Mourinho hopes World Cup players can feature in opener

Transfer news

But, Gianluca Di Marzio.com claim Barcelona have made the first move to sign Pogba by offering a player the club knows United would like.

Jose Mourinho wants Pogba back at Old Trafford and is hopeful he can replicate his form on the global stage for United. However, neither were Juventus two years ago when a return to Old Trafford was engineered.

However, the offer is much lower than you might expect for a player of the talent, age, valuation and profile of Paul Pogba.

Mourinho said in July that Pogba got better as the World Cup progressed because the stakes only got higher and higher, whereas the ups and downs of the club season caused him to lose focus.

Pompeo says Iran sanctions will be enforced
Authorities reported the first fatality among protesters, with the shooting of a man in Karaj, west of Tehran. Sanctions on trade in Iranian metals and automobiles go back into effect Monday.

However, United could rekindle their hopes of signing World Cup star Harry Maguire, with Leicester closing in on two centre-backs late in the window to safeguard themselves against losing their England worldwide. During France's World Cup celebrations, Pogba didn't forget about his former teammate. West Ham are close to completing the signing of Arsenal misfit Lucas Perez, while a £3m deal is close to being agreed for Fiorentina midfielder Carlos Sanchez (Daily Star).

Mourinho suggested Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba, and Romelu Lukaku could also play a part against Leicester. Despite being one of the Old Lady's most consistent performers since his arrival from Roma, the Bosnia Herzegovina midfielder has been linked with moves to several clubs this summer, including Chelsea and Manchester City.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is interested in signing Atletico Madrid star Jose Gimenez before the end of the transfer window on Thursday.

This could open the door for Dembele to leave the club which would bring Arsenal into the mix, especially after FC Barcelona have signed an effective replacement for Dembele in one-time Arsenal target, Malcom.
