Pogba and Ibra update
07.45: Jose Mourinho has claimed he will welcome Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic back into the fold shortly.
Pogba has been missing since the middle of September while Ibrahimovic is yet to play this season.
But Mourinho thinks they could both be ready for the Christmas period.
“We have the group of players which are the ones that we hope will recover as soon as possible,” he told MUTV.
“They have to work every day but they are in a good position now. Pogba, Ibra, Rojo, Fellaini.
“They are in good positions so I think we can go into this part of the season, the Christmas period, and after, in a strong position.”
07.30: Sections of the Atletico Madrid dressing want Antoine Griezmann out – and think the club should cash in on Manchester United’s interest.
Griezmann was linked with United in the summer, only staying in Madrid after their transfer ban was upheld.
He signed a new contract to improve his terms but didn’t extend his deal and has a fixed release clause around the £90m mark.
And his team-mates think the time is right to sell.
Griezmann flirted with Manchester United in the summer, at one point claiming there was a 6/10 chance he would make the move.
The 26-year-old has scored just twice in La Liga and once in the Champions League this season.
Atletico are down in fourth and are on the verge of being knocked out of the Champions League.
Griezmann has gone missing in big games and was poor against Chelsea in the defeat despite scoring from the spot.
And Don Balon claim his team-mates are fed up with him and think the club should cash in on him in if Manchester United are willing to pay £90m.
Diego Godin, Gabi and Juanfran are said to be frustrated with his attitude and think he’d be better off leaving.
Fellaini to Besiktas
07.15 Marouane Fellaini is on Besiktas’ radar as his United future remains uncertain.
Fellaini, out of contract in the summer, is a target for the club confirmed official Metin Albayrak.
“Transfer plans never end, we are always working,” he said.
“Fellaini is on our list, we have made efforts to sign him but not just him.
“He is not the only player we scouted, our scouting team watched 20 games live this week.
“We are keeping tabs on several players.
“The club has plans for Turkey and Europe, there are negotiations.
“We want to make the signing for the winter transfer window or for the end of the season.”
De Gea/Varane swap
07.00: Jose Mourinho is ready to sell David De Gea – if Real Madrid send Raphael Varane they other way.
Spanish website Don Balon claims that Manchester United are now edging towards a state of mind where they will be happy to let him go.
De Gea signed a new contract shortly after his failed move in 2015.
De Gea’s stock continues to rise with his stunning performances helping the Red Devils to second in the Premier League table.
But, with Real Madrid circling, a parting of the ways could be in the offing.
However, Don Balon say Mourinho will cash in – but only on one condition.
The 54-year-old supposedly wants Madrid to cough up a huge amount of money and include Raphael Varane in any potential deal.
