Manchester United's return to Champions League started on a positive note when they beat Basel 3-0 in Group A encounter. Fellaini, Lukaku and Rashford scored while Paul Pogba was injured and could be out for several weeks. 

However, Jose Mourinho slammed his players' performances for much of the second half. He said,

Until 2-0 we were very stable, we played with confidence, with good choices. After 2-0 everything changed, we stopped playing seriously and stopped making right decisions. We could have put ourselves in trouble.

We were playing fantasy football, Playstation football. I don’t like it, flicks and tricks.

We gambled and you have to respect your opponent. I don’t know if goal difference will play a part. We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations. I didn’t like it, the players relaxed too much. 

Sitting on top of the Premier League table and in their Group in the Champions League, the gaffer will be pleased. He did praise Ashley Young and Fellaini after tonight's win against FC Basel. Red Devils will face Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester United had a busy few months of recruitment this summer, both, in terms of players and scouts.

While all Red Devils fans know about the big name signings that Jose Mourinho brought to Old Trafford this summer, little has been said about the youngsters that joined United.

Here are 4 promising young talent to join Man United, and mind you, all have been signed by Mourinho; a manager who is often credited for buying star players and not promising youngsters.

1. Aliou Badara Traore: He's a France Under-16 international midfielder, who came through PSG’s academy. 

2. Ethan Galbraith: This 16-year-old Northern Ireland midfielder is the captain of Northern Ireland's U17s and has already made his debut at U18 level for his country. He joins United from from Linfield Under-16s. 

3. Arnau Puigmal: He's a 16-year-old Spanish central midfielder, who was a star of Espanyol’s Cadete A side and Red Devils expect big things from this youngster.

4. Largie Ramazani: He’s a 16-year-old Belgian forward who began his youth career in Anderlecht’s academy. United signed him from League One outfit Charlton Athletic.

Manchester United has resigned Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a one-year contract. The Swedish striker's spell with the Red Devils was curtailed by a serious knee injury which ended his season prematurely.

Ibra made 46 appearances and scored 28 goals for United during the 2016/17 campaign. After undergoing a successful surgery, the 35-year old underwent his rehabilitation and has now agreed to return to Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho expressed his thoughts by saying, 
We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us. After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return. I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season.

The big Swede will be wearing #10 shirt vacated by Wayne Rooney, after he allowed Romelu Lukaku to take #9 shirt that he wore last season.

Expressing his pleasure, Ibrahimovic said,
I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club's intention for me to stay. I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready. I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch.

Manchester United beat Swansea City 4-0 in today's lunch time kick-off at the Liberty Stadium, recording back-to-back 4-0 wins. Eric Bailly scored his first-ever Premier league goal in the first half.

The Swans collapsed in second half after late goal glut, with Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial scoring in a frantic six minute spell. 

Last week, the Red Devils got off to a winning start in the opening Premier League fixture by beating West Ham. They have been tipped to win the league this season by many pundits because of the players they have bought in the summer, and of course, Jose Mourinho's record of always winning the title in his second season.

Today's game displayed United's desire and urgency to sharpen their claws and send a message to the rest of the league.

Manchester United have strengthened their squad this season to pose a serious title challenge. After spending more than £130 million to buy Victor Lindelöf, Lukaku and Matic this summer, the Red Devils are looking to sign two midfielders from Barcelona.

25-year-old Sergi Roberto, who has consistently been touted to join United is eyeing up a move away from the Nou Camp. There have been reports that United are ready to activate Roberto’s £36.5million release clause to make the Spanish international their fourth signing this summer. 

Another player linked with Man United is 30-year-old Arda Turan. It has been reported that Jose Mourinho has held several meetings with the Turkish international ahead of a potential £24m move to Old Trafford.

After failing to land Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan, the gaffer has turned his attention to Arda Turan, whom he holds in high esteem for his tactical discipline, astuteness on the ball and tenacity.
