Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho blunt in his assessment of Raheem Sterling

Jose Mourinho has challenged Paul Pogba to realise why he was so good for France at the World Cup as he looks to provoke the midfielder into replicating that form for Manchester United.

"To win the World Cup can only be a positive".

Sanchez was convicted of tax fraud in Spain and accepted a 16-month suspended jail sentence in February.

TeamTalk reported over the weekend that United are in advanced talks with Inter over a possible deal to sign the 29-year-old and I think Perisic would be an excellent addition to their squad if the Red Devils could get something agreed. "It's unbelievable, fantastic", said Mourinho in Los Angeles, at the start of United's USA pre-season tour. The club also have an option for a one-year extension of his contract. I have to respect the United States authorities in their process and selection of visas.

What the World is Saying About Trump's Disastrous Meeting With Putin
But several Republicans who do not typically buck the President raised concerns, shocked by Monday's performance. Donald Trump is an "American patriot", not a traitor to his country, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says.

Jose Mourinho says "it is a shame" for the Premier League that the start date this season means many players at the World Cup in Russian Federation will not have enough rest time to be fit for the opening fixtures.

Watch Manchester United kick off the new Premier League season against Leicester on Friday, August 10, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Players involved in the World Cup have been extra time off and although Mourinho admits that presents some problems, he is keen for some of his fringe players to have the opportunity to impress. So I think the future for him in the French national team can only be brilliant.

"But everything is really bad". It's hard to say that to win the World Cup is not good for a player's career.

"I want to thank everyone - the managers, coaches, the medical department, everyone who helped me to settle in so quick at the beginning, of course my teammates and last but definitely not least the fans".

"If Alexis is not working with us for 15 to 20 days, it will be very bad", Mourinho said.

United are in Los Angeles for their pre-season tour, and that gave Mourinho the chance to discuss his record purchase's displays.
