Jose Mourinho demands three mega signings to continue as manager

Recommended Posts

Jose Mourinho demands three mega signings to continue as manager

The stunning claims coming out of Spain suggest the Special One’s relationship with club chiefs is tense following his comments about Paris St-Germain.

Don Balon say Mourinho wants Mats Hummels, Marco Verratti and Gareth Bale next summer to strengthen even further.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss also expects contract negotiations to speed up over his future, according to the reports.

United have improved this season but Mourinho still wants reinforcements to take his side to the next level.

The Red Devils kept the pressure on arch rivals Manchester City at the weekend as they beat Tottenham 1-0 at Old Trafford.

 

Pep Guardiola’s side are currently five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

United were busy in the transfer window this past summer as they added Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof to their ranks.

They also re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is expected to return from a long-term knee injury soon

 

United return to action tomorrow night when they take on Benfica at Old Trafford in the Champions League.

The Red Devils are top of Group A after winning all three of their matches so far this season in the competition.

Mourinho's side can qualify for the knockout stages with two games to spare as long as results go their way tomorrow evening.

This is classic Mourinho - if it’s actually true - self destruction clearing the path for his next venture. I would be surprised if PSG, would want Mourinho.

There's two ways of looking at this if true (I've been reading similar stories on this over the past four days from France, Italy and Spain)...

Firstly Mourinho is right in terms of taking Manchester United onto the next level.  Those particular names would strengthen United even more and nobody can dispute that...  It would give them an extremely strong squad in terms of top end quality.

On a second note...  He's already spent so much money which makes you think that this isn't a question of coaching skills but one of "buy until you succeed".  Although Guardiola has been doing the same, so any comparisons on that debate can be thrown at the two of them.

If anyone's read the interview inside L'Équipe's Sport & Style magazine this month which was held with Mourinho, then they'll understand even more on all of this and one of the main quotes I can offer from that interview is one where he lauds himself stating that he's so good that if he had his personal wish he'd love to take over a side he'd built himself ideally.  There's more relating to where the above is going but the whole interview is about himself and how he sees football in a monotone scope revolving around his own football universe.  It's a bit of a contradiction in terms because apart from Real Madrid where he was actually told to go and certain veteran players with weight couldn't work with him anymore (Chelsea included to an extent), he's departed because he's exhausted his methods and they stop functioning.

Anyway...  I could go on and on about a lot of this but relating to what this thread is actually about on such a short and dissected piece from an interview, I get what he's aiming at and what he wants to build is a side that's got variations all over the place.  You can't blame him for this and you also can't blame him for playing his hand in a card game which will get him more money contractually coupled with more power.

Not really the same, Pep had to spend because the team was full off old men (Zabaleta, Yaya, Sagna, Kolarov, Caba, Fernandinho, Navas, Clichy, Silva) that's 9 players in there 30's when Pep arrived so he has been forced to re-build a young squad that's not going to need any major change for a long time   ...Mourinho has spent £200 million on largely average players, why should United trust him with more money when they are already heavy in debt?

Nice try

Spending is spending no matter what way you try to justify it and there is such a silly amount going on players these days all over the place and for the most part they are not worth the price tag... 

City for example 

Jo 18M, then Robhino 32M ( when he thought he was signing for the other Manchester club :ph34r: ) Lescott 22M, Mangala 42M just to name a few... all wastes of money and folded quicker than superman on laundry day... 

The problem as I see it for Mourinho is that he does not have sides that play with flair because that's the way he sets up the team so it does not matter what types of players he buys he will always try and stifle any real creativity by making them think defensively. I am not saying he has not been successful with that formula in the past Porto then Chelsea as an example but he seems to have just one way of thinking and his lack of flexibility is normally his undoing not how many players he gets.. 

Other than that of course if the likes of City and PSG are throwing massive amounts of cash into the game then it stands to reason that others will try and follow suit just to keep up..

No, this doesn't wash!!

9 old men = Pep HAD to buy, he tried to make it work last season and look what happened, the team of old men he has just replaced was the 2012 title winning team  ...2nd point, there is only one Pro club in Manchester and it's not United, also his friends Elano & Jo was already at City and Robinho contacted them to ask about City before the move, anything else is just lies!

Granted we have paid well over the odds for players so will give you that one, some of the fee's have been crazy!  ....next point, Robinho was amazing at City, the team around him wasn't good enough at the time but he had some amazing games for us and I was sorry to see him go

Carry on :ph34r:

Mourinho's already having a breakdown. Not even half way through the season yet. All because people are praising Man City more. xD

funny how people hate Jose, well, i hate him for reasons that he always put the blame on others when he loses.    But i can't deny his winning percentage and the trophies he has won.      In comparison, City and Pep won nothing while Jose won some trophies and especially the Europa crown which handed them qualification for the UCL.

as for that article, there's nothing wrong if a manager request or dreams of making marquee signings.    But as for those three - fack Bale.    Yes, he is good, damn good, but fack, one knock and he is out for several months.

I can see the appeal to united in their pursuit of bale. Best British player. Good for the brand.
