Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: 'Few better left-backs than Luke Shaw'

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: 'Few better left-backs than Luke Shaw'

Jose Mourinho is set to extend his contract with Manchester United, sources have confirmed to ESPN FC.

The 54-year-old joined Manchester United back in 2016, succeeding Louis van Gaal, and is now half-way through his initial three-year contract.

The player was named by Woodward as one of the club's "dream signings" a year ago, but with that now becoming closer to reality amid talk he has been put up for sale for £84million, it may be that United executive vice-chairman has a new obstacle to overcome in Mourinho.

However, the Portuguese does expect Carrick to feature for him in a playing capacity down the stretch.

Pogba has not been on the losing side in a top-flight fixture since United were thumped 4-0 by Chelsea in October 2016, and Mourinho thinks the former Juventus man is relishing playing in a team that is increasingly revolving around him.

"(He's a) very important player for us.

American Madison Keys reaches fourth round of Australian Open
For Davis, as discouraging as it might be to have nothing to show for all that hard work, it was a very good tournament. The scheme repeated itself at 8-7, then Davis reached a turning point as she held to love to lead 10-9.

Sanchez is expected to sign a deal worth £500,000 a week at Old Trafford, more than the wage bill of the Burnley squad who will look to end their six-match winless run against Jose Mourinho's men at Turf Moor.

He added: "Overall I'm happy with the performances".

Mourinho is not just thinking about the future but the present too as he bids to sign Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez during the January transfer window.

"I think the idea of the transfer market in mid-season, normally I say that is to help clubs that didn't work well in the summer", Mourinho said. We are 12 points away and they have a big advantage, but we don't give up and we intend to win all of our remaining games and see where we are at in May.

"But if you have the chance to do (something for) some special players, some player in special circumstances, some player that you (try to) do in the summer and you have the chance to do it now, that's a special situation and you try to do it".
