While this could be a good opportunity for Manchester United fans to turn their heads back to the pitch after an interesting several days of transfer talk regarding Alexis Sanchez, Stoke City fans would most probably disagree.

Nevertheless, Mourinho does not think that any signing will bridge the gap between United and City in terms of points in the Premier League this season, with Guardiola's side 15 clear ahead of their trip to Liverpool on Sunday.

The 28-year-old arrived at United in the summer of 2016 as a marquee signing, the playmaker to get the best from their frontline.

He decided to stay with Leicester in the end and it seemed like that would mean he'd finish his career at the King Power Stadium.

"At the general level, what I can say is that myself and the Manchester United board, we don't believe a lot in the January market". Too many have underperformed this season, and it might well turn out to be a bad time to play the Potters from United's point of view.

It is obvious that there are some fine players in this team.

"The balance of the squad is made in the summer, unless you have a dramatic situation with a crazy number of injuries and you are pushed for emergency deals".

Mkhitaryan scored Manchester United's second goal in a 2-0 win against Dutch side Ajax in the Eredivisie. He joined in 2010 but was sold by Louis van Gaal in 2015 to Bayer Leverkusen.

Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United could decide to sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan during the January transfer window.

Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind, Anthony Martial and Ashley Young are also in the firing line.

The Armenian was supposed to be the man who sparked up the dull football Man United were playing under Louis van Gaal.

Choupo-Moting has been one of the better performers at Stoke - off that left-hand side.

The Red Devils are reportedly looking for a back-up option to Romelu Lukaku, with former Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic back on the sidelines due to injury.

With the Premier League title almost out of reach, United must ensure they lead the chasing pack - which is all they could do at this moment in time.

"If in the winter you do one of the three, then in the summer you do three minus one".

Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill has been linked with the vacant position, and it is thought that a new head coach will soon be appointed. Getting Mkhitaryan to Anfield would is an impossible task, but Klopp must recognise how player, club and manager are perfect for each other.
