Mahrez becomes late transfer target for Mourinho

Mahrez becomes late transfer target for Mourinho”

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - AUGUST 26: Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City and Daley Blind of Manchester United battle for possession during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Leicester City at Old Trafford on August 26, 2017 in Manchester, England.

However, United's board is resisting Mourinho's desire to lure Mahrez away from the Foxes as they remain unconvinced that he is worth such a fee and, coupled with Leicester's desire not to sell, will see Mahrez remain with the 2015/16 champions for the first half of this term at least.

Leicester threatened to frustrate United when Kasper Schmeichel saved a penalty by Romelu Lukaku early in the second half, but the hosts' pressure told in the last 20 minutes.

This season, he has so far featured in 3 games and provided 2 assists. They walked off having had almost 70 percent possession and 14 attempts of goal with Paul Pogba, freed to go forward with the insurance of Nemanja Matic behind him, had six on his own.

When the draw was revealed, the major talking point was the fact that the duo could meet each other in the semi-final. Also missing are Canadian Milos Raonic and Japan's Kei Nishikori , both sidelined with wrist injuries .

And Mourinho said in his postgame news conference: "This is about the quality of the players because they are good".

Though there is still a slight immaturity to his game, where he holds onto the ball too long or tries a skill in the wrong area, Paul Pogba is growing into his role as a superstar footballer at Manchester United.

United's second consecutive 4-0 win was not a fair reflection compared to what happened on the pitch.

Rashford scored only three minutes after coming in.

It found that Hoegel had administered lethal injections to patients at a hospital in Oldenburg, where he worked from 1999 to 2001. Numerous killings could have been prevented if local health authorities had acted on their suspicions at the time, Mr Kühme said.

It may be that Martial and Rashford are locked in a battle to start all season. Fellaini, a David Moyes buy from Everton who is now on his third manager at the club (four if you count Ryan Gigg's interim regime), is a player who has been much maligned by the Old Trafford faithful over the years. That paid off today, as Fellaini provided the second goal to kill the game.

Mahrez, meanwhile, handed in a transfer request back in May but Leicester have so far fended off any interest form potential suitors.

Earlier in the day, we covered a report (via Don Balon) claiming that Mourinho is willing to splash the cash and sign Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.
