Manchester United begin at home to Leicester City tonight, and Jose Mourinho isn’t happy. We are approaching Year Three. Can’t wait. It could be a magnificent implosion. Ed Woodward and Mourinho don’t seem to be on the same page at all. Given Mourinho’s dissatisfaction with United’s transfer activity, tonight’s 0-0 draw with Leicester should be a sight to behold. But does the Portuguese have so much to complain about? He’s been allowed to spend heavily since arriving in 2016 and already has a load of centre-backs at the club. He seems to want to take a short-term view, while Woodward is reluctant to let Mourinho get rid of young players like Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial. Could we be heading for a Mourinho season?
