Woodward: 'Jose and team fully united'


Pogba missed Sunday's derby defeat and his absence was cited as an excuse by Mourinho in the afterermath, but former United player Alan Tonge believes that despite his obvious talents, the Frenchman just isn't producing the goods often enough.

Bailly has grown frustrated with his plight at Manchester United, with chances not coming his way despite the team's defensive struggles, and is believed to be open to an exit in January in search of regular playing time. "He feels important to Manchester United", super agent Raiola said.

They are set to go head-to-head with Manchester United and Manchester City for Juventus' £50-million-rated full-back Alex Sandro and they are leading the chase for £70 million winger Christian Pulisic, 20, from Borussia Dortmund.

"There are too many players who seem to be out of form or not stepping up". We will fight until the end and we'll get late goals as we have done over the last few games. "Nothing had really changed, except for maybe the team and the manager, but the rest of the club was the same", the 25-year-old said. So we're happy because it's a win that gives us a lot.

Jose Mourinho will be relieved to hear this news as Lindelof has been vital to United's success in recent weeks.

Argentina legend Diego Maradona says he'd like to visit Manchester United in order to learn from manager Jose Mourinho, whom he describes as "the best manager in the world" ahead of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Woodward also said United have the "financial strength" to get back to contending for the biggest trophies at home and overseas.

"We're the real United, also in the bad moments, because we have to recognise that we've had bad moments and we have to improve".

The current D.C. United forward scored 23 goals in the 2006/2007 season, the third highest goalscoring season of his United career, but he noted that even during the campaigns where he was scoring goals, he still battled confidence issues.
