It’s fair to say it’s been a difficult three seasons for Manchester United since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

After years of being at the summit of English football, the Red Devils have had to deal with finishing seventh under David Moyes, fourth in Louis van Gaal’s debut season and then having to settle for fifth before the Dutchman was sacked.

But, after the appointment of Jose Mourinho, there seems to be an air of expectation at Old Trafford once again.

Not only has the Special One arrived, he has also secured the services of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. If the Portuguese boss can capture Paul Pogba, then United will surely be favourites to win the title next season.

While the fans are expecting Premier League glory once again, what is Mourinho aiming for? Yep, you guessed it, nothing less than becoming champions.

“The message from the owners and Mr Woodward was this — ‘Get your three years, do your work, improve the team and bring us back where we belong during a three-year period,’” he told The Sun.

“My message was that I wanted to win the title in the first season.

“I want to be a champion. To say before the season starts that the top four is the target? The top four is not the target. We want to play to be champions.”

Well, that’s pretty conclusive. Mourinho is aiming to win the Premier League next season and, if they complete the signing of Pogba, it would take a very brave man to count them out.
