Manchester United's Eric Bailly makes key transfer decision


And Scholes, who won 11 Premier League titles with the Red Devils feels the current crop of players have allowed the most successful club in England become a joke to their rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

Yet, there may be some sympathy towards Mourinho for his comments after this game as he was under intense pressure due to reports on the eve of the win against Newcastle stating he would be fired that weekend no matter what the result against the Magpies. I didn't think he was a player that we needed, especially for that type of money.

"I'm thinking of a De Bruyne, Hazard or David Silva, a link player between the midfield and the forwards".

In the most recent game, Bailly was substituted after just 18 minutes against Newcastle United in the epic comeback win but Mourinho is said to have since contacted the Ivorian to reveal that the decision was tactical.

Of the former Arsenal player, he said: "I know he has qualities and has been a good player, but I never saw him as a United player".

Paul Scholes was particularly saddened at watching Liverpool and Manchester City do well at a time when United have been on a downward spiral.

"That shouldn't make any difference but it does", Scholes told ESPN.

However, it doesn't always work out for our aspiring youngsters, many of whom are released or sold to lesser clubs before they even have a chance to play for the first team.

"I've been there, being put out wide, and you hate it".

However, United have now scrapped those plans for the time being and will not resume their search with Mourinho at the helm, according to the Daily Mail. They have a set way of playing every week.

"When you looked at the West Ham game last week, it looked like the biggest sign of players not wanting to play for Jose, but I wouldn't sack him".
