Mourinho demands cash plus Real Madrid midfielder for De Gea
Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho has told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez he'll have to cough up big for David de Gea. According to Don Balon, the pair have touched base over De Gea's situation. The 54-year-old specialist is prepared to see his goalkeeper sold - but will insist on €70 million cash plus a Real midfielder. The Red Devils manager wants a deal for Casemiro and has told Perez such an exchange for De Gea would represent a fair valuation. Perez could simply meet De Gea's €70 million buyout clause and ferry him away. But he wants to maintain good relations with Mourinho so will try to avoid any hostile attempt. Mourinho, reportedly, sees Casemiro as an ideal midfield partner for the under pressure Paul Pogba.

Memphis Depay hails “best ever goal”
Former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay has claimed that he scored 'the best goal of his life' in Lyon's 4-0 win over Toulouse on Sunday. "It's great for me to score a goal like this," Memphis told Le Figaro. "A few years ago, I tried the same thing when I played for PSV. I do not know who it was against. I was 10 meters away and I hit the bar. This time I was lucky. I think I scored the best goal of my life. "Besides that, I'm very happy because the team got an important victory. We had to take the three points at home. From the first period, I realised that the goalkeeper was playing away from his line. I didn't touch the ball in the middle of the field but I kept it in a corner of my mind. "At the time, we pressed high and the ball was recovered. I knew where the goalkeeper was. Without thinking, I tried my luck in turning. I didn't even see the ball go in but I saw the stadium in delirium. The other day I saw Alex Lacazette score a magnificent goal and I told him I had to do the same. As I told my colleagues, I should have scored a hat-trick."
Ferdinand urges Mourinho to move for Costa
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged Jose Mourinho to move for Douglas Costa. Ferdinand, reportedly, is a big fan of the Bayern Munich midfielder. “I admire Douglas Costa of Bayern Munich," he told The Times. “He's an electric player with pedigree who is not always in Bayern's starting line-up and he'd be worth paying big money for. United have always played with wingers and you've got Ibrahimovic to feed in the air. "But most of all, the team needs legs."
Mourinho: Europa League more important than FA Cup
Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho shared his expectations from today's clash with Chelsea. "The hardest thing is that we don't have time to rest. However, it's not Chelsea's fault that they don't participate in European competitions. Chelsea are now in a more comfortable position. It will not be harder for me to lose Chelse than to any other team. Similarly, I will not be happier if we defeat them and not another opponent. FA Cup is not as important for us as Europa League, because FA Cup doesn't provide us the chance to earn a Champions league place, while our goal is the latter," Mourinho said.
