While in his Chelsea days that tactic was successful - no more so than in the 1-0 win at Manchester City in February 2014 - in more recent times he has really struggled to assert control away from home in the big games.

Spaniard Alvaro Morata scored the victor that re-ignited Chelsea's hopes of retaining the title as they sit just one point behind second-placed United and third-placed Tottenham Hotspur after 11 league games.

And this is why he must leave Manchester United.

On Monday, just hours after Manchester United's loss at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho was linked with PSG again. However, the gaffer feels that the club needs to be more competitive in the transfer market.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will be told to offload players if he wants to add to his squad in January.

So ahead of the January sales, Express Sport have taken a look at who Manchester United could sign and who they could sell in the next transfer window.

The Premier League club's latest financial results were released in September and showed a significant rise in their wage bill, with an increase of 13.5% to £263.5m.

However, according to the BBC, the United board are planning to inform the Portuguese manager that signings can only be made if players are offloaded.

The Spanish midfielder has been something of a regular fixture in the first team at Old Trafford since Mourinho's appointment at the club back in the summer of 2016.

Fellaini is a favourite of Mourinho but is out of contract at the end of 2017/2018.

As far as Jose Mourinho will view it, the club offers two things, then: the possibility to become a legend and the probability of making it happen.

United now sit second in the Premier League table, but Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea left them eight points adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City, who also spent big money during the summer. By the day, this is becoming a major topic regarding the future of Mourinho.

The Red Devils are now eight points behind rivals Manchester City following Sunday's 1-0 defeat away at Chelsea.
