Mourinho confirms United in talks over Ibrahimovic return

Mourinho confirms United in talks over Ibrahimovic return

The football season is back in the United Kingdom and other countries across Europe, with Arsenal beating last season's Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea during the traditional pre-season Community Shield game.

"I think Manchester City are the team to beat", said Manchester United great Ryan Giggs in a recent Sky Sports column.

Having led United to League Cup and Europa League glory last season, Mourinho's challenge for the new campaign is to turn them into title contenders.

"I think we played everything so we don't lose this game", the Serbian said after a performance that thoroughly impressed Mourinho.

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

United's second top scorer in the league last season was Juan Mata with six, while Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and the now departed Wayne Rooney each managed five. The difference in Chelsea's profit/loss for example, over 30 wins was only £23.30, with their results becoming easier and easier to predict as the season went on, while Crystal Palace's unpredictability made their outcomes more hard to forecast.

He achieved the feat at Porto, Chelsea twice, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, with the only exceptions to the rule being his first two management roles, at Benfica and Uniao de Leiria, where he lasted less than a season in both cases.

"I dream of winning more titles with Chelsea, win a Champions League and Fifa Club World Cup with Chelsea and be one of the best players in the world, as well as win titles with Brazil and a World Cup".

"I don't say I know the league better because I have been in this league for a long time".

Man United's Mourinho: Prem title more realistic than last season
The football isn't as dreary as it was under David Moyes, and certainly not as boring as it was when Louis van Gaal was in charge. Chelsea winger Willian says "it would be a pleasure" if he were to have the opportunity to work with Jose Mourinho again.

Pep Guardiola takes his side to the South coast for a 5.30pm kick off and will be hoping to get off to a good start against one of the league's new sides.

"We have the confidence levels of a team who won a European competition".

United are one of the favourites to lift the trophy this time, despite finishing sixth and 24 points behind Chelsea last term.

Priomha Capital's CEO says that a solid season can be expected from West Ham, Everton and to a lesser extent Southampton as they should finish in the top 10 this season.

"It's not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him".

Mourinho signed Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic and he is still hopeful of landing a left-back and a winger before the end of the transfer window.

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

He said: "It's not because I have always done it that I am going to do it".
