"I think Jose is a brilliant manager, and, in a 25-year career, young managers will emerge, people will ask questions if you aren't successful", he added.

France's Le 10Sport seem to think that the gears are already in motion for Zidane's move to Manchester, reporting that the 46-year-old has already held talks with United and wishes to bring Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann with him to the club.

German media reported in August that Boateng informed United coach Jose Mourinho of his decision to not return to Manchester, where he had played for local rivals City in the 2010-11 season.

"I had enquiries from PSG and Manchester United", he told Bild.

"I did not want just to get away from Bayern, but I was thrilled to try a new challenge".

"If I was still in that dressing room giving personal advice it would be, 'Paul, it's obvious you want to play somewhere else but be professional". I feel completely contented at Bayern - one of the biggest clubs in the world. I told him that his interest was an honour for me and thanked him for trying so hard for me. "Everything has to fall in place to top this club, if I do it. [Bayern Munich boss] Niko Kovac gave me the feeling that I am very important for him and the club".

Rashford has struggled for time on the pitch at United this season with Mourinho able to pick from a clutch of attacking options including Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata.

The Frenchman joined United from Juventus, four years after the Red Devils had sold him to the Serie A side as a youngster.

Andrea Pirlo admitted he would not be surprised to see Paul Pogba leave Manchester United and rejoin Juventus.

They haven't won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
