The 55-year-old claimed in an interview in 2014 that he would like to spend his final few years in worldwide football, when he decides he needs "a little rest".

It seems the hierarchy have listened as the Daily Mail claim United have now agreed a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk that will see them pay an initial £43m with the fee potentially rising to £52.2m with various add ons.

Sharpe's scepticism extends to United's chances of holding on to second place next year, and the former winger thinks the club are more likely to be looking over their shoulders than than challenging their neighbours.

"I would say I am even further away from being exhausted now than I was a few years ago". "I would say I am even further away from being exhausted now than I was a few years ago". Arnautovic previously played under the United boss when he was on loan at Inter in 2009/10, albeit for only a handful of matches.

Austria are back in action on Saturday when they take on current World Cup holders Germany in an global friendly.

However, he is also confident Portugal can spring another surprise two years on from their Euro 2016 triumph.

Mourinho said Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo had a similar effect to Argentina's Lionel Messi, describing both as "so good that they can make their teams better than they are on paper".
