The Failed Transfer That Has Left Mourinho Unhappy With United Officials

When this season kicked off, supporters were delighted by the new and creative Manchester United they were witnessing week in and week out. Consistent 4-0 victories were becoming commonplace, goals were in plenty, and most players seemed to be functioning at an all-time best.

Fast forward to November, and things aren’t looking all too good. While the club still maintains a decent run of good games and a brilliant top position in their UEFA Champions League group table, there are still some issues to worry about.

Important amidst these is the daunting eight-point gap between the Red Devils and first-place Manchester City. To make matters worse, the side is just one loss away from losing their flimsy second spot to the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea.

More worrying is the unhappy mood of Jose Mourinho at the Old Trafford outfit. Over the weeks, much speculation has risen over a potential move to PSG for the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss.

And now, ESPN have shed some light over how all of this began, by revealing: “Sources have told ESPN FC that United should be taking the speculation surrounding Mourinho and PSG seriously, and that the French club will look to take advantage of any sign of disharmony between the former Chelsea manager and the Old Trafford hierarchy.”

The disharmony in question stems from United’s failure to land Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan. The winger was deeply desired by Mourinho, and the Portuguese boss is said to be furious that the management didn’t go ahead with the move, despite the quoted price being a mere £5 million more than what they were willing to pay.

In addition to that failure, he is said to have been very irked by the delay in the completion of the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea. All of this seems to have added up and taken the toll in the relations that the Special One shares with the management. If the same continues, there might indeed be a need for the club to worry.
