Juventus willing to bid £125m for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba?

The beleaguered boss continues to cling onto his job

After enduring their worst start to a season in 28 years Manchester United have sacked Jose Mourinho and the Premier League giants have dropped a massive hint over the future managerial appointment.

After an incredibly troublesome third year at Old Trafford, the Portuguese has left his post as manager and the Red Devils will look to appoint a caretaker boss for the remainder of the season.

United now sit sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind English Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Even qualifying for the Champions League looks beyond United this season, with Mourinho's former Chelsea side 11 points ahead in fourth place. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

They finished their Champions League campaign with defeat to Valencia, sit comfortably outside the Premier League top four and were eliminated by Derby County in the Carabao Cup.

"I've been there, players start forming cliques, in the hope of getting their manager sacked and that's what we're seeing now at Old Trafford", Ince reportedly stated.

According to the Washington Post, Mourinho joined Manchester United in 2016 after successful runs at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Therefore, if United opted to fire Mourinho and hire a new gaffer before the end of the January transfer window, the Daily Record reports that it would cost the club a reported £24million!

Even more galling for United fans was to see fierce rivals City and Liverpool under Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp marrying success with entertaining football. Jose Mourinho, United manager for the last two and a half seasons, was gone.

Mourinho lasted for 2 years at United and won two titles, the English League Cup and the Europa League in his first season.

The club said in a statement he had left with immediate effect. He said: 'It's not that I don't feel for him. It's fair to assume Mourinho would have had the same condition in his contract too, which means that United's decision to relieve him of his duties will have been a costly exercise indeed. What is the point of bringing in the most flawless manager to lead United forward only to then hamstring him with misguided direction from the boardroom which has already proven to only hamper rather than help the club's fortunes?
