JOSE MOURINHO has fired another barely-disguised dig at Ed Woodward by hailing the way Juventus land top transfer targets.

Manchester United boss Mourinho was gushing about the way the Turin giants are run following an in-depth conversation with the Italian club’s owner Andrea Agnelli.

Meanwhile, Harry Maguire is back on the club’s radar and the club had some very special visitors.

BACK FOR MOUR

MANCHESTER UNITED are willing to shell out £60million for Harry Maguire in January.

The England centre-half, 25, signed a new five-year deal with Leicester in September after interest from Jose Mourinho’s men.

SPECIAL WELCOME

MANCHESTER UNITED boss Jose Mourinho welcomed the Thai footballers who were trapped in a cave to Carrington.

The 12 youngsters – aged between 11 and 16 – and their coach spent 17 days underground before being saved by an international effort.

£380M WELL SPENT

THINGS have apparently got so bad for Jose Mourinho that he talked of bringing Michael Carrick out of retirement to play up front against Juventus.

The Manchester United boss was of course being sarcastic — it was the Special One’s way of making a point about his lack of alternatives to the out-of-form Romelu Lukaku.

FREE TO GO?

MANCHESTER UNITED star David De Gea has failed to reassure Jose Mourinho he is committed to the club.

Last night, SunSport revealed the Special One is worried about losing his star stopper on a free transfer to Juventus.

LIN WITH A SHOUT

JESSE LINGARD has returned to Manchester United training the day after Jose Mourinho blamed him for causing his own injury lay-0ff.

Old Trafford boss Mourinho revealed the England man, 25, is back at Carrington having previously played through a groin injury picked up at the World Cup.

‘NO DOUBT’

JOSE MOURINHO will return to Real Madrid “sooner or later”, according to former Bernabeu president Ramon Calderon.

The Manchester United boss is under increasing pressure this season and he has been linked with a sensational return to the La Liga giants.

NO SHOW

MANCHESTER UNITED are set to fine a group of disgruntled players who refused to attend a sponsorship event, according to reports.

Members of the first-team squad were scheduled to take part in a session for one of United’s commercial partners on Thursday.


THE SPECIAL GLUM

JOSE MOURINHO refuses to smile in a selfie with fans as he leaves the Lowry hotel ahead of the clash against Everton.

The Manchester United manager has had little to feel happy about in the past week.

BAD LUK

MOURINHO has revealed Lukaku WILL start up front because he has no other options.

The 25-year-old is set to continue to start up front, despite the fact that he has scored no goals in eight games for his club.

£380m WELL SPENT

THINGS have apparently got so bad for Jose Mourinho that he talked of bringing Michael Carrick out of retirement to play up front against Juventus.

The boss was, of course, being sarcastic, but it was the Special One’s way of making a point about his lack of alternatives for out-of-form Romelu Lukaku.

FINE & DINE

MANCHESTER UNITED’S corporate renegades will be fined by the club for swerving a money spinning function over the club’s embarrassing travelling gaffes, according to reports.

United have turned up late to their last two Champions League home fixtures, against Valencia and Juventus, and scraped just a point.
