Man United beats Leicester 2-1 in Premier League opener

Man United beats Leicester 2-1 in Premier League opener

Yerry Mina was offered by Barcelona to United and a number of other clubs before the World Cup for €11m in an attempt by the Spanish champions to get their money back on a player they signed in January.

According to a UK Daily Mail report, the Frenchman has also informed club mates and backroom staff that he wants to quit the Old Trafford outfit two seasons after completing a then world record £89million switch from Juventus.

It was reported earlier this week that Manchester United would be forced to pay Jose Mourinho a whopping £12 million if they chose to sack him this season.

Pogba had been linked with a move to Barcelona due to his frosty relationship with Mourinho, who dropped the French World Cup victor on numerous occasions last season.

Meanwhile, Paul Scholes believes United lack the quality to compete for the Premier League, and says manager Jose Mourinho could possibly leave if the club fail to challenge for the title.

As forthright as the 29-year-old was in describing his views on what his club need to do going forward, he did seem happy their marquee signing to date - the Brazilian midfielder Fred, who joined in a £53M deal earlier in the summer from Shakhtar Donetsk. When Sir Alex Ferguson was there, they got them over the line but when David Moyes went, he couldn't get players over the line and in the end, he got Everton players because he knew them and could sign them. They [Manchester City] have been playing some great football. "Now it is time to prove it, to fight for the top spots, and I think this is the season to do it".

Pogba explained his side of the incident after the game and said he would not always be taking penalties for United this season.

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester tonight. One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie but the perception of people is that it's true.

Indeed Mourinho's side has struggled to match their spending sprees from the last couple of seasons.

"If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour".
