Man Utd news: Jose Mourinho could join PSG because of demand to play young players

Mourinho’s Manchester United future beyond the current campaign is uncertain with reports suggesting the 54-year-old could be on his way to PSG at the end of the season.

Despite the Ligue 1 side flying under Unai Emery, it has been claimed that a number of players – including Neymar – are unhappy with life at the Parc des Princes.

Mourinho to PSG has been mooted in the past but it appears the French side are hellbent on making him their No1 for next season.

And the Sun say that the demands of Manchester United to field academy youngsters on a regular basis could force him out.

Mourinho has never been one to place his faith in youth.

At Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan there were just a few cases of success stories – with Alvaro Morata, Andreas Christensen and Jese Rodriguez the standout names.

During his time at United he has done his best to keep in line with the club’s traditions.

Marcus Rashford has been an ever-present, topping the club’s appearances chart last term with 53, ahead of the likes of Antonio Valencia and David De Gea.

Axel Tuanzebe, Scott McTominay and Joel Pereira have also garnered minutes under the Portuguese.

However, the Sun say Mourinho may be tempted by PSG’s policy instead.

The Ligue 1 giants are always more inclined to splash the cash rather than be patient and place their faith in players from the academy.

That was glaringly obvious over the summer where they paid £200million to prise Neymar away from Barcelona.

And PSG are also set to spent £166m on Kylian Mbappe at the end of the season, with the France international only joining on loan from Monaco in August.
