Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho is expected to receive major funds to further strengthen his team in the new year and bookmakers have the Argentine as a 2/1 shot to complete a stunning return to the Premier league club.
The 30-year-old wing wizard has fallen down the pecking order at the Ligue 1 club with Thomas Tuchel incharge and could replace Anthony Martial at Manchester United.
The Manchester United forward had indicated that he would be ready to make a dramatic U-turn and pen a new deal with the Premier League giant, but media reports on Thursday were suggesting that Martial’s wage demands could prevent any potential new deal.
The Former Real Madrid star, meanwhile, was recently connected with a move to Premier League rival Arsenal, after revealing his intention to return to the Premier League – although the players salary demands could be the main problem for any potential suitor from the Premier League.
