Zidane is set on succeeding Mourinho on Manchester United's bench

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and superstar Paul Pogba have reportedly had yet another bust up at the Red Devils, amid rumours the Frenchman wants to join FC Barcelona.

Fred moved to the Red Devils for a fee believed to be in the region of £52 million in June and ended up being Jose Mourinho's only big-money signing of the summer.

I know some United fans want a more expansive attacking game and I can understand their frustrations, but the result is the most important thing especialy at the start of the season, and you need to be tactically clever.

"Since he's come back, he's been a nightmare, as a player, irrespective of whether you're happy or unhappy, there are ways to conduct yourself".

In Thursday's reports it was also suggested that Pogba had hit back by telling Mourinho he should go through his agent Mino Raiola if he planned to speak to him formally again.

With Eden Hazard returning the starting line-up, I see the Blues edging this one, probably 1-0.

"But it looks like it's not going to end in a transfer, and for me it is good news".

Even if Pogba wanted to leave as Martial does, United have no intention of selling contracted talents and certainly not now, when replacements are hard to sign. It offers a glimmer of optimism following Mourinho's pre-season gloom.

"But if I play Scott (McTominay) I play two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".

"I repeat, I want him to play well, I want him to play for that team, the fans, and that is what it is". The best players are needed and the club maintain the squad is strong enough to challenge for the Premier League title.

The rumour comes from a reliable source and this isn't the first time that Zidane has been linked with Manchester United. United's manager is said to have berated Pogba during a heated 20-minute meeting in his office. "He's always an option for us, he's always a reliable player".

The 25-year-old has now explained to reporters (via the Daily Star) why he ended up moving to Old Trafford in June.
