Former Chelsea star Tony Cascarino believes Unai Emery requires more signings at Arsenal before the team can frequently challenge for the top-four positions.

Jose Mourinho was believed to have a heated conversation with Pogba after his dismal showing against the Saints and as everyone expected, the Frenchman was not included in the starting XI in the games that followed.

DAILY STAR recently published a story in which they quoted one of the Red Devils’ sources who said that there have been quite a few United players who have not lived up to their reputation and have been off color in the ongoing season just like Pogba, but the manager has not been as harsh on anyone as he has been on Pogba and that’s something which the Frenchman is not feeling very good about.

TalkSPORT host confirms Manchester United are in talks with Zinedine Zidane

TalkSPORT present Tony Cascarino has revealed that Manchester United have already made contact with Zinedine Zidane regarding the head coach position following their poor start to the 2018/19 campaign. The Red Devils have simply faulted during Jose Mourinho’s third season in charge of the club and they are currently 10th on the table after just seven league games.

As a result, there has been plenty of speculation concerning Mourinho’s position with the club’s hierarchy and according to Cascarino, United are deemed to have already held a dialogue with Zidane regarding the managerial role, he said: “If I’m brutally honest, I think he’ll be gone very soon. I think the talks have already happened and I was led to believe Zidane has already met United from a source that has told me many things over the years that have come true. I think that will happen, and I think it should happen now because United are 10th in the league. Yes, only seven games have gone, but United have served up tripe in the sort of football we have witnessed!”
