Mourinho Plans United Clearout

Manchester United is yet to win a league match in four games

As is mentioned in many of the other backpages today, Jose Mourinho is ready to get ruthless with his Manchester United team and start cutting the squad already. After watching Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Chris Smalling, he has decided that Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin in the answer. Godin is wanted for January.

Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Michael Carrick, Memphis Depay, Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Phil Jones are also for the chop.

Paper Rounds’ view: It should have been a long time ago.

It was clear under Louis van Gaal that none of Manchester United’s defence had any business being first choice at a club that wanted to win the Premier League and succeed in Europe.

Mourinho might be surprised just how poor his defence is, given he only saw fit to buy Eric Bailly in the summer, but he is right to keep going with the squad overhaul. The early goals they have conceded recently are preventing their hobbled attack even more.
