Of a new deal, Mourinho said: "Possible, it's open". However, he suffered a season-ending injury in April and the club didn't trigger a contract extension. He scored 28 times in all competitions, per, helping United win the EFL Cup in the process.

But Mourinho admitted during his first news conference of the summer at the club's UCLA training base that he wants two more players.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that he always got on well with Romelu Lukaku despite selling him to Everton during their time together at Chelsea.

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player".

"We don't have our door closed". "We are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof, we need more". We want four so it's 50 per cent of the job done. "It is hard. Matic is a Chelsea player, we must respect the Chelsea owner and the Chelsea manager. Everything is so hard".

Real Madrid and United were warring over who had the best facilities, the best hotel and who would use which pitch.

"They have signed a player with vast potential but he has a lot to prove".

'He's a striker and normally strikers score goals and the reason why he was so important and hard to get is what he did in the Premier League'.

Ibrahimovic's departure from Old Trafford after a single season at the club was confirmed on Friday with the release of United's retained list.

The French worldwide bagged a shitload of goals last season, albeit 10 from the spot, scoring 28 goals in just 30 league games, as well as seven in 12 during Lyon's Europa League run.

"It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic told photographers yesterday that a big announcement on his future is coming soon. [He] didn't want to hide behind such an unbelievable injury. That would be easy. He was not happy with the way he finished the season, of course with his first European trophy, but not playing. But he made the challenge for him to continue at the highest level.

"We opened our door for him to recover with us", he said. Nonetheless, failure is not an option for Wenger, this year, who may find he does not like the answers to any probing analysis of last season.
