Manchester United will be without Champions League for the upcoming 2016-17 season, but that does not seem to be the main priority for the new manager José Mourinho who has insisted that the club will be looking to win the league title straight away.
There will be a lot of expectations of the Portuguese manager, who is well-known to win league titles quite comfortably. Jose Mourinho is one of the few managers in the world to have won league titles in England, Spain, and Italy. He is known as a great tactician, but even he has recognised the need for signing many new players.
United have already brought in the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while the big-money summer signing is expected to come in the form of Paul Pogba from Juventus. United are in advanced negotiations for the Frenchman, who left the club a few years ago for as little as £ 800,000. Now, though, United have to shell out around 110 million euros in order to bring him back. Mourinho, though, sees Pogba as the addition that will help United ward off the threat from Manchester City, who are now managed by Mourinho’s biggest nemesis Pep Guardiola. Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, United have not won the league title.
