Jose Mourinho Confirms Talks With Zlatan Ibrahimovic Over Manchester United Return

Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham Newcastle

GETTY Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham face Newcastle on Sunday

He did it twice during his time at Chelsea, throwing his Premier League winners' medal to the crowd in 2005 and giving away his losers' medal after the 2015 Community shield.

The Belgium international, 24, scored nine goals in his first nine appearances against West Ham for former team Everton before the east London club finally kept him at bay in a 0-0 draw last April.

But Leicester collapsed as substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud scored inside the final seven minutes to snatch a dramatic three points for Arsene Wenger's men. According to Dawson, the Manchester outfit have refused to meet Inter's asking price for the winger.

United's game with West Ham on Sunday afternoon (4pm kick off) will close the opening round of this season's Premier League fixtures.

No one knows what Zlatan wants.

He said: "I think the champions are the team to beat - they weren't champions for nothing".

Alongside assistant coaches Rui Faria and Ricardo Formosinho, the United manager wore an Adidas tracksuit and appeared relaxed ahead of the return of the Premier League. That would be impressive as both are world-class players. It's a big stadium and the pressure will be on him to perform. But he insists, despite that, the title is a more realistic target. And United give him a good chance of doing so.

It may be recalled here that United have already bolstered their squad with the addition of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof. The side scoring the most has won on six occasions. "We needed to do that because four or five players were out of contract".

The lucky Manchester United fan who got Jose Mourinho's UEFA Super Cup second-place medal is a Nigerian kid named Deji. All but Tottenham have made at least one significant summer purchase for their attack, though Chelsea have banished their top scorer while Liverpool and Arsenal are desperately trying to keep hold of theirs.
