Manager Jose Mourinho of Manchester United speaks during a press conference at Aon Training Complex on March 16, 2018 in Manchester, England.

Mourinho's next game will be against Carvalhal when Swansea travel to Old Trafford after the global break. "But Jose is never going to attack people he does not like".

If United are to stick with Mourinho this summer he will demand more money in order to compete with those around him and bringing in even three of these players would be a big statement, but a lot will depend on what happens with £89m man Paul Pogba.

LA Rams sign former Miami Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh for $14M
Suh was a three-time All-Pro in five seasons with the Detroit Lions before signing a six-year, $114m contract with Miami in 2015. There are numerous concerns about Suh: He is 31 and has been suspended twice and fined numerous times for dirty plays.

Pogba was dropped from the starting line-up for Manchester United's 2-0 FA Cup win over Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend along with Alexis Sanchez.

José Mourinho is said to have "called him personally" to offer him the €9m/year deal, which, coincidentally, is "exactly what he's asking Barcelona for to continue".

The uncertainty around Pogba underlines what has been a tricky time for the player since returning to United in 2016 for a then-record transfer fee of £89.3 million (A$164 million).

Towards the end of the week our temperatures will be in the mid 60's for daytime highs with partly cloudy skies. After Tuesday, the overall picture looks fairly dry with highs in the lower 50s for the rest of the work week.

Bookmakers are also of the opinion that Pogba will be staying put at Old Trafford - PaddyPower make him 1/5 to remain, which is an implied probability of 83%.

However, his agent, Mino Raiola, remains convinced Pogba was a "cheap" signing who should have cost twice as much. "I also went to Real Madrid", the Swans boss is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

Pogba is currently away with France on global duty, but it's now been revealed what Man Utd's senior players have been telling the midfielder to do - and stop doing.
