When Man United announced the appointment of Jose Mourinho, most of the supporter dubbed him to be their side’s saviour after the retirement of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.
However, it seems like the Portuguese does not share those feelings, and has reportedly held the club for ransom until his preferred signings are made.
Mourinho has been linked with a move to French giants Paris Saint-Germain, who want an upgrade of management from Unai Emery, for a very long time. But the former Real Madrid boss was quick to dismiss such claims, and insisted he’s at Old Trafford to stay.

“I see myself next season in Manchester United, I say I see myself [here] and, as I told you when I arrived, I am going to leave when the club wants me to leave because I have no intention to leave at all,” he said [via Express].
“My intention is to stay and to work and to improve and to bring the club to where the club belongs. I want to stay. I don’t see any reason not to stay.”
Ironically, latest reports from Don Balon claim that the United tactician is threatening departure should the club not agree to sign Chelsea fan-favourite N’Golo Kante.
In order to add Kante’s talent to their midfield, the Red Devil are reportedly ready to make an incredible club record bid of £154 million – a fee the Blues would probably find very difficult to reject.
Nevertheless, it is almost impossible to imagine Antonio Conte letting go of an important player, but he might just do so due to Danny Drinkwater’s return.
