'I don't think it (an immediate appointment) makes sense when Rui is leaving after 17 years.

Pogba, 25, has had an indifferent career at United since returning to the Premier League from Juventus for £89m two seasons ago.

This term the veteran has been restricted to just five outings in all competitions due to a heart condition, but there is no doubt that United will find him hard to replace in the summer. "Being out there with the kids is something that you always cherish".

24 - Number of Premier League minutes played this season by Michael Carrick prior to his farewell outing.

Pogba will now look ahead to the FA Cup final, where United take on Chelsea on 19 May, before linking up with the French national team for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Mourinho also confirmed that Carrick will be substituted during the game, to ensure he is given a send-off by the club's fans. However, if he does play, he will get the chance to add on to his legacy.

Jose Mourinho has picked out that player and it's, surprise-surprise, Anthony Martial.

The Sky Sports pundit went on quite the rant about Mourinho and the lack of excitement surrounding the club while Manchester City cruised to the title. It's not just game to game but half to half.

"He has mentioned mentality a lot in the last few weeks and I am convinced it's because of those peaks and troughs coming so unexpectedly".

The former Internacional star arrived at the Ukrainian giants for €15 million in 2013 and has gone on to make nearly 100 league appearances for the club.

Throughout the recently concluded season, United were accused of playing safe yet defensive football, as a result of which we lost against all three newly-promoted sides.

The newspaper claims the Serie A champions value Sandro above the £50m City paid for Kyle Walker last summer and Juve expect a deal worth around £55m to be agreed with United after their season ends this weekend.

The club is likely to finish second in the Portuguese league standings as they are seven points behind winners FC Porto.
