Mourinho blames United's Super Cup defeat on Ronaldo's seven-minute cameo

Ryan Giggs reveals why Paul Pogba is the key to Manchester United winning the Premier League

"If he is on his way out of Real Madrid, well, I'll try to be waiting for him on the other side and try to fight with other coaches that would also like to have him on his team".

Bale said: "I am just concentrating on my football".

With Manchester United on the break with three players against two Real Madrid defenders, it was puzzling that Paul Pogba elected to shoot from about 30 yards when Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jese Lingard were in space and better positioned.

"He's a Madrid player, he's important for us and he's one of the world's best".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho announced it was "game over" for the Red Devils in their pursuit of Gareth Bale after the Welsh winger started for Real Madrid in Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup. We controlled things where they are very strong, such as second balls, the high balls.

After United backed off their interest in the Spaniard, Real Madrid ended up acquiring the now-25-year-old for €30 million, and the rest is history.

However, following his performance in the Super Cup, Perez is keen on holding onto the forward who is not interested in leaving Madrid.

"No replicas of (Luka) Modric, Toni Kroos, Isco, no replicas of Casimero, so they are really solid and the way they move the ball makes it hard for the opponents".


He also acknowledged that Madrid could have scored more goals than they did, and United could have scored more goals than we did.

"We did very good work, again", Zidane said.

A first half goal from Casemiro - which looked to have been marginally offside - put Real ahead, with Isco doubling the lead shortly after half-time.

Manchester United continued to battle and finally was rewarded when a powerful blast off the foot of Nemanja Matic ricocheted off diving net minder Keylor Navas and directly to Romelu Lukaku, who slotted the ball home from close range in the 62nd minute.

United are still in the market for new players, ones which will help them reduce the gap between themselves and superior sides.

'I believe that he is the one if they are going to sell to get that massive amount of money if the Mbappe thing is going to happen I think they can get that money for Bale.

'I think game over because now everybody knows he is going to stay'.

After receiving a runners up medal after the final whistle, Mourinho went to the fans and gifted his to one young United supporter. It will take time, but Mourinho is making progress.
