Jose Mourinho has a couple of weeks before he gets his players back after the international break, and this gives him time to think about the problems and their possible solutions.

The Manchester United boss has been under severe criticism this season, and with his team looking far away from being a title winning one, it might be time to change things around.

Getting a center-back in the summer was the one wish that the boss did not see get fulfilled, and that seems to be haunting his plans for the campaign.

The Red Devils have already lost 2 of their 4 games so far, and a weak defense can be easily pointed towards to direct the blame.

When asked to talk about his shocking claim, Durham said: “All they can go with is free agents and John Terry is exactly that. John Terry would get into the Manchester United team ahead of Smalling, Jones, Rojo.

“I think he’d get in ahead of Lindelof. So think this through. Think about the crisis Man United have got at the back. Think about how well Jose Mourinho knows John Terry. Think that one through.”
