Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says the Premier League outfit is the flawless place for Paul Pogba to build his case as the world's best player and beat the pressure that goes with a world-record transfer fee. "The reality is we're going to sign one more player, the market closes, as you know, 31 August".

A fan at the official adidas shop in Paris posted a picture which has been trumpeted across the world as proof that Juventus have agreed to sell Paul Pogba to Manchester United.

Rooney is aiming to raise £5m during his testimonial year for Alder Hey children's hospital, Claire House children's hospice, Manchester United Foundation and the NSPCC, of which he is a patron.

Paul Pogba is worth the world-record £100m transfer fee Manchester United are ready to pay Juventus for him, according to Phil Neville.

"My players need minutes, we had a really bad pre-season because of the Euros and then in China", Mourinho told BT Sport. The 23-year-old is the last of what the Portuguese coach described as "a nucleus of four priorities, four positions to give a certain balance to the squad" following the signings of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Wayne Rooney has been tipped to have plenty more left in his locker by Jose Mourinho in the light of the current Manchester United and England captain's testimonial.

"I said many years ago the flawless partner for a striker is Wayne Rooney".

"You never know when the season starts".

"So I think Man United, Man City and I think Liverpool will be there or thereabouts".

"Wayne has gone public in stating that he intends to see out his current contract", said Stretford.

He added: "As a player in the changing room, you've been thinking for so long: "He's coming, he's coming".

"I don't like to talk about other clubs' players and I don't like it when they talk about my players".

Two of his predecessors, Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, were in the stand to show their appreciation for Rooney's 12 years at the club and the striker insisted that Mourinho has yet to adopt the same confrontational style as Fergie.
