New low: United, Mourinho crash to minnows

Manchester United remain one of the richest clubs in the world

There is growing concern in the Manchester United boardroom after Jose Mourinho's very public spat with Paul Pogba in training on Wednesday, according to reports. And, Barcelona have reportedly stepped up their efforts to snap up the Premier League superstar, with widespread reports suggesting that they will scout him at every game he plays this season.

Mourinho said on Sky Sports shortly before kick-off that Pogba and others had been "rested" for the Derby game.

United paid for their failure to build on Juan Mata's early opener on Tuesday, with Harry Wilson scoring an exceptional free-kick and substitute Jack Marriott directing home either side of Sergio Romero's sending off for handling outside the box.

Manchester United have slapped a £200 million price tag on the 2018 World Cup victor, although it remains to be seen if Barcelona would be willing to part with a club record transfer fee.

The Red Devils will now dust themselves down as they prepare to take on West Ham United in the Premier League at the London Stadium on Saturday lunchtime. "I think Mino Raiola is influencing Pogba to get what he wants out of this".

China: Beijing to Cut Tariffs on Imports From Most Trading Partners
But the higher-valued dollar has also diminished the value of the Turkish lira and the Argentine peso, among others. The world's two largest economic superpowers have already applied tariffs on $50 billion of each other's imports.

But while there is a sense of exasperation with Mourinho's approach, there is also an air of helplessness among the players due to the realisation the club remains supportive of the manager.

"Mourinho's got his own problems at the end of the this season, in terms of if he's the right manager for Manchester United".

"That's Old Trafford", Pogba was quoted as saying in his post-match interview. That if Mourinho goes you'll see a new Pogba, you won't, I can assure Manchester United fans you won't.

But they needed a stoppage-time equaliser from Marouane Fellaini to take the tie to a shootout, which was lost when Phil Jones became the only player to miss. "A player can never be bigger than the manager or a football club".

Video footage from Carrington shows the French World Cup victor run over to Mourinho and attempt to shake his hand before the manager says something to stop him in his tracks. "The truth is the opponent in the second half started better than us and we weren't able to match that intensity".
