Jose Mourinho welcomes worldwide break as Manchester United's injury list grows

Share

And this is why he must leave Manchester United.

In his previous interview with French outlet TF1, Mourinho said that he would not finish his coaching career at Old Trafford which led to PSG, now coached by Unai Emery, reaching out about his availability.

Star striker Romelu Lukaku seems to have lost his way, failing to find the net in his last seven matches, after he'd started his United career like a house on fire with nine goals in his first eight.

United now sit second in the Premier League table, but Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea left them eight points adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City, who also spent big money during the summer. But at Paris Saint-Germain, Jose Mourinho could become the next Sir Alex Ferguson.

According to reports, the Ligue 1 leaders have now made contact with Mourinho's agent, Jorge Mendes, about replacing Unai Emery at the Parc des Princes.

This definitely wouldn't sit well with the 54-year-old.

The Old Trafford board want to control costs before sanctioning more outlay on new signings.

The fear among United's hierarchy is that, despite his immensely self-confident persona, Mourinho fears he can not compete with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City - either this season or in the future.

The manager has called on the Old Trafford hierarchy to give him greater backing in the transfer market in the coming window as he looks to keep the pace with rivals Manchester City in the Premier League title race.

He was left without an additional wide man after deals for Ivan Perisic and Gareth Bale failed to materialise.
