Manchester United: 2017/18 Season Preview

Manchester United: 2017/18 Season Preview

Manchester United have had an eye-catching summer as they have made three high-profile signings to date and hope to make more before the end of the season. In his first season in charge, Jose Mourinho managed to win two trophies and has taken the club back into the Champions League, but an improvement is needed in the league if he is to secure his own position. United finished 6th last season and didn't come close to a title challenge. A …

May the Fors be with Mourinho?

Once the news of Manchester United allegedly contacting the agent of RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg were perpetrated by Calciomercato.it, I switched my focus to two very specific questions which I needed answers to - and one of them is not how good the player is/has been at his previous club or whether he could fit in at Manchester United because that could wait until the information is more concrete - it's rather wet cement at this stage. Why Emil …

Let Us Talk About Nemanja Matic and Manchester United

Manchester United are back in the thick of stories that continue to divide opinion among fans - particularly after yesterday's breaking news that Mourinho is very close to re-signing Nemanja Matic from his former club Chelsea for a fee in the region of £40-million.

Where Would James Rodriguez Fit in at Manchester United?

Where Would James Rodriguez Fit in at Manchester United?

There has been a lot of talk in recent days that Manchester United are leading the race for James Rodriguez. Sky Sports reported that the Colombian international has been offered to the Europa League finalists and Sky Bet then went on to suspend betting on the transfer.

Mourinho's United signings: The good, the bad and the ugly

It's no secret that Manchester United spent big in the summer in an attempt to recapture the success which had made them one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Jose Mourinho was appointed as manager in May 2016 and he got straight to work, signing Eric Bailly in the hope of improving United's central defence.

Why Manchester United are Right to Target Willian

Why Manchester United are Right to Target Willian

According to ESPN, Manchester United are interested in bringing Chelsea winger Willian to the club this summer. The recent improvement at Old Trafford suggests that the Portuguese manager is making progress, but he will want to recruit several players this summer to help his team become title challengers once again. He previously worked with the Brazilian at Chelsea and believes that the winger can add some much-needed experience, pace and goal threat to the United attack. Ed Woodward has been …
