Mourinho sends strong message to Martial and Rashford over their futures

Mourinho sends strong message to Martial and Rashford over their futures

He told the club's monthly magazine: "I think it does".

Rashford and Martial were competing with each other for a starting spot at the beginning of the season, and it looked like a really fair battle between the two.

And Mourinho today hit back at reporters who asked about his plans to sign a striker, claiming he can not buy any more players while he is struggling to include first-team stars.

Sources said United had not received any formal inquiry about the availability of the England worldwide, who has scored 12 goals in 44 games this season, and their stance is that any approach would be unwelcome.

However, not only will United have to deal with fierce resistance from Liverpool, but the Spanish publication suggests Real Madrid are also keen on luring Salah to the Bernabeu this summer.

Bayern face Real in Champions League semis
It's not enough for Bayern to simply win the league, or even the double or the treble - it has to be done in a certain style, too. Champions League qualification is possible this season after another stellar campaign.

"The same questions you are doing to me, you should do to every other manager because everyone has players in the same situation", he added.

Almost half of the winger's appearances in the Premier League have come from the bench amidst rotation with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez. "Because I decide that way".

"I think it's a risky week for us because we come from a very good result and also I think a few consecutive victories in the Premier League. They're the most important things".

The former Chelsea boss said he can not guarantee playing time to either player.

"The England squad's quite young, so there's just a massive bundle of excitement buzzing around", he said.

Palestinian journalists fear being targeted during protests
IDF troops are responding with riot dispersal means and are firing in accordance with the rules of engagement. Organisers have been calling on Friday's demonstrators to burn Israeli flags and raise Palestinian ones.

It is just football, we can not have just 11 players.

"(Gareth Southgate has) brought a massive amount of freedom, especially to the forward players, but it's within a structure.

"Our moment is good but we are playing against a team who are fighting". We know what our individual roles are, and we still need to learn and develop that.

The forward's place in his country's World Cup squad is uncertain, given that coach Didier Deschamps has significant attacking options now and did not select him for their decisive qualifiers against Bulgaria and Belarus last autumn.
