Mourinho suggests United were 'not prepared to win' before his arrival

Arsene Wenger will take an Arsenal team to Old Trafford to face Manchester United for the final time on Sunday.

The Portuguese succeeded Louis van Gaal in May 2016 and won the EFL Cup to become the first manager in Manchester United history to win a trophy in his debut season at the club.

"If he respects me 50 per cent of what I respect him then we can be friends in the future, because I have lots of respect for him", Mourinho told Sky Sports News. "In France we say au revoir which means you might see me again".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed meeting with former Manchester United chairman Martin Edwards about the manager's job.

As it stands, he has five matches left in all competitions, but he could salvage one last outing in a Europa League final should his men negotiate a way past Atletico Madrid come Thursday.

After all, Wenger has had some intense battles with United and Mourinho down the years.

"We needed that, a bit more experience, mental aggressiveness".

"We always want to fight".

United signed Sanchez from Arsenal in January in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates.

"Man United fans know that until 2004 for about a decade was between Man United and Arsenal, was between Sir Alex and Mr Wenger and I think that these great teams Arsenal had made Man United better and better".

Sanchez has struggled to showcase his best form in a United shirt during his first three months with them but bagged the equaliser in the FA Cup semi final victory over Tottenham last Saturday.

Mourinho also said there was "no chance" that keeper David de Gea would be allowed to leave the club in the close season.

There's been an outpouring of appreciation for Wenger since he announced earlier in April that this season would be his last with the Gunners.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has insisted he deserves credit for bringing Mohamed Salah, who has scored 43 goals for Liverpool this season, to Stamford Bridge and that it was Chelsea that chose to sell the Egyptian after he was sacked.
