Mourinho outlines January transfer policy amid Sanchez speculation

Mourinho outlines January transfer policy amid Sanchez speculation

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has given an update on Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his press conference today as the player recovers from injury.

The Armenian started this season in a similar vein, laying on regular assists for the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba, before a loss of form led to another ostracizing by Mourinho.

But the United boss is willing to change his original plans not to sign in January if the right player becomes available and he could swoop for City target Alexis Sanchez in a £35 million deal.

Mourinho has made numerous comments indicating that he believes the summer window, not the winter one, is the right time to buy.

The Red Devils stars have been given a break away from their usual training base in far less sunnier climes with Manchester United not in action until next Monday.

And Mourinho concedes that the 28-year-old could leave Old Trafford if they receive an acceptable offer.

Mourinho said: "My approach to players is that every player has a price".

"And I am not the kind of blind manager".

"Blind in the sense that this player is untouchable, this one can never be sold".

"I think every player has a price".

'But I think the fact we have stayed strong, and we have been able to be a good part of the group over these years we have been here, is a true testament to all of us.

"The noises we are getting from Man United and other clubs interested in him, like Inter who want a loan done, Man United would only consider a sale", Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

"He consulted other doctors and other opinions, and we all made the decision to stop treatment".

Elsewhere, Ashley Young is still serving his three-match suspension while Eric Bailly is working his way back from an ankle injury so both players are certain to miss the Stoke game.

"If it happens, happens, if it doesn't happen then it doesn't happen but I like my squad, I like my players, the more time I spend with them this week was also good to be sure of that". "So Saturday [he is] training, then Sunday [he is] selected and Monday [he will] play".
