Mourinho eyes second season glory with United

Chelsea star confirms Man Utd talks

The Swedish star scored 28 goals in all competitions before he was injured in the Champions League quarter-final against Anderlecht in April.

Mourinho had previously opened the door to the former Barcelona and Ajax striker playing for the club again, and confirmed on Friday that talks have taken place with the player.

"I think Manchester United will win the Premier League because Mourinho has never failed in a second season", Crespo said in a Q&A via the Mirror. "He's not ready to play tomorrow".

JOSE MOURINHO has cranked up the heat by warning Liverpool and Chelsea: Let's see how you get on now we're all in Europe.

"There's no guarantee but naturally a manager in his second season knows the club and the players better". Victor [Lindelof] can play right-back, centre midfield.

"We always had more goals from wingers, midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals and last season that didn't happen much".

That's different to the three other leagues [Portugal, Italy and Spain] I have worked in.

After their title winning campaign last season, FC's Stewart Robson thinks Chelsea will struggle to perform this season.

"I understand the reality of the market, of the numbers, and I also understand that my club, by doing 75 per cent of what I initially asked for, I think the club did very well. If the remaining 25 percent don't arrive I will not moan, just go with everything I have to try to win every match we play". I'm not in a position of crying, of moaning, protesting.

Goalkeeper: Despite fresh speculation linking him with a return to Spain this summer David De Gea looks set to stay at United and continue as their No.1 this season with Sergio Romero once again his back-up.

Mourinho would love to add another signing, with Gareth Bale and Ivan Perisic top of his list, but insisted: "If we can't strengthen then we have people we trust".

"The Premier League is what you all know", he said.

"In the Premier League I'd say seven teams will fight for the title and 20 fight for the victory in every game, every match". To have a striker with 420 career club goals as an option could prove massive for the Manchester club in games that are not going their way but also if Lukaku picks up an injury there would be a truly reliable alternative up front for Jose Mourinho to call upon.

"If I was a Premier League manager and had to choose between Lukaku, [Alvaro] Morata and [Alexandre] Lacazette, I would choose Lukaku, always".
