Jose Mourinho has constantly made remarks about his team lacking creativity despite signing Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovich before the start of the season. Mkhitaryan has failed to impress making just one start for United while Pogba and Zlatan have all played well.

Guedes contract with the Portuguese club runs till 2021 but the winger is likely to leave the club with Benfica having sold 13 of their players in the past six years for a total of 270million euro and the sale of Goncalo Guedes would see them rise past the 300million euro mark.
