Rooney picks out two "embarrassing" moments under Mourinho at Man Utd

But now that Pereira has chose to stay at Old Trafford so that he can play for the manager, Mourinho doesn't even play him.

It's well documented that Sanchez has been a major flop since swapping the Emirates Stadium for Old Trafford almost a year ago, and it seems likely that he won't last much longer in Manchester.

Gary Neville has admitted that he is unsure which areas Jose Mourinho needs to improve in the Manchester United team.

Manchester United have had to deal with yet another disappointing start to the campaign and are languishing in the eighth spot with just 20 points on board.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly instructed the club to pursue a move for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly when the transfer window reopens in a couple of months' time.

He told Sky Sports (via ESPN): "I came on for one minute in the Europa League final, I was about to come on against Southampton in the League Cup final, and in those moments it was embarrassing".

Mr Varadkar said he did not think the draft agreement could be re-negotiated before the end of March and that "any renegotiation would involve postponing Brexit".

"You'd expect a little bit more out of him. he has got a presence but I look at some of the midfielders around and David Silva has been a fantastic signing for Manchester City".

He added: "He was extraordinary, a fantastic player".

When United made an approach for the Tottenham star this summer they were quoted a figure of around £60million, which Ed Woodward found excessive. I had to move on and now I am happy in Spain and making a difference. We brought Sanchez in who was a class player at Arsenal and he's not doing the business.

When Pereira chose to go on loan for the second season in a row without consulting Jose Mourinho, the Portuguese did not hide his disappointment - suggesting that he had plans for the midfielder that campaign.

"Secondly - and probably as important - the player would know, so I would say if Declan had thoughts about who he was going to play for, I think that would have reared its head at that particular time".

"We went in there with a few injuries, we had a game against Wales a few days later, and had to try and win the game - that was the most important thing".
