The Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is ready to cash in on Marcos Rojo and Eric Bailly in a bid to get in a new centre-half in the month of January, however, the Alexis Sanchez and club are scared that they are stuck together.
The continuing battles of Mourinho came as Nicky Butt, the head of Academy of United accepted the overall 3-1 derby defeat to the team of Manchester City on Sunday had given one more chilling reminder of just how distance behind their home rivals the club had come down.
The loss in the match left the United languishing in eighth, and it is 12 points behind leaders that is City. It is seven short to the top four and along with a depressing goal difference, and Butt, United’s 1998/99 treble-winning side a member, left Mourinho and the hierarchy of club under no illusions regarding the challenges that they would face in the coming days.
But while addressing the international player care conference in London in a candid admission about the supremacy of City said: “I believe that every now and then you stand up against a team and that is too good for you. Every time you have to hold your hands up except by saying that they are better players than us and better team than us, to be honest, this is extremely nice for every team in the Premier League, and they are as excellent as any team in Europe.”
