Paul Scholes - I don't see Manchester United challenging in Premier League

Man Utd news Why Paul Pogba dropped Jose Mourinho rift hint- BBC Sport pundit

In just two-and-a-half-years, the Frenchman guided Real to a hat-trick of Champions League crowns and a La Liga title before leaving for pastures new.

Diogo Dalot is set to make a return to full training this week ahead of Manchester United's clash against Brighton on Sunday evening, according to a report in England.

Since the shock resignment at Real, Zidane has been linked with the Qatar national team job and a technical advisory role with former club Juventus in before the speculation was quickly dismissed.

Manchester United's lack of new signings combined with the uncertainty surrounding the team's strategies and form gives the club a very small chance of challenging for the Premier League title, former midfielder Paul Scholes has said.

However, Shaw was named in the starting lineup for Friday's opening match of the new Premier League season and repaid his manager by scoring his first ever senior goal - one which proved to be the victor for United.

This is despite finishing 19 points behind Manchester City.

Robbie Keane: Mohamed Salah found his rhythm under Jurgen Klopp
Nobody talks about that afterwards. "It's not the first final he's lost, (maybe) he wants to use that as an excuse for losing". Perhaps Klopp will respond, although it is more likely he will brush this off and all will settle.until the teams meet again.

The former Chelsea boss, however, has been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer, primarily over their refusal to sign an experienced central defender before the transfer window closed last Thursday.

It is understood that United shortlisted Zidane as one of the candidates to replace Mourinho if the 55-year-old leaves at the end of the current season.

While the Portuguese manager has remained in charge of United, for the time being, this latest report states that Zidane would be willing to wait until the 2019/20 season to take over the reins at the Manchester club.

And Mourinho also disagreed with Woodward over the future of Anthony Martial, with the United manager ready to offload the French forward as opposed to wasting him on the bench.

A lot of the good feeling within the squad at the moment has been helped by the arrival of Fred, the Brazil midfielder who joined United in the summer, as he is seen as gregarious and outgoing and has brought a great deal to training.
