Man United board sends message to Mourinho over January transfer window

Man United board sends message to Mourinho over January transfer window

Manchester United's owners, the Glazer family, are increasingly convinced that Jose Mourinho will walk away from the club at the end of the season to take over at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Burkina Faso global striker spent four years on the books at Stamford Bridge, having previously snubbed the option of heading for Old Trafford.

He told Onze Mundial: "Manchester United?".

Traore was handed his Chelsea debut by current United boss Jose Mourinho in September 2015, shortly after being granted a work permit to kick-start his career in England.

All of that aside, call me a cynic, but this PSG speculation feels like Mourinho is pushing pretty hard to get a new long-term deal at United.

He faced fierce competition for places, though, and secured a €10 million switch to Lyon in the last transfer window.

Traore made 16 appearances during his spell in west London but, like so many before him, saw fit to part permanently with Antonio Conte's side after his efforts to nail down a regular first-team spot proved futile. I fought. I made it to the first-team, but it's almost impossible to become a regular starter at Chelsea for a product of the academy, and I wanted to play regularly. But, in Chelsea, for a player from the training centre, it's nearly impossible to impose yourself as a starter.

It's not the first time Traore has hit out at Chelsea's youth policy, saying last month: "Leaving was the best decision for me. I'm proud of what I did there before I left". "It's going well. I'd like to play more - that's going to come through my performances". Martial has scored six times this season for United, four of them from off the bench, but in an interview with French broadcaster SFR Sport, he admitted: "I prefer to start the game, I have more time to get myself into the game".
