The gist of the Portuguese manager’s comments were talks about the potential signing of Bale in the upcoming days, to which the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss said that if the Welshman wanted to leave the Bernabeu, he would be on top of Mourinho’s wish-list.
Further, there was an update given on the team and which players would be available to represent the Manchester based side tomorrow.
The manager confirmed that Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo are the only three players, who are out with an injury and will not be part of the team.
On the other hand, there is some more bad news for the Old Trafford faithful, as their main-man confirmed that Phil Jones and Eric Bailly will also miss the game due to a suspension.
Tim Fosu-Mensah will not be playing as well, as he in probably on his way to another club on loan.
