Paul Scholes - I don't see Manchester United challenging in Premier League

Paul Scholes - I don't see Manchester United challenging in Premier League

The 46-year-old is now out of work since resigning as manager of Los Blancos in May just five days after winning his third consecutive Champions League trophy.

Paul Pogba wants to leave Manchester United for Barcelona even if his fractured relationship with manager Jose Mourinho can be mended.

Zidane was linked with the France manager's job but Didier Deschamps chose to continue in the role following their World Cup triumph.

Should he be willing to wait until the end of this season and make himself available to the Red Devils, there is every possibility that we could see him in the dugout at Old Trafford in the not so distant future.

The 16-year-old is set to head back to the United States where he will have trials at Atlanta United, Sporting Kansas City and Philadelphia Union.

However, the embattled United boss is adamant that last season's second place finish in the Premier League should be considered the club's biggest achievement in recent history.

The bridge was around 100 meters (328 feet) tall, according to Italian media, and crossed over railway tracks and some buildings. The local fire brigade said also victims were likely after the bridge collapsed at around 11.30am during torrential rainfall.

The French World Cup victor cast doubt over his Old Trafford future following United's 2-1 win over Leicester on Friday.

"I had a proposal from China too, but I didn't want to go there because I wanted to join United".

Many United fans are unhappy with Jose Mourinho's demeanour and style of play, with some looking for him to be replaced in what is - historically - a crucial third season for Mourinho's reign.

The opportunity to come in and manage a club such as Manchester United back to former glories is one which appeals to Zidane.

United will not sell Pogba, regardless of whether he hands in a transfer request.

TUKO.co.ke earlier reported that Martial was left on the bench in United's Premier League opener at Old Trafford against Leicester City.
