Zidane put on standby as Manchester United's next manager

Paul Pogba’s form has been inconsistent since Mourinho brought him to Old Trafford two years ago

"If that happens, I think we will see a breakout of peace between Pogba and Mourinho and Raiola and Man United".

Manchester United's lack of new signings combined with the uncertainty surrounding the team's strategies and form gives the club a very small chance of challenging for the Premier League title, former midfielder Paul Scholes has said.

The Red Devils star impressed during the World Cup as France eased to 4-2 win over Croatia in the World Cup final.

It is believed that the 46-year-old is eyeing Old Trafford as his next destination to replace Jose Mourinho as early as next season.

Old Trafford boss Mourinho has "been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer", says the Metro, after a frustrating pre-season.

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs was also among the list, while Antonio Conte, Luis Enrique and Brendan Rodgers, of all people, are also linked.

PGA Championship: Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy lead odds
Open champion, said a victory and chance to lift the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday would turn a good year into something else. Thomas plays the opening two days with Woods and Rory McIlroy .

The latest briefing from Manchester United insiders on Wednesday backed the club's manager and insisted the club "are convinced they have the squad to challenge for the Premier League title", despite a disappointing summer in the transfer market.

Pogba has refused to quell the uncertainty over his future and said: "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

The Portuguese tactician is supposedly confused as to why the 25-year-old made a decision to lash out in front of the media instead of speaking to him first.

United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was unable to strike a deal for either player Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld and Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng who were both wanted by Mourinho. The "again" was a dig at him having quit the club in 2012 to earn more money at Juventus before his £89million return two years ago.

But the bad blood is hanging over from last season when the pair fell out leading to Mourinho dropping and subbing the player.
