Why Alexis Sanchez's huge Manchester United deal will damage smaller clubs

The Portuguese coach is close to extending his contract as Manchester United manager, with both club and Mourinho confident that a deal will soon be signed.

However, United are seemingly willing to offer Alexis Sanchez a massive weekly wage if he makes the move from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Shaw has played eight of United's last 11 games including five in a row and his return to form and fitness has impressed Mourinho to such an extent that he has shelved his interest in Tottenham's Danny Rose. Ex-Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke has leapt to the defence of Romelu Lukaku, who has received criticism from some quarters for his performances during his debut season at Old Trafford.

Sanchez, who has been at Arsenal since 2014, was left out of the English Premier League game against Bournemouth on Sunday because of the speculation over his future.

Jones is happy to take whatever approach Mourinho sees fit and believes that results this season prove that United's manager has his side on the right track.

But Mourinho, who has been linked with a move for Tottenham's Danny Rose, says the England global is in such good form that there are few better in his position.

He may not be everyone's cup of tea, but Jose Mourinho is here to stay, or so it seems.

Seventh-placed Burnley have not won a game since December 12 previous year with three defeats and three draws in their last six Premier League fixtures. He could be a very important player for us.

Six years on, Jones sees no reason why United can not do the same under Jose Mourinho, so long as they continue to capitalise on any City slip-ups.

"I'm really happy. You [the media] like the transfer market but I can say that in this moment I don't see many left-backs better than this Luke Shaw".

United are second in the table this season, albeit 12 points behind leaders Manchester City following the 3-0 win over Stoke on Monday.
