Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has ruled his club out of the race to re-sign Los Angeles Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic after he left for Major League Soccer in March. Romelu Lukaku has struggled for goals in United's attack this season—he's scored four times in 13 games—but that still won't push Mourinho to sign Ibrahimovic again. When asked in Friday's press conference if he would be making another move for his former star, Mourinho replied: "No. No." Ibrahimovic, 37, struggled to return to his best in the Premier League after he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in April 2017. However, he's now soaring in MLS and can lead the Galaxy into this season's play-offs with a victory against Houston Dynamo on Sunday.

Manchester United’s wage bill has ballooned to almost £300 million following increased salary payments from the Champions League and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez. United announced a profit of £44.1m for the 2017/18 season on the back of record revenues of £590m but the most eye-catching figure was a dramatic 12.3 per cent jump in wages to £295.9m. The sharp increase was primarily attributed to a rise in “player salary uplifts” relating to the club’s return to the Champions League last season, despite a dismal Round of 16 exit to Sevilla, and means United now have the second-highest earning squad in Europe behind Barcelona, whose 2016/17 wage bill stood at £336m. Although United removed Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Adnan Januzaj from their wage bill over the course of the last financial year, the signing of Sanchez from Arsenal in January in a £500,000-a-week deal, and the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, … [Read more...] about Manchester United wage bill balloons to almost £300m
Register for our free newsletterTHE first international break is over and now the meat of the domestic season can really begin. The Champions League and Europa League group stages start in midweek but before then, we have a round of Premier League fixtures to watch and this week’s PREMIER LEAGUE WEEKLY focuses on three players firmly in the spotlight. The August hoodoo is over, but is everything OK with Harry Kane? HARRY KANE starts the first match after the September international break with two more goals than in any other Premier League season. Two goals in four games means he has ended that oddity of never scoring a league goal in August, but something seems to be missing. Perhaps we have become too accustomed to Kane scoring goals. With 105 in the previous four seasons, the Tottenham striker has developed a reputation whereby you expect him to score every week. So when he doesn’t score, there must be something wrong with him. The remarkable thing about Kane is that he … [Read more...] about Premier League Weekly: Is there a problem with Tottenham striker Harry Kane, and do the minutes add up for Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford?
