Michael Carrick backs Romelu Lukaku to handle pressure at Man United

Arsenal's latest promo video for their pre-season tour to China is much, much worse than Rooney's far from convincing performance on the big screen.

He added: 'I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player. After some discussions, however, the young goalkeeper decided to renew, which means Real Madrid will have to look elsewhere for their number one.

The Premier League has seen broad tactical trends move from 4-4-2, to five-man midfields and now on to three-man defences.

Mourinho was in buoyant mood when asked about the striker they did land, Romelu Lukaku. I do not criticise Madrid and I am not going to criticise my board because my board has made the offer, and they have tried to reach an agreement during a time, and they didn't come to an agreement.

"That came from the manager Sir Alex Ferguson when I went to United and it was then passed down through the dressing room by the likes of Giggsy, Gary Neville and Scholesy".

Swedish defender Victor Lindelof and Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku joined the Reds earlier this summer, and both are settling into the squad nicely as the club continues to tour the USA.

He used it against FC Rostov in the Europa League last season, and matched Chelsea's 3-4-3 on another occasion. We will not be the ones who put a price on a Real Madrid player. I know, it's fascinating/padding, depending on how futile you believe life to be. "The two American teams are in the middle of their competition". Obviously there are other good strikers in football, but the Premier League is a very specific habitat. And Mourinho, at the moment, has eight. I think the market is so strange.

The Special One tag stuck, especially as Mourinho continued to win titles. That's got to be the aim.

But just qualifying for the Champions League will not satisfy United's tens of millions of fans around the world, something the Special One's chosen one has already grasped.

Barcelona are seeking the successor to Andres Iniesta and have been closely linked with Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti, per MailOnline's Rory Callaghan, but Herrera may no longer be considered an alternative target.
