Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has claimed that manager Jose Mourinho could quit the club at the beginning of the season.

United’s pre-season tour has left Mourinho frustrated after winning just once against Real Madrid in six games.

Mourinho has completed three summer signings including midfielder Fred, right-back Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant.

However, the Portuguese boss has made it clear that he is unhappy with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s transfer policy, as he still needs two more signings this summer.

Therefore, former England midfielder Ince believes Mourinho could willingly leave the club or be sacked by the club if they make a poor start to the 2018-19 season.

“Jose has said that he wants to stay at United for life. To be fair, most managers would say that,” Ince told Paddy Power.

“But managers do get frustrated. They want to take the club forward, they want to build and bring players in. He sees Liverpool spending big and he wants to compete.”

“If he feels he’s not getting that from Ed Woodward and the Glazers, he’s going to be grumpy.

“The start of the season is so important for United, they’ve got to get off to a good one.

“If not, it’s going to go back to the same situation as last season, where the fans were on his back.

“If it does, he’ll say enough’s enough and walk out – or the board might say the same and make a change.”

The Red Devils will open the 2018-19 Premier League season at home against Leicester City on Friday 10.
