Mourinho: Mkhitaryan is very good player, he will play against Stoke City

Mourinho: Mkhitaryan is very good player, he will play against Stoke City

Mourinho remains open to selling the 28-year-old, who has played just 202 minutes in all competitions in the last two months.

"At the general level what I can say is myself and Manchester United board, owners, we don't believe a lot in the January market we don't believe in sign a player just to sign a player, just to do something we don't believe in that, what we believe really is there are some players in football world if you have the chance to sign them in January, March or July, you have to try and that's it".

Most would agree that the Manchester United goalkeeper is the best in the world right now.

Mourinho said: "The option?"

'Always looking to improve the team and we have had some good acquisitions over the years. But in relation to Alexis Sanchez I don't say a word. "David is to keep".

United nearly lost De Gea to Madrid in August 2015 when problems with a fax machine scuppered the deal.

"When I was managing him I was 40-something".

"When I start (it), I take the responsibilities of that, and I've started many times".

"For players time means a lot".

Asked if talks over a new contract were already under way with De Gea and his agent, Jorge Mendes, who also represents Mourinho, the Portuguese added: "I don't know".

The 27-year-old, arguably United's most important player, has been linked with moves away from the club, however, and nearly joined Real Madrid in 2015, when a deal worth £29 million would have seen De Gea move to Spain and Keylor Navas join United.

The 27-year-old, signed from Atletico Madrid for £18.9 million ($29.8 million, 22.7 million euros) in June 2011, was United's players' player of the year in 2014 and 2015, and Mourinho sees him as a crucial part of the club's bid to return to the very top of the English and European game.

"Every club close to that line is scared and generally they change their manager".
