Man Utd back Mourinho with £80M January market budget

Predicted Man United XI vs CSKA Moscow

"Of course, he's a bit exhausted because it was a huge match at the weekend and just two days to recover for CSKA", Mourinho said at a press conference when asked if Pogba would feature.

In this week's entry he reflects on two wins over Watford and Arsenal, and looks ahead to our final Champions League group stage match against CSKA Moscow, and to the Manchester derby on Sunday.

"Of course, he's a bit exhausted because it was a huge match at the weekend and just two days to recover for CSKA". "He sometimes needs some very hard work on the muscular area which supports (the) knee which had problems". To work really hard for a certain period of time, he can not play in these days, so we chose to do that after Watford.

Lindelof will be hoping to remain on his upward curve heading into the busy festive period, with United set to follow their CSKA clash with a derby date at home to Manchester City. "But I could make a surprise and one who isn't available may play". "I'm learning every day and I work hard every day to try to help the team". He is on his cycle of work divided between the gym and the pitch. He'll be out again tomorrow (Tuesday), but back to normal work after CSKA.

Pogba was sent off in that game but will start on Tuesday, while Mourinho revealed Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Ibrahimovic will all miss out. He plays tomorrow. Of course he's a bit exhausted because it was a huge match in the last weekend and just two days to recover for CSKA.

"He's [Shaw] working to have an opportunity and sooner or later, the opportunity will arrive".

Mourinho wants to boost his squad with new faces, including a left-back, ring winger and creative midfielder in the No 10 role.

"Selected tomorrow - for sure. There are other clubs also involved in the qualification and I need to keep a certain balance in the team", Mourinho said. To start or be on the bench I can not answer'.

Sources close to the 22-year-old, however, have also indicated the former Southampton academy graduate will not make things easy for bosses at Old Trafford, who earns £130,000 per week and is owed £8m in wages on the remainder of his deal.
