a "beast" of vital importance to Manchester United and a "very big leader" in the dressing room, according to Luke Shaw. The report further added that Mourinho believes Raiola is the reason for the rumours linking Pogba with a move away to Barcelona.

"There are things that I can not say because I will be fined", he said.

Urging the media to tell the truth about his relationship with Pogba, he offered these warm words of support for the World Cup victor who has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks.

You can take it as read that Manchester City are going to be in the market for all of the best available players moving forward.

Pundits, fans and former players have all had their say and opinions have varied, but Paul Ince has perhaps offered the most interesting of them all. A player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy. Like I said, he's only been here for three or four days and to put in a performance like that was unbelievable.

Tensions between the two deepened over the remainder of the season and there was another frank exchange at Carrington lasting more than an hour in February after Pogba was substituted at Newcastle and Tottenham, then dropped to the bench against Huddersfield. Even if the two can resolve their differences, it is unlikely to alter Pogba's determination to leave Old Trafford for a second time.
