Manchester City Make Enquiry About Key Barcelona Player
Crespo is also backing Wayne Rooney to be player of the season, thanks to the "romantic story" of the return to his boyhood club Everton. Twelve months with a new team and Mourinho has consistently proven himself to be the master at figuring out where weaknesses lie and how to turn it into a winning machine.
The Mexico worldwide, nicknamed Chicharito, enjoyed a productive four-year spell at United from 2010, scoring 59 goals in more than 150 appearances as the club won two league titles and reached the 2011 Champions League final.
Far too many draws against weaker sides proved to be their downfall, and in the end, they needed to win the Europa League in order to qualify for the Champions League. I don't think I am going to win because I always win in the second season - not at all.
The United boss is aiming higher this time and wants the 35-year-old to be a part of that effort.
Manchester United haven't won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson won his 13th and final top-flight crown back in 2013.
Such absentees means the United boss does not believe they have advanced hugely compared with this time past year, but he retains hope of making a fourth summer signing.
That is the "minimum demand and undeniable truth" for United agrees Jackson in the Guardian.
He has been given the funds to inject quality into his team, to address the problems David Moyes and Louis van Gaal failed to correct.
The 24-year-old played a major role in the Reds' success in the 2016/17 campaign as his 42 appearances across all competitions saw him feature on both wings regularly. And he has already matched that amount this summer.
United have invested heavily on the signings of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof in the transfer window, while championsChelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal have also spent large sums. Midfielder Davy Propper is the big name among them, whilst former Valencia man Matthew Ryan is a highly rated goalkeeper.
"Twenty five per cent [left] means one of four, and we've got a central defender that can play in many other positions, which is important", said Mourinho during his press conference, ahead of the club's first Premier League game of the season against West Ham.
The Portuguese coach concedes his squad is "similar" to the one he took charge of last season.
Glass half full: Lacazette should add a new dimension to the Gunners attack and, without the pressure of Champions League football, the club are free to focus on the Premier League. With a good VAR system it would be 1-1 and extra-time.
But now Hughton believes the Spaniard can put those experiences to good use to push his side firmly into title contention.
