José Mourinho criticises national teams over Manchester United injuries

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says he is "not confident" the club will be retaining the services of goalkeeper David de Gea amid speculation linking him with a move to Juventus. The Frenchman added that he does not know if Alexis found it hard to say no to the Old Trafford outfit, but the style of play at the Emirates suited him better.

Should Sanchez depart - a scenario that is looking more and more likely - Man Utd will attempt to snap-up the in-demand Roma winger Cengiz Under, according to Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Serie A side have slapped a £44million price tag on the in-form 21-year-old.

The Portuguese tactician has always been a controversial figure, and he has carried on his antics - some on goal, whilst others accidentally - at the Old Trafford club as well. Not with the results, obviously, but I want to keep on going to try to help the team in the way that I can.

It was an expensive October global break for United as McTominay, Fellaini, Dalot and Sanchez all returned with injuries and Mourinho has criticised some of the countries for the way they handled the situations.

Quite where Sanchez would fit in at PSG, who already boast a forward line which includes Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani, remains to be seen, though it is also said that moves to Italy and Spain are possibilities should a move to the Parc des Princes fail to materialise.

"With some of them, the national teams were very professional with us and sent the players back so we could start the process early, but some of them weren't and kept the players so we didn't even know the dimension and the nature of the injuries".

"I always feel that every game", he said.

"We need to focus on ourselves really, not them. So that's why I didn't make any changes on the pitch".

"So in this moment we are not in the best moment to try to think about resting players or try to find solutions, the solution now is to play the players we have".

Mourinho has spent over £400 million at Manchester United and the Red Devils have the highest wage bill in the Premier League, having trumped City's salary offer to Alexis Sanchez in January to win the race for him.
