Man United's Mourinho: Prem title more realistic than last season

This season, however, each of the Premier League's top seven will play in Europe, which Mourinho believes is a leveller.

The 35-year-old Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals before a serious knee injury brought his first season at Old Trafford to a halt in April.

Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United chiefs to offer Gareth Bale a huge contract worth £500,000 a week in order to try and tempt him into a transfer to Old Trafford, according to reports in the British media.

United have since delivered on three of his requests, bringing in Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic, but leaving Mourinho still in need of a wide player.

One of which was against West Ham, United's opponents on Sunday as the new Premier League season gets underway.

AC Milan and LA Galaxy are among the clubs reportedly interested in signing the veteran, but Mourinho is keen to add the striker to his forward options when he is fit again, although there is no rush to confirm a deal.

Despite United suffering a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday night, the youngster was ecstatic with his surprise gift from Mourinho.

The 36-year-old Swiss will next face unseeded Dutchman Robin Haase, a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 victor over Diego Schwartzman of Argentina. Shapovalov became the youngest player to reach the Round of 16 of a Master Series tournament since Nadal in 2004 at Miami.

'Obviously [we wanted] a player for another position playing from the sides, but we have players and if you can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have people that we trust and we go for it'.

The Spanish midfielder was sensational last season, picking up the club's Player of the Year Award after a series of wonderful performances on their way to the Europa League crown.

Sixth place in his first season won't have pleased fans by any means, but a European trophy as well as securing Champions League football for this term will allow the Portuguese manager to be forgiven.

Hernandez is now likely to make his Premier League debut for the Hammers against his former club and said of the Red Devils ahead of the game, "It was a great experience [there] ... only happiness". Additionally, Mourinho wants Mkhitaryan to run with the ball. My club is doing 75% of what I initially asked very well. "Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces".

"I don't think I am in a position to be moaning and crying".

"So we stayed to watch it and the next minute Jose was walking towards us - I didn't know what he was going to do and then he stretched out to give the medal to him".
