When Jose Mourinho became Manchester United's manager, commentators spoke of his unwillingness to mix youngsters into the team. 

If looks like those fears may be about to be realised as the Portuguese manager is preparing to allow James Wilson, Tyler Blackett and Will Keane leave the club.

All three players were sent out on loan last season to gain first-team experience, and The Telegraph claim that all three players could now be deemed surplus to requirements. Keane scored the first goal of the Mourinho-era when the team beat Wigan Athletic in a pre-season friendly.

The Arda Turan-era at Barcelona looks like it will be a short one. The Turkish midfielder signed from Atletico Madrid last summer, but was only registered to play in January. TallkSPORT claim that the Catalan side are already willing to sell the Turkish star.

Chelsea and Arsenal are both interested in the 29-year-old, but the former Galatasaray player may be tempted to move home with his former club and Fenerbache both interested in his signature.

The Daily Mail claim that Manchester United are preparing a bid for Monaco defender Fabinho. The Monaco player would cost Jose Mourinho around 25million.

Formerly of Real Madrid, Fabinho made his international debut last year, and was an unused sub in Brazil's Copa America Centenario squad earlier this summer.

He may be one of the three English-born managers on the shortlist, but The Mirror claim that Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe does not want to leave the Premier League to become England's manager.

The 38-year-old reportedly does not want to "kill his career" by becoming the England manager at such a young age.
