Manchester United begin their Carabao Cup campaign on Tuesday night as Jose Mourinho welcomes his former Chelsea talisman Frank Lampard to Old Trafford. United could only reach the fifth round last season as they crashed out to Championship side Bristol City, so will be fully aware of the threat posed by Derby. Diogo Dalot is in line to make his first senior appearance at Old Trafford after making his United debut in the Champions League win at Young Boys last week. Mourinho has said he will ease 19-year-old Dalot into the first-team picture, with Tuesday night's game a perfect opportunity. Ander Herrera will return, meaning Marcos Rojo and Marcus Rashford will be the only players unavailable for Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho played a crucial role in Diogo Dalot's decision to sign for United, according to sources close to the player. The Portuguese youngster completed his whirlwind move from Porto on Wednesday and has signed a five-year contract at Old Trafford. MEN Sport understands 13 of Europe's top clubs were interested in Dalot and eight were willing to pay considerably more than his £17.5m release clause to sign him before it became active on June 30. Mourinho, though, stepped in and the allure of playing for the former Porto manager proved too strong for Dalot after the two clubs agreed on a £19m transfer fee. "It's Mourinho. He wanted Diogo to play for United - that's all the influence that is necessary when a great club and a great manager are both willing to sign him," a source close to the player told MEN Sport.

Paul Scholes wants Manchester United to sign Gareth Bale this summer. But the Old Trafford great doesn't see a deal happening. The Welshman has fuelled speculation he could join United with his post-Champions League final interview, in which he suggested he is willing to leave Real Madrid in search of regular game-time. Bale was the match-winner against Liverpool as he came off the bench to score twice in the 3-1 victory but the Welshman has been largely peripheral under Zinedine Zidane this season. United have attempted to sign Bale in the past and Scholes thinks he would be a great addition to Jose Mourinho's side. "Can I see it happening? No, not really," Scholes said, speaking at an official UEFA Champions League Final viewing party at London's Sky Garden.

Manchester United's board believe the club has made progress under Jose Mourinho and are perfectly satisfied with the 55-year-old, according to reports. The Red Devils failed to really challenge rivals Manchester City for the Premier League title this season and were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage. However, should United continue on their current course and finish second in the league then it would be a marked improvement from their sixth-placed finish last term. Because of this progress Mourinho continues to be the right man for the job, according to The Telegraph. The report adds however that the board do have certain expectations for Mourinho next season - including mounting a serious title challenge and performing better in the Champions League. United's chiefs are even willing to sacrifice an entertaining style of play if it means bringing in more silverware. Should Mourinho not deliver next season, it is understood he himself knows his job will be … [Read more...] about What the Man Utd board think of Mourinho
