Every day is a huge news day in the world of Manchester United. Most of the time, there is a fair amount of drama surrounding the club (at least during the Jose Mourinho era anyway).

There is certainly no shortage of news topics to discuss today, so let’s take a spin through the latest news and notes items making the rounds on the internet right now.

Jose Mourinho, for as much criticism as he receives, on numerous levels, is a proven winner and people should not forget that.

Defender Daley Blind, who broke the Dutch Eredivisie transfer fee record when United sold him back to Ajax, certainly doesn’t.

Blind paid homage to Mourinho and spoke highly of his time at Old Trafford, mentioning all the silverware that he won while he was with the club.

“I’ve almost played 150 games and won four trophies with them. I’ve really had a great time with lots of beautiful moments,” said Blind.

“I am very thankful for the fans there that was great. I am very thankful to Mourinho. It was nice working with him. I learned a lot. He is a true winner and he is the best in transferring that to the group.”


Finally, Fred reveals why he chose the red side of Manchester over the blue. According to an interview with ESPN UK , his agent, who also once played for Arsenal, told him what it was like to play for a huge club, and that is exactly what the Brazilian was looking for.

“There were options in England and in Europe,” said the midfielder. “Manchester City, PSG, but I chose United. I spoke to my agent Gilberto Silva, who played for Arsenal. He told me that United was a huge club. I spoke to my family and friends.

“When I said United, I saw their faces. I’m sure that I made the right choice. I want to play in and win the Premier League, the best league in the world. I had a proposal from China too, but I didn’t want to go there because I wanted to join United.”

Obviously, Fred was really excited when the chance to join United arose.


Likewise, United supporters are very excited that he chose to come to their favorite club.
