Mourinho said he hoped that the World Cup experience would bring a further boost for the game in Russian Federation, given the investments it had made in infrastructure and new stadiums for the tournament.

United are, however, close to agreeing the sale of Daley Blind to Ajax, the club from which the versatile Holland worldwide was signed four years ago.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been working as a pundit for Russia Today.

Mourinho said frankly: "Perisic went from Croatia, goes to Dortmund, goes to Wolfsburg, goes to Inter - I don't know why he didn't come to Manchester when I wanted him".

Full-back Matteo Darmian has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford but has travelled as part of the squad.

However, Mourinho has identified that Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic would add some much-needed quality for the United front line along with Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, and Anthony Martial.

It seems Mourinho has now stepped-up his interest as TeamTalk are citing a report from French outlet Euro United as saying that United are in advanced negotiations over a deal to sign Perisic. "But he is also physical, very physical, fantastic in the air".

Shaw has seen his Manchester United career falter in recent seasons, with Jose Mourinho repeatedly and publicly chastising the left-back for his subpar attitude and conditioning.

And Pogba, who played a key role throughout the tournament, scored France's third goal to put the game further beyond Croatia's grasp. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
