“They where one of the reasons I was not playing well with them. They sold the most important players because for no good reason and left the bad eggs who are still at the club”-The three players Jose Mourinho claims he would never have sold at Man United

Mourinho emphasizes that he would have retained three Manchester United players let go under Louis van Gaal’s management.Taking over from Van Gaal in 2016, Mourinho expressed his dissatisfaction with the state of the club he inherited, deeming it ‘sad’.

He lamented the departures of Angel Di Maria, Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez, and Danny Welbeck, indicating that under his leadership, they would have remained at Old Trafford.

Expressing his stance, Mourinho asserted, “I would never have sold [Angel] Di Maria, Chicharito, Danny Welbeck – never, no chance.”Di Maria’s tenure at United, despite his hefty £59.7 million transfer from Real Madrid, was short-lived, as he struggled to meet expectations before moving to Paris Saint-Germain.Meanwhile, Hernandez, after a loan spell at Real, departed for Bayer Leverkusen, having scored 59 goals for the Red Devils during his tenure.

As for Welbeck, a product of United’s renowned youth academy, he made a Premier League switch to Arsenal.Mourinho’s disappointment with these exits reflects his belief in their value to the team. However, during his tenure, he oversaw significant transfers, including the acquisitions of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Eric Bailly.
