Willian claims Jose Mourinho tried to sign him again this summer

The 35-year-old, who scored 28 goals for United last season, has been at the club during his rehabilitation and Mourinho said the Swede could feature in the second half of the season.

Ibrahimovic's contract at Old Trafford expired earlier this summer, but Manchester United have been linked with re-signing him and Mourinho makes no bones about the fact it is a possibility.

"The pictures of Manchester United players to me are, you know, wingers and wide men who are attacking, excitement, scoring good goals and Gareth Bale at Tottenham gave me that feeling and I thought when I joined Manchester United, the first player I wanted was Gareth Bale because he looked like a Manchester United player". "He's not ready to play tomorrow".

"It's not urgent, not desperate to have it done or not done", said Mourinho. He has put his trust in me and in my work, and I was very grateful to him.

"This season, in relation to the Champions League, it is not hard to motivate them against the top teams, I don't need to work at that level, so the motivation is more than enough".

Such absentees means the United boss does not believe they have advanced hugely compared with this time previous year, but he retains hope of making a fourth summer signing.

United have added striker Romelu Lukaku, midfielder Nemanja Matic and defender Victor Lindelof to their squad.

"So between the players we lost and the players we got, I think we are in a similar situation". "I understand the reality of the market, the numbers and my club by doing 75% of what I asked, the club did well".

Trump touts United States nuclear arsenal amid standoff with North Korea
The president has now gotten some support for his "Fire & Fury" threat against North Korea from some more moderate voices, including one-time opponent Senator Marco Rubio and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Trump thinks he should have been even harder on North Korea
Having members of your staff undercut your own secretary of state doesn't seem like a great way to do business. But Mr Gorka, a hardliner in the administration, told the BBC: "You should listen to the president".

"So I don't think I am in a position of crying, of moaning, of protesting". His next job, in Italy, saw Mourinho win a coveted treble, including the Champions League, in 2010, his second year with Inter Milan.

This week's remarkable interview by the latter has led links with Old Trafford to grow and Mourinho has not ruled out a move for a full-back this month.

'Twenty-five per cent means one of four. Victor can play right-back and can play central midfield.

"We have a central midfielder and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides".

"The other 25 percent (of the transfer targets) will be another player playing from the sides". He won the Premier League title in both his first and second season there.

"In the Premier League I'd say seven teams will fight for the title and 20 fight for the victory in every game, every match".

"It's different to any one of the other leagues".

"The club are also what you know". I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match we play.
